    Hey I think Ellen is great. As far as I know Simon cannot sing either. I agree though, when he leaves, the show dies, he is American Idol. To bad I probably won't watch it anymore.


    OK, so Ellen doesn't sing, so what? My husband and I have a radio show in Atlanta, yet he's the only one of us with a music-business background. Yet people say they love the music we choose to play.Music is art, and as such, it's subjective. I think people with ears can generally discern between sonic pleasure and sonic disaster. Art is subjective, not objective. And is Howard Stern a musician? I think not. What qualifies him, his nastiness? I'd rather see Joel McHale as a judge. At least he's witty. HowardStern is just sub-adult.


    What's to hate about Ellen? She's funny and she seems cool. She's not hateful and she doesn't say snarky things.To me, that suggests a decent person.


    ellen ellen ellen... hope they will hire Conan O' Brien as guest judge someday


    i agree. i dont understand how ellen got a spot on american idol.
    she doesnt sing at all....and to be honest she's not a very good comedian either. if they want funny then simon shouldnt be leaving next season. i was a total fan until now....and when he leaves the show is totally going to sink!!!!


    I was wondering how Ellen DeGenerate has any kind of qualifications to judge raw musical talent? At least Paula Abdul could lip sync to her own synthesized 80's songs! Ellen must be on the hunt for a new singing wife/girlfriend.


    I fully agree that Didi is the package and her style is unique and refreshing. Crystal was amazing as well as Andrew but they're not the package. Casey I love for his bluesy style and quite a looker. He is the only guitar player whose style is different from rest. Katie is a very accomplished singer at 16. I'm looking forward to Tyler Grady and the 16 yr old Aaron.


    Ellen the Carpet Muncher has ZERO musical qualifications to judge anything except for a lesbian carpet munching contest and therefore I stopped watching Idol.
    Peace Out!


    Casey James kinda sucked. I will be "floored" if he makes it to the top 24, let alone any further. He reminds me of a less talented Jason Castro...
