ETA: I almost forgot! Paula Abdul choreographed and worked with the kids on tonight’s big Disco group number!
John Jay and Rich, the morning DJs at KISS Phoenix reported on their radio show this morning that something “big” is going to happen on tonight’s results show–something that’s never happened before.
The DJs are in Los Angeles–broadcasting from Ryan Seacrest’s studios–to attend this week’s Idol shows.
Last night, John Jay sent off a few overheated tweets hinting at something major going on in Paula’s dressing.
This morning they elaborated a bit.
While hanging out in Paula Abdul’s dressing room with her lawyer and agent, the DJs overheard discussions that spoke of Paula’s future as if leaving Idol next year was a done deal.
“They were talking as if she were done with American Idol, ” said John Jay.
According to reports, Paula’s contract is up this year, and she still has not negotiated a new one. Paula told Cynthia McFadden in a Nightline interview set to air Thursday, “It’s not about replacing anybody. It’s about possibly moving on.”
They also had the opportunity to hang out with the Idols on set. There, they learned the details of what will go down tonight. They were told NOT to discuss it on radio this morning.
Listen to the podcast here:
I still think all this talk from Paula about leaving is posturing. If she leaves Idol what’s she gonna do? Lame reality shows for MTV? I say she’s angling for more money.
