American Idol Has More Juice Than a Soap Opera

Ellen & Jlo

Wow. Did anybody watch Ellen on American Idol?? Well I cant say I did, BUT what I will say is that from the very onset of hearing she was gonna be on... I didnt get it. I mean for the funny factor yes, I LOVE Ellen. Do I think she has a good taste in music? Everybody knows Ellen loves music, sure, but did I see her fitting into a situation like judging on AI> Absolutely not.  Yesterday she released an official statement describing her decision to leave, and I hate to say it, but I was right..

A couple months ago, I let FOX and the "American Idol" producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn't leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on "Idol" and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.

In the meantime while everyone is feeling some kinda way about Ellen leaving after just one year..  there is word going around that theyve already found a few new faces for the panel. Jessica Simpson has been rumored to be joining in the past & most recently Ive caught wind that JLo will be an official American Idol Judge. Heres my thing, Ive been over the show for a while now. I think they should take a break and come back so that people are refreshed and miss the show. There are always gonna be people ready to audition, but Im sure their viewership is suffering from the saturation of AI in the past 6 + years. I wish Ellen & JLo and anyone else involved the very best. Ellen we just need you on your show... that will do for us!
