Wow?! Really? I'm not sure what I think about this. I love Ellen, but...for Idol? I think this is actually a step down for her and I think she's risking a lot of overexposure.

I guess they are saying that she's going to represent us "common people" that aren't in the music business and all that.....


I never thought about the overexposure she'll get!!

I love Ellen too, but I don't think there should be anyone on the panel who can't tell if someone's singing out of tune, or who has no musical background at all. At least Paula Abdul had taken some singing lessons. The reason the panel is there is for expert feedback. IMO there's enough feedback from the common people already.

Just one more reason why I'm not watching it anymore.

I like Ellen, but I'm having a hard time picturing her on Idol.

I'm with all of you. I love Ellen but Ellen on Idol...I'm not so sure. Seems like any judge should have some musical talent or background in the field.
