We’ve just received news that talk show host Ellen Degeneres will not serve as the judge of Americanson – and after losing the notorious Simon Cowell, fans are left wondering what’s going to happen.
With a cult-like following, it’s important that the show is able to bring the right judges and personalities to the table.Reports have surfaced that J-Lo will serve as a judge, but whether that’s for just one season or longer is unknown. Now, new sources are saying that Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler may also be joining the popular show as a judge. But, will fans be happy with these choices? Obviously, they’re both musically-talented and can help the contestants as they make their way through the weeks of the contest. The show proved with Paula Abdul in the beginning that fans would be able to connect with singers that were…well, a little older than the target audience, perhaps. But hey, Steven Tyler is nothing less than a legend, so perhaps it will work out.
So, what’s the reason for Ellen’s departure from the show? She says she let judges know months ago that it wasn’t right for her, but that she’d stay until they could figure out where to go next. Ellen says she enjoyed nurturing the talent on the show, but sometimes found it hard to hurt the feelings of the contestants. In addition to that, her schedule became more than she had bargained for with Idol added in to the mix.Don’t worry, though – fans of Ellen can still catch her show and enjoy her witty and charming personality. As for Idol, dedicated fans probably won’t stop watching the show just because the judges are changing…at least, I know I won’t!
