Abdul lands TV show after quitting Idol

Abdul has been carefully plotting her next move since relinquishing her seat on the TV talent contest earlier this month (Aug09).

Just weeks after insisting she had been flooded with “wonderful offers”, the star has announced she’s signed on to anchor VH1 Divas next month (Sep10).

Abdul announced on her Twitter page: “Hi guys! I’m really excited to announce I’ll be hosting this year’s VH1 Divas! The show will be live on Sept 17th @ 9 pm EST.

“This year’s VH1 Divas show will honor Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks, Leona Lewis and Miley Cyrus – I am so excited!!”

The show is set to air live from New York’s Brooklyn Academy of Music Howard Gilman Opera House.
