Ellen DeGeneres Joins the American Idol Judges Panel for Hollywood Week

Are You Excited About Ellen Joining American Idol?

While rumours still circulate about who might replace a departing Simon Cowell (with Howard Stern adding his name to the list of contenders), tonight begins the American Idol makeover! To kick-start the Hollywood week portion of auditions, we'll be saying good-bye to guest judges as Ellen DeGeneres takes her place on the panel—and I can't wait to see how she meshes with the team (particularly the curmudgeonly Simon Cowell). DeGeneres's involvement actually gets me pretty amped for this season. My personal wish: I would love to see her do her own version of "Pants on the Ground"!
