So Kelly Clarkson wasn't the only winner on "American Idol." All of a sudden, people care about Paula Abdul again.
So what's next for the woman who made dance-pop history as a choreographer for Janet Jackson and singer of hits such as "Forever Your Girl
"? Well, she'll apparently play a cheerleading coach in a new show for MTV called "Skirts."
More importantly, will she be back for the next "American Idol" in 2003?
So far, her only answer is a joke made to TV Guide Online: "It all depends on if Simon and I get back from our honeymoon on time." (Only Simon Cowell is signed on for season two so far.)
The other judge, name-dropping Randy Jackson (not one of those Jackson's), doesn't want things to change. "I think the public relies on a chemistry that they know. We've hit a groove now. It's like somebody having a hit song and saying, 'Uh, no, I did a hit pop song, but I want to play folk music now. Why do you change something that's working?"
