Seacrest in...Paula Abdul out?

While Ryan Seacrest made headlines last week with his record-shattering contract to return as host of American Idol—he always lands on his feet, that one—the nation's favorite Brüno victim may not be coming back if she doesn't get the contract she's bargaining for, according to her manager, David Sonenberg.

The rep aired the singer's dismay with current negotiations Friday, telling the Los Angeles Times Abdul would not return to the show if production companies FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment didn't step up with a Paula-pleasing contract.

Once news got out, fans and past hopefuls took to the Twitterverse to keep the contestant-compassionate judge on the Fox show, tweeting messages with "#keeppaula" in support.

"If it weren't for you, this specific time and situation would feel a whole lot worse," tweeted Abdul in thanks.

So should she stay or should she go? Let your voice be heard below.
