I told myself that I would stop watching Americal Idol the moment Paula Abdul stepped out of the door. Unfortunately, I broke my promise but not regularly followed the season. I was still watching the show every now and then because of Ellen DeGeneres. She is just the funniest judge American Idol has ever had. She neutralizes tension amongst the other three judges.
Well, according to sources, she is leaving next season. Her decision was not an easy task but she had to come to the point where she needed to work her schedule out.
I will miss her on the next Idol season and the seasons to follow. I may just as well not watch. It's just not fun anymore.
