We’re so psyched to see Ellen DeGeneres team up with Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi on American Idol that we can barely wait until next Tuesday, February 9th. Luckily, Fox has released a quick preview to whet our appetites.
Contestants seem to learn early on that flattery, not talent, is the best way to win over Ellen. However, the host-turned-judge recently told Entertainment Tonight that she’s learning to get tough.
“[I’m] getting good at delivering bad news,” Ellen said. “I’m trying to do it in a tender way… I hate hurting people’s feelings, so that, I think, is the hardest part.”
Check out the video below and let us know what you think of Ellen’s debut.
