AI Rant

I think replacing Paula Abdul with Ellen DeGeneres on American Idol is pure crazy talk.

I personally like shows where the judges actually have some knowledge/experience about the topic they are judging. Perhaps I don't know about Ellen's successful singing career? Her successful record label? Maybe she's lived in Detroit or Nashville? Or, maybe, sometime in her past, she has listened to the radio, and that is all it takes to be a judge on American Idol.

I hope next year they replace Simon with Steve Carell.

Ha! Steve Carell! That is funny.

You know I am not a major Idol fan. I can see how you would be annoyed by this wild turn of events, but I think Ellen is hilarious. Totally cracks me up.

I'm sorry. But it's true. I think she'll bring some much-needed humor to the show and will ease the tension those poor Idol hopefuls feel on that stage.

I don’t know that she'll be a great fit...I mean come on Paula was straight up in the music I wonder what the change in dynamics will be on the show...from what I've seen Paula isn't quite as opinionated as Ellen. I think the Steve Carell idea is GENIOUS!
