Paula Abdul Is (Temporarily) Returning to "American Idol," Which Calls for a Throwback Puzzle

As season 19 of "American Idol" heads into its first week of live shows, judge Luke Bryan will be absent while he recovers from COVID-19. To make up for his loss, "Idol" is bringing in an expert: Paula Abdul herself. Abdul, as you remember, was part of the original judging panel that also included Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell; season 9 was Abdul's last with the show.
