Ellen DeGeneres joins American Idol


Comic Strip Live! Alumni Ellen DeGeneres has joined the cast of the phenomenally-popular Fox Television show American Idol as a judge for its 9th season.

DeGeneres, one of the brightest and most successful stand-up stars of the last 20 years replaces dancer Paula Abdul on the panel. Ellen will bring a hilarious and creative perspective to what is often thought of as a cold and in compassionate judges booth.

Yesterday Ellen was quoted as saying: “I’m thrilled to be the new judge on American Idol. I’ve watched since the beginning, and I’ve always been a huge fan. So getting this job is a dream come true, and think of all the money I’ll save from not having to text in my vote.”

We at the Comic Strip Live! wish Ellen the best of luck on this exciting new endeavor!
