Ellen DeGeneres Exiting American Idol; Is Jennifer Lopez Taking Her Place?


Ellen DeGeneres is out after just one season as a judge on American Idol, and Deadline reports that Jennifer Lopez may take her place.


Fox would not comment on the Lopez report, but did release a statement Thursday from DeGeneres, who replaced Paula Abdul after she left the show one year ago.


"A couple months ago, I let Fox and the American Idol producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me," DeGeneres said in a statement. "I told them I wouldn't leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next."
