Ellen To Judge Without Judging This Season On Idol
The audition rounds are still airing for the ninth season of American Idol, however Hollywood is only a few weeks away and with it, we’ll get to see Ellen DeGeneres take over as the fourth judge, filling Paula Abdul’s chair. Fox released two video interviews, one of which features Ellen as she talks about getting the job and the other features Simon, who talks mostly about the auditions and guest judges.
Simon said Chicago was his favorite audition round, which is weird to me as that episode had to be the most boring audition episode in Idol history and if memory serves, only thirteen people from the two-day audition run in Chicago were given a golden ticket.
As for Ellen, she talks about being honest without being mean and how she took the gig as judge in an effort to get a better seat to the show. Videos below!
Fox has the Hollywood rounds scheduled to begin airing on February 9th.
