Has Paula gotten Smarter?

I've been an American Idol fan for a while now, in fact from the very start. I've been commenting to the TV Set that Paula is seeming much smarter, incisive and interesting this year than in the past. I see I am not the only one to notice :)
"Advantage Paula, who, over and over again this season, has managed to emit little nuggets of wisdom. While the numerically challenged Kara tends to ramble and repeat stock phrases - "Who are you as an artist?" "What we're looking for is artistry. . ." - Paula finds an apt analogy or suggests a useful bit of stagecraft. She told since-departed Megan Joy Corkrey, who danced like one of those plastic Hawaiian hula dolls, that she should sit on a stool beneath a spotlight. She told blind pianist Scott MacIntyre that he was boring us by sitting behind a piano every week. And while Simon poked fun at her in both cases, Paula happened to be right." (from Globe.com)
