If you hadn't already heard, yesterday comedian and talk-show host Ellen Degeneres was named the new, 4th permanent judge on American Idol, replacing Paula Abdul.
Ellen announced this news on her talk show Wednesday.
Ellen appeared as a guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance earlier this summer. Personally, I wasn't impressed with her performance as a judge on that show, but then again, that was her first attempt at the gig.
Do you think Ellen will work as a replacement for Abdul?
