Singer PAULA ABDUL would never have appeared on a show like AMERICAN IDOL when she was a struggling artist because her co-host on the show, SIMON COWELL, would have devastated her.
The STRAIGHT UP singer has sat next to Cowell on the show for the past four years, but she remains one of his fiercest critics, insisting he's too harsh on wannabes.
She says, "Consensus amongst every recording artist I know: 'Heck no.' Who wants to audition in front of Simon Cowell?"
