Oh Paula. 

She's seems to be holding it together a little better this year, than last year and especially her reality show which was a pain killing bloody drunken mess! However, tonight on American Idol, Paula is getting back to her drugged self.

After the last 5 contestants were through their first round of Neil Diamond songs, Paula judged Jason on his second song.  Randy really tried to cover for her by gently nudging her with a, "it's just the first song".  Even Simon was doing damage control at high speeds.  

We see the start of something beautiful.
