Ellen DeGeneres to Select Simon Cowell’s Replacement on Idol
The clock is ticking, and Ellen is eager to find a new judge.
Although Ellen DeGeneres has only been a part of the American Idol crew for a few weeks now, she is fully permitted to lend her two cents when it comes to finding a suitable replacement for judge Simon Cowell.
The comedian, who is rumored to be butting heads with the no-nonsense Brit, was quick to tell TV Guide Magazine that Howard Stern will definitely not be joining the team.
“No one knows where that came from,” DeGeneres stated. “I’m a part of that next person coming in, and I’ve had talks with Simon Fuller and a few people over at Fox. We have people that we’re thinking about, and we want it to be a really exciting name and someone who would add something different to the panel.”
