Paula Abdul leaving "American Idol"?

Paula Abdul leaving "American Idol"?

By SOP newswire2

On Friday`s edition of The Wendy Williams Show (syndicated, check your local listings) former American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks discussed the recent rumors about Paula Abdul leaving "American Idol" and performed her new single, "Battlefield."

American Idol winner (Season 6) Jordin Sparks talked with Wendy about her feelings regarding the possibility that Paula Abdul may not return to "American Idol" next season.

 JS: "I think they need to keep her. I love Paula, I adore her and as a former contestant, how we go through things it`s very stressful, mentally and physically as well. But the mental side, Paula is always there to soften the blow. She`s always, `Hey don`t worry, don`t let Simon affect you.` And if  she`s not there I think the contestants might be a little bit more traumatized."
