you beat me to it! I was just coming here to mention that. The news guy this morning thinks it is a big mistake and that Ellen will loose her "likability" because she will now have to tell people they suck.
I agree with you Jeff, I think it is great and she will bring a measure of comedy to the show and yes, drive Simon nuts!! LOL
I love American Idol and I am really going to miss Paula. I think Ellen will be very funny on there but thought they only picked people with musical experience. I am looking forward to next season seeing she will be on there. I can't wait!
Elllen once toured a See's facility with her camera crew for her show...she is a big See's fan. She was absolutely a scream. Totally spontaneous. I don't know what she knows about music but since when was AI ever about music?
Funny thing is that the other night my wife was talking about her 'girl crush' on Ellen. She was thrilled when I broke the news to her this morning... after her initial disappointment that the new judge wasn't going to be Richard Gere or Jon Bon Jovi.

I've been watching American Idol since the 2nd season. I really look forward to the new season except now I can't watch it since she's one of the judges. I'm very sad.
They could have picked anyone else but her.
But the show will go on and I hope it provides more opportunities for people to reach their dreams. I just won't be watching them achieve it.
