Filed under : Entertainment


Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has been named as the new judge on hit television series “American Idol,” replacing Paula Abdul for the upcoming season of the ratings giant.

Ellen made the surprising announcement on her talk show.   Check out the clip.


“Getting this job is a dream come true, and think of all the money I’ll save from not having to text in my vote,” says Ellen.  

“Ellen has been a fan of the show for many years, and her love of music and understanding of the American public will bring a unique human touch to our judging panel. I can’t wait for this next season to begin,” added AI creator and executive producer Simon Fuller.
