Paula Abdul preps for her new CBS show, laments the loss of the original ‘Idol’ family
While Abdul touted the additions as “seasoned entertainers” and asked “the heavens above” to supply them with the same amount of fun she had, she was also quick note the loss in what had made “Idol” special.
“It’s a completely different show now, ” she said. “But, you know, change is necessary at times.
