After quitting "American Idol," Abdul teamed up with Simon Cowell once again for 2011's "X Factor." The 52-year-old found herself in limbo once again, however, after it was announced that she would not be returning to the show for the 2012 season. Abdul recently served as a guest judge on season 10 of "So You Think You Can Dance" and "So You Think You Can Dance Australia." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Jemal Countess/Getty)
