If Paula hasn't made her mind up yet and doesn't have a contract inked by June 14th, I think its Bye Bye Paula!!

I won't be upset with her leaving. I figured Kara was brought in to replace her anyway. I prefer Kara's comments anyway.

Wow, they don't waste any time! Gotta keep that money train running...

I think it has less to do with the money train and more to do with the fact that they kept dealing with inclement weather over the past few years on occasion during auditions. Hurricane season tends to throw things off. More people can show up during the summertime too.

There may be speculation about which judges will be returning to "American Idol" next season, but there's no question about one "Idol" regular: Host Ryan Seacrest is definitely back on board in a big way.

Who if Seacrest didn't feel like a wealthy man before, he is now making professional athlete numbers...

I'll definitely be tuning in to the auditions to see some of the guest judges. I'm most excited about Posh Spice(she'll never be Victoria Beckham to me!). Katy Perry, Kristin Chenoweth and NPH. Maybe watching the auditions will suck me in to the season....but it's going to be so hard not seeing Paula. (and I can only imagine how annoying Ellen will be)

EXCLUSIVE: FOX TO FLIP "TARGET," "IDOL" ON WEDNESDAYS

By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

Newcomer "Target" will still launch on Sunday, January 17 at 8:00/7:00c and get a post-"Idol" boost on Wednesday, January 20 at 9:00/8:00c.

Beginning January 27 however, "Target" will assume the 8:00/7:00c slot on Wednesdays with "Idol" following at 9:00/8:00c.

Said news, set to be formally announced later today, was confirmed to the site exclusively this morning.

'American Idol' reverting to form -- yay or nay?

By Andrea Reiher

December 23, 2009 9:44 AM

"American Idol" announced Tuesday that it's reverting back to a Top 24, with 12 men competing against each other and 12 women competing against each other. Is this a good thing?

We say yes. A resounding yes, for several reasons: gender balance, higher quality and more exposure before Top 12 starts.

Gender Balance

We love guys, nothing against 'em. But last year's "American Idol" Top 12 was 8 men and 4 women. We attribute this to the fact that the majority of people who vote (vote, not watch) on "American Idol" are female and they may be swayed by a cute guy who isn't actually one of the best vocalists. Then what happens is a female (usually a quirky girl, a la Jesse Langseth or Mishavonna Henson) gets left out who maybe could have made the Top 12 in lieu of a Scott McIntyre or Jorge Nunez, who maybe should not have.

Higher Quality

With a Top 24, each singer has to perform three times before they can reach the Top 12. Now of course, there could be someone who just has a bad night right out of the gate and goes home too soon. But more often than not, we really do cull it down to the best 12 out of the 24 the judges hand us because three performances is enough to know if someone can hack it or not.

More Exposure

This goes hand-in-hand with the quality issue. Last year, we saw each finalist exactly ONCE unless they were in the Wild Card night. That stunk. We like to be more familiar with our finalists before Top 12. For example... your recapper saw Kris Allen sing "Man in the Mirror" and didn't like it, so it took her a long time to come around on him once the Top 12 started. Also, the first three people to advance (Alexis Grace, Michael Sarver, Danny Gokey) were distant memories by the time the Top 12 started and maybe that's why Alexis Grace went home too early.

So is the Top 24 gender-split format that "American Idol" instituted in season 4 a good thing? We come down firmly on the "yay" side. What do you guys think? Vote below!

Jan. 13: Atlanta

Jan. 19: Chicago

Jan. 20: Orlando

Simon Cowell Will Leave American Idol, His Brother Says

Dec 22, 2009 04:36 PM ET by Joyce Eng

Simon Cowell will leave American Idol after the upcoming season, his brother says.

"A press statement is being prepared which will confirm what everybody expected: Simon will leave Idol at the end of 2010 to concentrate on bringing the American version of The X Factor to U.S. TV in 2011," Tony Cowell announced in his weekly podcast on his site, The Cowell Factor.

Fox declined to comment on the statement from Cowell's brother, a writer and broadcaster who co-wrote Simon's autobiography.

Cowell, whose existing contract expires after the upcoming ninth season and prevents him from bringing X Factor stateside, has been coy about his future with Idol. However, over the summer, the acerbic judge was reportedly near a deal to lock him in with the Fox juggernaut for another three seasons. The new deal would also allow him to executive-produce the American version of The X Factor for Fox.

The X Factor is a music talent competition similar to Idol that launched the career of Leona Lewis.

Cowell would be the second judge to jump ship, following Paula Abdul's departure in August. Ellen DeGeneres has been tapped to replace her.

The ninth season of Idol kicks off Jan. 12 at 8/7c.

Fox Ordering Three More Seasons of Idol

Dec 24, 2009 12:17 PM ET by Kate Stanhope

Simon Cowell's future on American Idol may be hazy but the future of the talent show is crystal clear.

Fox is in the process of ordering three more seasons of Idol, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Fox's deal with the talent competition's two producers, FremantleMedia and 19 Productions, currently runs through 2011 but a new deal would guarantee three additional seasons of the show, the trade paper reports.

The move comes days after Simon Cowell's brother said Cowell plans to leave Idol in 2010. "A press statement is being prepared which will confirm what everybody expected: Simon will leave Idol at the end of 2010 to concentrate on bringing the American version of The X Factor to U.S. TV in 2011," Tony Cowell announced in his weekly podcast on his site, The Cowell Factor.

Cowell has been hard at work to bring his successful British competition series, The X Factor, stateside, THR reports. The program, set to air on Fox, was originally intended to debut in the fall of 2010 but is now set to debut in 2011.

Cowell's departure, coupled with Paula Abdul's, could cost the show a few fans of the original lineup of judges. (The third original judge, Randy Jackson, seems happy to stay.) Fox is hoping to sign Cowell on for at least one more season of Idol when they hammer out the agreement for The X Factor, according to THR. Cowell's current contract ends after the show's upcoming ninth season.

The ninth season of Idol starts Jan. 12 at 8/7c.
