Paula Abdul Tapped To Headline 'Star Search' Reboot

Paula Abdul is set to headline an updated version of Star Search for ABC.

The 47-year-old former American Idol judge will reportedly host and judge the competition beginning in the summer, according to EW‘s Michael Ausiello.

No word yet on whether Star Search would interfere with fellow judge Simon Cowell‘s US version of The X Factor, which is set to debut in fall of 2011.

Star Search premiered in 1983 with host Ed McMahon and was briefly brought back to the airwaves in 2003 with Arsenio Hall.

Is this a good fit for Paula – YAY or NAY?

    NAY, she thinks she is worth more than SHE actually is. I think she can do BETTER with Simon’s new SHOW, But that’s just me making sense. The woman is crazy thinking she is Janet Jackson, sHE Better lay off those meds she is popping.

    oh my gosh, first the continuation of AI then, they are bring X-factor to the U.S., now a star search reboot i think that is too much. I guess disney aka abc wants to get on the band wagon finally, they tried in a few years ago with “the one…” and that bombed, i guess they are finally realizing ****** cyrus and the gay jonas brothers are losing their steam so they want fresh talent and people with actual talent.
