Abdul Raves About 'Idol' DVD

(Posted November 23, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

Because of complicated issues involving clearances and copyright law, the first four seasons of FOX's "American Idol" are unlikely to arrive on DVD in uncut form any time soon, a fact that disappoints judge Paula Abdul.

"That's the whole political stuff that I don't get," Abdul admits. "If it were up to me, it'd be different. Sometimes, when a show is so successful like 'American Idol,' it's hard to get everything right, the way you want it to be."

Fortunately, an exhaustive 10-hour-plus compilation of the best and worst "Idol" moments will finally hit shelves this Tuesday (Nov. 22), in a collection dominated by fresh contributions from Abdul. While Ryan Seacrest, Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson appear only in canned highlights, Abdul offers new analysis, interviews former contestants and even opens up herself in a lengthy discussion available on the bonus disk of the "American Idol - The Best & Worst of American Idol" limited addition.

The individual "Best" and "Worst" DVDs are also packaged separately and Abdul is well aware that the assembled masterworks of William Hung, Scary Mary and "Like a Virgin" Keith are likely to be more popular than the more melodic stylings of Constantine Maroulis, Kelly Clarkson or Clay Aiken. She insists that the showcased horrendous auditions represent the true bottom of the barrel, rather than the myriad fakers who show up every year.
