Crystal ball predictions for next season:
Simon will hold out for more $$$. After they cave and give him $1 million an episode, he will return about half way through the show.
No more Paula. Kara will take over as the lone female judge. She will then deny reports that she is only on the show because she slept with Simon.
Simon and Paula get married in a secret ceremony.
Randy J. hosts his own FOX show called "The Biggest Dawg". The show will flop, mainly because Simon will become envious and threaten to leave AI.
Seacrest will reveal a secret. I think we all know what that is already.
Simon and Paula will get divorced. Luckily, Paula refused a pre-nup so she now is richer than every human being on the planet combined.
Simon becomes distressed over the divorce and makes the contestants sing only Paula Abdul songs for 3 weeks straight.
Paula returns to the show after Kara's "mysterious dissappearance".
The 3 original judges star in their own sitcom called "Three's a Crowd". The show is about 2 regular people living with 1 misfit.
