Ellen DeGeneres out in American Idol

Ellen DeGeneres was reported to quit her judging stint in American Idol. She never got comfortable in saying “no” to the aspirants of American Idol, especially in telling them that they better go back to their day jobs.

Last night, DeGeneres stated that she already told Fox and the producers of American Idol a couple of months ago that the judging stint did not fit her right. “It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I’d bargained for,” she added.

On the other hand, Jennifer Lopez is said to replace Degeneres’ position of being one of the judges in American Idol. According to People Magazine, DeGeneres confirmed this rumor and quoted her in saying “It’s true, she’s excited about it.”American Idol

An insider in American Idol reported that the contract’s still in process. They are still “ironing contracts” and unless something goes wrong, Jennifer Lopez will have her judging stint in American Idol.
