Fox has announced that Paula Abdul has quit American Idol. Abdul told her fans on Twitter Tuesday night that "with sadness in my heart" she has decided not to return for a ninth season.
Fox TV said in a statement that it is sad to see Abdul leave the hit reality show and that the pop singer was an important part of the show.
On Monday it was announced that Kara DioGuardi would be returning for a second year as a judge.
In July Abdul has said she had been invited to stay with American Idol for as long as the series lasted. She had been hopeful about negotiating a contract with the producers.
"I'll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day 1 become an international phenomenon," Abdul said on Twitter.
