Paula Abdul

American Idol was once the place to go for Paula Abdul's adorably nonsensical ramblings. (Come for Simon Cowell, stay for the crazy!) Sadly, that ship has sailed—just ask Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler—and everyone's favorite kooky multihyphenate has found a new home over on CBS' reality dance competition Live to Dance.

But brace yourselves, Paula fans, because the company she's keeping this time around ain't got nothin' onRyan Seacrest (or even Randy Jackson), and it will probably just leave you scratching your heads...

Let us present to you your Live to Dance cast! Holding down hosting duties is none other than Andrew Günsberg—wait, who?! You know, former cohost of Australian Idol. Bet that clears it up for you.

And on a slightly (slightly!) more recognizable note , Paula's judge's table cohorts will consist of former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and Michael Jackson's This Is It choreographer Travis Payne. Of course, Abdul will serve as lead expert, mentor and executive producer of Dance.

Wait, so there's no Simon Cowell for awkward flirting, and there's no superprofessional host Seacrest or even a Cat Deeley type to keep the Paula train running on time? Mmm...Forgive us, but we're not optimistic about the future of this series.

Let us know what you think, Paula fans. Is Live to Dance right up your alley, or does it leave you longing for the Idol days?
