Washington (ANI): Rumours are abuzz that former American Idol judge Paula Abdul is in discussions either to host or judge Australian Idol, Australia's version of the TV talent contest.
The rumours came in the wake of the firing of one of the Australian Idol 's judges, Kyle Sandilands, who, on his radio show, had strapped a 14-year-old girl to a lie detector and quizzed her about her sex life, reports Contactmusic.
Abdul recently announced she would not be returning to her post as a judge on American Idol when the show kicks off its ninth season. In the week since announcing her departure, Abdu has reportedly been offered to judge 'So You Think You Can Dance' and even appear on TV show 'Ugly Betty'.
Now, the star is said to have been approached by the Aussie version of America's most-watched TV talent show.
