Paula AbdulSorry, Paul Abdul fans. The former 'American Idol' judge won't be appearing on 'Star Search.'

EW.com reports that negotiations for the 'Straight Up' singer to host the revamped show and act as judge have halted.

ABC, however, is still planning to bring 'Search' back on the air.

Abdul has largely been absent from the small screen since vacating her seat on 'Idol.' She hosted VH1 'Divas' last September, and there has been talks of her joining 'So You Think You Can Dance?' and even Simon Cowell's upcoming American version of 'The X-Factor.'
