Fox has turned to focus group research to determine whether or not to bring Paula Abdul back to "American Idol," reports RadarOnline.com.
After negotiations broke down with the singer/choreogrpher-turned-judge, Abdul announced via Twitter that she had left the top-rated Fox show.
However, since that announcement, Abdul has been in talks for several other shows, including ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars." Fox is evaluating the results of the focus groups before asking her to come back to the show, RadarOnline says.
