Ellen Leaves American Idol
After just one season as a judge…
Friday, July 30, 2010 - 10:54
Ellen Degeneres is the latest judge to leave the American Idol panel.
The chatshow host only joined the show for the last season after Paula Abdul left.
In a statement she said: “I loved discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings.
“A couple months ago, I let Fox and the American Idol producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me.”
That leaves Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi on the panel, although there are rumours that AI could bring in a whole new set of judges.
