Original "American Idol" host Paula Abdul is reportedly making a comeback to the hit show -- for one episode, anyway. People.com is reporting that Abdul will appear on the season finale.

“The appearance was supposed to be a surprise for Simon,” a source said. “It’s a ratings grab. And it’s a one-time thing … She and Simon are still close.”

Simon Cowell is following Abdul out the door following this season to host a new reality competition show, "X Factor."
