    And so begins her slide into loser-ville. I predict that she’ll be doing infomercials in 2 years and Playboy in 3. What a dope.

      Tell Fox we want Paula back on Am Idol or we won´t watc it, I did. She is the heart of Idol. We love to watch it, a lot because of her and Simon. Their chemistry you can´t duplicate. We don´t want another judge, that will make the show worse.
      I said she deserves the raise she asked for. Simon, Randy and Ryan all got good deals so should she. She helped make Am Idol into the success it is today.
      If enough people write and object,and keep doing that. Fox, with and luck will come to their senses and bring her back to the liveshows, I not counting on that but maybe. Don´t give up. Tell others to write to.
      Thank you

    I love Paula so much

    • Sandra Forsed

      Write to Fox, I did that and said we want Paula back on Am Idol and give her the raise she asked for. Simon, Randy and Ryan all got good deals so should Paula. She is the heart of Idol. Her chemistry with Simon is irreplaceable. Those two are funny.She was there from the get go and helped make Am Idol into the success it is today. Something like that. With any luck she could be on the liveshows.
      I hope you write to Fox and tell others to do so as well.

    Wouldn’t it be an “edition” of the franchise, Mike?

  • Vivi

    I still can’t fathom why VH1 decided that Miley Cyrus was fit up to be in a lineup that included Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Jordin Sparks and Adele? They all have something this girl clearly lacks: TALENT! Geez, VH1? Were you that desperate for the 5-17 age group viewing?
    Pink should been in this lineup.

    Note to Paula Abdul: how can we miss you if you won’t go away?

    Where in the hell are the divas??? Diva is such an overused word. Kelly,Leona,etc. are NOT Divas!! Mariah! Whitney! Aretha! Patti! Diana! Those are Divas, I guess the real Divas heard ol’Miley was going to be there and passed on this bleak mess.

    • Amy

      I was thinking the same thing! MILEY CYRUS?!! She is permanently boycotted in our household. Run away, Paula!!!

  • Christopher

    Miley Cyrus is gross.

  • Josh

    Were the real divas busy that night? Paula eclipses all of them.

    • Sandra Forsed

      We want Paula back on Am Idol. That´s what I said when I wrote to Fox. I hope you do the same and tell others. She is the heart of Am Idol. The chemisty she has with Simon you can´t duplicate that. Those two are funny don´t you think?
      I said she deserves the raise she asked for. Simon, Randy and Ryan all got good deals. She can be on the liveshows. Don´t give up.

    This is like Divas-light.

  • Kristie

    I’m 25 and I love Miley Cyrus. her music is awesome and if you don’t know she sells millions of cdz and has broken many records history of Billboard. I’m not sure why Adele and Sparks aare there! Where is Britney…

    • dave

      I think Adele and Jordin Sparks are there because they have something we like to call TALENT! (Adele more so than Jordin, but Jordin at least has a good voice). Talent is a little thing that your precious Miley Cyrus is a bit lacking in. Just because someone sells millions of cds, it doesn’t mean they are talented. By your logic, we should consider Paul Blart Mall Cop one of the best films of the year.

  • Josh

    Miley is hot! I will watch this show and not tell anyone.

  • kahuna

    Good for Paula. At least she will earn some “pin money.” What a knucklehead.

  • Jesse

    THIS is the group that VH1 seeks to bring the DIVAS show back with? Are you kidding me?! Where’s Whitney, Celine, Cher, etc. I don’t care if they’ve been done before – they are the REAL divas. *sigh* This is very upsetting.

  • SimonCowell

    If you do not headline your own touur you should Not be called a diva. Jordin opens for Jonas and Spears–not a headliner. Adele has no tour. THE ONLY TWO WHO ARE HEADLINING TOURS ARE MILEY AND KELLY. SO U REALLY ONLY HAVE TWO DIVAS. Taylor Swifty cannot singy and would be embarrassing.

    • Mr.White

      selling records does not make one a diva.example.Brittany’s first 2 lps sold over 10million apeice in america.her last 2 maybe 2.5million together in america.this is a span under 10 years.headlining tours does not make one a takes time to become a must be relevant other than just selling records today.Miley,Kelly,Jordan,Taylor..none of them are divas.paula’s more of a diva

  • JonasBrothersFan

    I hate Miley cuz Nick is mine.
