Carrie Underwood Reunites With 'American Idol' Judge Paula Abdul Amid Show's Reboot

"So happy to reunite with the amazingly talented and equally handsome [Carrie Underwood] tonight. So proud of your journey", Paula captioned the snap on Wednesday, May 17.

On Monday, Abdul answered the big question of whether or not she would reprise her role as Idol judge.

The 54-year-old singer sat on the panel on the talent show from 2002 until 2009 and although she is "excited" that ABC is bringing it back, she isn't interested in being involved and thinks they need to start with an all-new line- up.

A special envoy representing Moon is due to visit China on Thursday for talks on THAAD and the overall bilateral relationship. North Korea said that the test was a legitimate defense against threats from a hostile US.

"I'm excited for the reboot", she said on the Today show.

Since her "Idol" days, Underwood has gotten married, had a baby, won a total seven Grammys, and has become one of the top female country music singers in the world.

According to reports, Carrie Underwood is in talks with ABC about being a part of the "American Idol" season 16 reboot. "All the way around-ABC, Disney, and the record label it's a great home for Idol".
