Extra nabbed Simon Cowell for his thoughts on life at the judge’s table minus Paula Abdul.
The show, he said is “different,” and “I miss her, of course.”
The tough judge doesn’t want to “get in the middle” of the “American Idol” execs and Abdul, but he dished that the chemistry between the judges is different without her. “Extra’s” Terri Seymour asked Cowell to explain and he bluntly answered, “It’s like comparing a carrot to a banana.”
Today, I think, is the final day of the judge’s auditions with Avril Lavigne. The 100-plus who made it through will go to Hollywood in November or early December.
I also watched Paula’s performance on “Drop Dead Diva.” (Lifetime sent me an advance copy). I did hear and watch what she did live a few weeks back in Peachtree City. She plays a faux judge in a dream sequence where she shoes off a judge’s robe with sequined pants and high heels. Her comic timing is surprisingly good. Check it out Sunday, Sept. 13 on Lifetime at 9 p.m.
