LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Former "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul is in talks to join ABC's "Star Search" revamp, sources said.

Abdul would likely be a judge of some kind on the new edition of the classic TV talent contest. ABC had been hoping to make a deal with Abdul since she left "Idol," with a "Dancing With the Stars" gig having been discussed.

Fox has also been looking at Abdul as a potential judge for Simon Cowell's "X-Factor," which gets underway next year.

One thing's for certain: When it comes to Abdul, one can never be certain what she's going to do.

ABC refused to comment; EW broke the news of ABC's negotiating with Abdul.
