Ellen quits Idol

I think she quit before she was fired. She said it was hard for her to judge and hurt their feelings. Really? She was a huge fan of the show, did she not know she'd have to actually judge? Apparently not. She admitted on Larry King Live that she lied many times when she complimented contestants.

The original executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe, is (reportedly) returning to the show and has made it clear that he'd like to replace all the judges. He said in the past that when Simon left, he'd like to shake things up. And he hated the 4-judge format. As he put it in an interview, once you've been told you suck, you really don't need to hear it three more times.

I actually thought she did better than I expected, but then my expectations were really low. Not that I dislike her, but she really was a fish out of water.

Other rumor is that J Lo is close to signing a deal as a new judge.

Chris Isaac is the MAN!

He would be great for the show, and maybe a whole new audience will discover one of the most underrated artists ever.

Poor Ellen. I love her on her show, but she really didn't fit on Idol. She is too nice.

Kara is out, too. I think her contract was not renewed.

Today's rumor, Jlo and Steven Tyler (ewwwww!) are in. Well, it's not like either of them are doing anything else. But Steven Tyler? Not sure he can stay out of rehab long enough. Plus, ewwwwww! He's a mess to look at and listen to.

I also heard Jessica Simpson as a rumor for a judge.

Boy that sounds like a recipe for disaster. I don't see any chemistry in that trio (I've read that Randy is in). I think Steve would be the Simon replacement for telling it like it is, but he just doesn't have the charisma to pull it off like Simon. And really...if you're trying to be current...hiring someone who peaked in the 70s and had a second flash in the 90's isn't going to do it. And that's coming from someone who likes Aerosmith (who are actually on tour right now, so he does have something to do for a couple more months anyway).
