Well, sort of. Ellen has voted herself off of American Idol.
She said, a couple of months ago she let FOX know that the show didn’t feel like the right fit for her. She also said she wouldn’t leave them in a bind, and would hang around with it until they decided where the panel was headed next.
She added, “while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on “Idol” and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.”
This could play into the reports that American Idol execs may blow the whole thing up and start again. Reports have also surfaced that Kara DioGuardi may be booted from the panel as well. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
