Paula Abdul and American Idol

Tell Me a Story - comment.

So, Paula Abdul is to leave American Idol. Am I bovered?

Pretty she may be, useful to the show, she was not.

Half the time Paula Abdul appeared to be drunk or on drugs - and who needs that? I may be doing her an injustice, maybe she's been sick, maybe her nerves have played her up - but whatever, she's rarely added anything REALLY constructive to the show. Most of the time her mundane comments could have been cut and the show would not have suffered.

As writers, we quickly learn to remove unnecessary words and phrases. Paula Abdul was an unnecessary phrase. She needed editing a long time ago.

Maybe now, Simon Cowell will get down to the proper business of critcal analysis instead of pratting about with Paula....
