I know there are many American Idol fans on here so what do you think of Ellen becoming the new judge?



I hate all things American Idol but I love Ellen. I think I might tune in once in awhile just to see her.

I never watch AI, but she might spice things up enough to draw me in once or twice. She was a guest judge on the 100th episode of So You Think You Can Dance, but it was at the point in the show where the contestants were really the best of the whole bunch, so she had nothing but good things to say about the dance routines she watched. I don't know if anyone wants to hear her be really nasty on AI (a la Simon Cowell), but it might get tiresome to hear her do nothing but rave rave rave and suck up every single time.



Just my opinion.

I think she might lighten things up some. She is really funny and I enjoyed her on SYTYCD.

I think it's great news! I love me some Ellen (doggie adoptions aside). And there will FINALLY be an openly gay person on the show. It's about time AI embraced its inherent gayness

I will be watching some of it this time around. The only season I really cared for was the one with Chris Daughtry in it. I think the name "Daughtry" for his band was not at all a very clever though. :/



Anyway, Ellen is awesome!

I was surprised to hear that today! She is a total crackup and I love her, but it will be interesting to see what she can bring to the show.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Ellen, and sorta so-so about American Idol, so, yeah, I'll probably watch JUST because she's there...

I don't remember Ellen's dog adoption thing being bad? I thought she adopted them and it didn't work out like she'd hoped so she gave them to someone else, then the place she adopted them from demanded them back? I don't understand why you guys are associating her with the bad part of that ordeal, did I miss something?

I think Ellen's brand of comedy will be a huge draw for a while new audience, I am excited!

What qualifications does she have to judge singers?



...Or is she just going to be the comic relief?....

Happiness is not the result of a mathematical equation comparing the good times and bad times someone has had. It is a state of mind.

I actually like Ellen somewhat but it seems like a desperate attempt for ratings. I hope ratings continue to drop and this is the final season. I've watched almost every single episode in the show's history, but even I'm starting to get sick of the show.
