Singer Paul Abdul says she doesn't want to return to the judging panel of "American Idol".
The 54-year-old singer sat on the panel on the talent show from 2002 until 2009 and although she is "excited" that ABC is bringing it back, she isn't interested in being involved and thinks they need to start with an all-new line- up.
Speaking on the 'Today' show, she says, "I'm excited for the reboot. I think the ABC network is a wonderful network for it as well. I had an incredible time on that show and blessed to be part of it from the beginning, but I think they need to do a whole reboot."
The "Forever Your Girl" hitmaker made the revelation just days after her fellow "American Idol" co-judge Simon Cowell also said he wasn't interested in coming back.
The show ended back in 2016 after running for 15 seasons on Fox and ABC confirmed they were bringing it back last week.
