Simon Cowell wants Paula Abdul back as a judge on ‘American Idol," the acidic Brit told "Extra."
"She’ll be fine. She’ll be on the show," Cowell said, adding, "I don’t get a lot of say. I’ve just made it clear that I want Paula on the show."
We thinks Mr. Cowell’s opinion would actually carry a lot of weight, since he’s only got one more year on his contract and ‘Idol’ would most likely be in trouble if he left.
Abdul is currently negotiating a new contract for the show.
