The internet is abuzz after Paula Abdul’s shocking announcement that she won’t be appearing on the next season of American Idol. With her plans for what’s next up in the air, we’ve reached out to Paula and asked her to join the PETA crew as a celebrity judge for our next Cutest Mutt Alive contest.

Because Paula is a veteran at picking the (soy) cream of the crop from a slew of qualified contenders, she’s obviously the perfect choice to be our judge. I bet you’re thinking, “Hey, doesn’t Simon Cowell already work with PETA? Why not get him to judge the contest?” Simon is an avid animal activist, but the hard truth that he doles out may be a little too honest for these lovable mutts. We need someone who can let each pup down easy. Obviously, Paula’s the right woman for the job. So, Paula, what do you say?

    Seeing her on American Idol was so entertaining and I was really upset to hear that she had left. But knowing she would be doing this would totally make up for it plus some. I think she should!

    Paula should DEFINITELY do this! I want to be a judge! The puppies are sooooooooooooo cute.

  • Radelle says:

    Paula Helping animals is right up your alley. You would be great at this with your kind ways. I have been an avid animal advocate for more than 30 years now. The greatest thing in the world to do with life is to defend helpless andor defenseless animals. Doing a TV show is fine but also remember to help animal organizations on the side like I do. As for being a judge on a show with animals that is where I believe you will shine!

    Wow! another reason we love Paula. She is too good for Idol!

  • Julian Abbott says:

    Paula Abdul is a fantastic singer. If she actually has a heart as well then she’s the complete person. And a person with a heart always cares about animals. Julian Abbott

    Paula after 8 years of listening to some of the most excrutiating auditions on the planet you deserve some fun. I urge you to say yes to this offer. The mutts are cute and they won’t tell you they are great singers when they are tone deaf.
