Paula Abdul's Dance Card Empty — Will She Reunite with Simon?

If Simon Cowell wants Paula Abdul for X Factor, it appears a major obstacle has been cleared.

Although a CBS spokesperson maintains that no final decision has been made, sources confirm that Abdul’s low-rated reality series Live to Dance will not be returning for a second season.

Despite a promising start in the ratings, Dance stumbled mightily over the course of its seven-week run. Wednesday’s finale — which saw pint-sized ballroom dancers D’Angelo and Amanda take top honors — attracted only 4.8 million viewers.

So, will the ex-American Idol judge two-step her way back to Fox as an X Factor mentor? “She’s in the mix,” Cowell recently told Access Hollywood, “but, you know, a lot of people are in there.”

What do you think Abdul should do next? And are you disappointed Dance is dead? Hit the comments!
