Ellen DeGeneres Bombs On American Idol! Fire Her Now! Please!

By Robert Paul Reyes

Ellen DeGeneres has achieved fame and success as a stand-up comedienne, sit-com actress, and as the the host of the syndicated talk show "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

ellenEllen has a very loyal following, and her talk show audience erupts in applause every time she sneezes or dances like a klutzy clown.

Put the American Idol fan base isn`t predisposed to like DeGeneres, and she has to work hard to prove to us that she`s qualified to be a judge.

Ellen has received good reviews for her debut on the popular show during Hollywood week. But I don`t have any kind words to say about Ellen, she`s a disastrous choice to replace the loveable Paula Abdul.

It should be kept in mind that there are still a gazillion contestants competing for the American Idol crown, and Ellen`s witty remarks were culled from hours and hours of footage. The American Idol producers are determined to make the awkward talk show hostess look good.

When there`s only 24 contestants left, the world will see that Ellen has no understanding of music, negligible charisma, and no meaningful interaction with her fellow judges.

The next person booted from American Idol shouldn`t be one of the young contestants, but the over-the-hill talk show host who knows zilch about popular music.
