Ellen DeGeneres takes over for Paula Abdul on ‘American Idol’

ellen_degeneresWhile we will all miss the antics of batsh*t crazy Paula Abdul on American Idol, her zany dyke replacement, Ellen Degeneres, will probably also serve up some pretty good times. I’m excited to see her interactions with fellow judges Simon Cowell, Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson.

DeGeneres told EOnline:

“I’m not leaving here, don’t worry about that,” the 51-year-old chatterbox reassured her audience when she made the announcement during a taping of Ellen.

“I’m gonna have a day job and a night job. The times we’re living in, we’re all doing that.”

And in case you were questioning her music-biz credentials…

“I don’t know how it happened myself,” she said. “I have not missed one episode of that show, I have watched every single thing, I love everything about it, and I love music, as you know.”

“Hopefully I’m the people’s point of view, because I’m just like you. I sit at home and I watch it…I’m not looking at it in a critical way, from the music producer’s mind. I’m looking at it as a person who’s going to buy the music, and who’s going to relate to that person.

“So I’m hopefully going to be the voice of what we’re all doing at home.”
