Just how big a shadow has Paula Abdul cast across the AI landscape?

Well, it’s taking a village to fill her judging spot on the panel. So far, here is the lineup who will be appearing in guest slots next to Simon, Randy and Kara during Season 9:

-Avril Lavigne
-Katy Perry
-Victoria Beckham
-Mary J. Blige
-Neil Patrick Harris
-Shania Twain
-Kristin Chenoweth
-Joe Jonas.

Will Paula be missed? At the end of the day, probably not all that much.

Different faces once in awhile will only give the viewer something else to critique.

If they would only toss in Regis Philbin, David Letterman and Sarah Palin … then we would really be in business.
