After Paula Abdul's manager said that it appears the American Idol judge would not return for season 8 of the FOX hit, her costars are singing a different tune.

"She'll be fine. She'll be on the show," judge Simon Cowell told Extra on Monday. "I don't get a lot of say. I've just made it clear that I want Paula on the show. Full stop."

Meanwhile, host Ryan Seacrest expressed a similar sentiment. “I think as far as I know you’ll see everybody back," he told the TV show. "I hope so."
