Why would anyone choose Ellen Degeneres to be a judge on American Idol?
I really do not think she is a good comedian, nor a good actress, and I believe she will bring Idols ratings down...
I think it's fairly safe to say that the show, while obviously popular due to the talent that is on display through the contestants, that there is also a strong comedic element as well, and that comedic element would seem to be strongest in the comments made by Simon. Rumor is that he will not be returning for the 10th season, if a 10th season will even be in the cards (which I think it just might), and so it would seem fairly logical to me that they would want to install somebody who can be humorous (whether or not we ultimately agree on either her brand of humor or Simon's is not at issue necessarily) but who can also relate to public scrutiny for reason beyond simple raw talent.
I'm not sure she's the best choice yet. But I do think it's also too early to call her into judgement. Let's give her a shot and see what she can do. If the powers that be see problems and believe she is the cause, they'll be very quick to make some changes.
I figured she was supposed to be funny and be the positive one in the group, but it doesn't seem to be working. It just is not very good when she is critical. Bring back Paula!

If so, I would like to engage in a discussion about this unhealthy addiction of mine.I predicted the who the Top 5 would be Seven weeks ago and I'm basking in it, but I'm also concerned for myself. To understand this type of absurdity must not be healthy at all.

Despite being disappointed by last years outcome, I'm looking forward to AI 9. Although, once it's on, I tend to become obsessed and since I review it, I spend WAY to much time on it! It's wild to think that in a few months I may be totally invested in something that won't change my life a bit!

Why is nobody anywhere I've been online discussing who will become the new Idol? Ok, Scotty or Lauren? who is going to be? my vote goes for Lauren, she's always been my favorite because she reminds me so much of my niece. How about you? Also, why does no one...
