Former pop star Paula Abdul is confident the next season of American Idol will be an even greater success - because she's had the hit show's set feng shui'd.

The STRAIGHT UP singer, who is a judge on the show alongside Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson, reportedly felt that the vibes on the set weren't quite right, so she called in an expert in the Chinese practice to help position things to create a more positive flow of energy.

An insider says, "Paula is a believer, and even had the furniture in her Hollywood Hills home rearranged by a feng shui expert."
