After a season spent conjecturing which of the four American Idol judges would be back for the next go-around, it’s now come down to this: nobody knows anything about anyone’s contract.


Fox hasn’t commented yet, but Paula Abdul‘s rep spoke to E! News about the fate of his client on the show.

"Negotiations are continuing. You probably won’t hear anything until closer to September, when judges are needed back to go on the road," Paula’s publicist, Jeff Ballard, says.

There were rumors that Kara DioGuardi would be quitting, or Paula, or Simon Cowell, but all four, including Randy Jackson, said at some point they want to come back.


Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
