"American Idol" judge Paula Abdul reveals what it's really like inside the show's audition room.
"The kids and the back stories are pretty amazing," Paul says of this seasons "Idol" contestants. "You're going to get even more attached to them."
ET caught up with Abdul at the Dare to Bare Your Skin challenge where she came out to support an initiative that encourages women to feel more confident in their own skin.
Here she opened up about what she thought of the audition of nephew to Donny and Marie Osmond, David, as well as the audition of a former Broadway Annie star.
At the event, Dr. Patricia Wexler showcased her products that leave skin radiant, even and ageless -- she's challenging Abdul and women everywhere to ditch their makeup and let their naturally gorgeous skin shine.
