One former Idol judge is on the Bret Michaels bandwagon.
Even though the whispers have died down since the finale, and his announcement that he might be taking over for Simon Cowell on American Idol next season, Paula Abdul stands behind Bret Michaels as a judge on the singing competition.
Paula told UsMagazine this weekend in New York City: “If he were to take that position I think he would be awesome at it because you’ve got to have a passion and love for music,”
Michaels has been in and out of the hospital for health reasons in the past month, but he surprised the world when he performed on the Idol finale, before he kicks off a string of live shows across the country.
Simon Cowell announced his leaving of American Idol before this past season started. He will be moving on to start up a US version of The X Factor.
