    April 6: Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, Ryan Seacrest and Randy Jackson pose backstage at an 'Idol' fundraiser.

    They may have seemed like arch enemies on the set of “American Idol,” but everyone’s favorite grumpy Brit Simon Cowell says the show will not be the same without Paula Abdul.

    “I didn’t want to get involved in what’s going on because it wasn’t really any of my business but I spoke to her a lot through the whole process,” Cowell told FOXNews.com’s Pop Tarts column. “She was the heart, so you’ve taken that away so it’s a different show. I’m sad, I am.”

    Read on to hear more of Simon’s thoughts and to see what Randy Jackson had to say about Paula’s decision.

    Cowell also said that he is confident Abdul will find success in whatever she does.

    “I will support her in anything she wants to do next. I think she is TV gold, genuinely.”

    Co-host Randy Jackson echoed Simon’s sentiments.

    “Me and Ryan and Simon and her started this journey together, so I’m really shocked and really proud and really just couldn’t believe she’s not here,” he told Tarts. “We love her, I’m sure she’s going to be great whatever she decides to do.”
