Paul Abdul said that she plans leaving American Idol after eight beautiful seasons.

"With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to Idol," Abdul, 47, Twittered. "I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day one become an international phenomenon."

"What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me," she added. "I do, without any doubt, have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all."
