As reports swirl about that American Idol judge Paula Abdul might not return to the show with only three weeks before the next season, her AI colleagues Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest don't want her to walk away. “She’ll be fine. She’ll be on the show," Simon tells Extra. "I don’t get a lot of say. I’ve just made it clear that I want Paula on the show. Full stop.”

Ryan is optimistic as well, adding, “I think as far as I know you’ll see everybody back. I hope so.”
