Ellen DeGeneres leaving American Idol; Kara Fired; Jo-Lo and Steven Tyler New Judges

  1. 0 After one year as judge, Ellen is leaving American Idol. Ellen DeGeneres said she realized that while she "loved discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings." Talks are in the works with Jennifer Lopez to be her replacement. What a switch!!

    Henry Connick Jr. is a possibility to replace Simon. Whatever happens, it will certainly be different with the upcoming season.

    Wow that was a switch. I never liked the idea of four judges, they should let her go and just replace Simon.

    I liked it better with 3 judges too. There gets to be too much time tied up with the judges' commentary.

    Shania was funny. J Lo got some flack because she was gaga over Sanjaya Malakar when she hosted and he was intensely disliked. However, during Latin week I remember he was real good.

    Well, maybe she is too emotional . .. . ala Paula.

    I dunno - just keep it to three judges.

    And stop saying "Yo . . .Dude" . . ..

    Should have fired Randy . . . . Kara at least knew what she was talking about and didn't say "You Go Girl!" or "Word" or "My Bad" or any other aggravating cliche that a girl could use . . .like Randy does.

    Steven Tyler huh . . .well, I dunno . . ? I guess we will see.

    I HATE Steven Tyler...he might be intelligent in his own way, but he's so washed up from ciggarettes, drugs and alcohol I wonder if there are any brain cells left. He's so old kids won't be able to relate. Good excuse for me not to get too involved. Nine years is plenty.

    The rumor mill has him replacing Kara, and Simon's spot is still open.

    Randy was enduring with his "yo dawg!". He has been in the biz and is a good judge IMO. For the most part I liked Kara, but she irritated the crap out of me with her "I don't know who you are..." crap. The poor kids were bumfounded by her.

    Yeah, that's true about Kara.

    Randy just rubs me the wrong way.

    And you are definitely right about Steven . ... . I just didn't wanna say it.

    But isn't J-Lo in for sure for Ellen and Steven in for Simon? They really aren't going to stay with four are they???

    Some of the press I'm reading is Steven is replacing Kara......but it could just be three judges. I'd like three judges like I said, just not him.
