    I never thought I'd see this happening, but American Idol has actually found a better replacement for Abdul.

    She's a great comedienne but is she qualified to judge a singing competition?icon_confused.gif

    Her presence will certainly throw the ratings through the roof.

    Can you imagine how she would be if Simon tries to make a dumb joke or acts stupid? She'll look at him with those big blues, give a funny face sign like "this man's crazy," then probably come up with a hilarious retort. Yeah, yeah, OK Simon.

    No she doesn't need a suffix because she's a woman.

    According to the dictionary, that's right.

    Well then the dictionary was made by a woman, and that's just not right now is it. Or maybe it is. I think we should add special suffixes to distinguish between white and black people while we're at it, and to distinguish between Christians and Jews...man I hate Jews. If only it was like "The Jewmedian is on tonight," then I could be like, "Oh god I'm totally not going then."

    For Ellen I might watch Idol through for the first time ever. I'll bet her comments would be spot-on and very witty.

    I bet she'll cry too, especially when contestants do well. I know there have been a couple of times when I stood their bawling when a performer really showed their passion. It's like the nation stands still for a moment all in awe.

    Like this moment:

    It's not like Paula Abdul was of any importance, in terms of judging.

    Simon - antagonist
    Randy - protagonist
    Paula - neutral opinions, dishes out the sympathy comments, mumble mumble

    I think Ellen will have a similar role also. Except, she'll be more entertaining and more coherent than Paula. icon_lol.gif

    What an interesting choice. She's so sweet. How will she be able to tell the terrible performers that they stink ? Well, I guess she'll be good at letting them down easily.

    So we dont have waitresses anymore? No more oscar for best actress? Do we just say congressperson now? I think the point is that these are not suffixes that have been added, they have always existed. Just look at french, italian or spanish.

    Who really cares about judging....I think it's pretty much a freak parade and a team of network executives has decided who will win based on who's most likley to watch to the end and be hypnotised into drinking more Coca-Cola


    That said what I really want to see and maybe will consider actually watching.... Is Ellen turn the whole thing into the Joke that is and possible take Simon Cowell down a couple of ego notchs and/or mess up his pretty face in a vicious lesbian cat fight.

    Who is the Paul Abdul you guys keep referencing? I've heard of Paula Abdul, but not Paul. Is Paul her cousin, or brother?

    Bust seriously, folks, I always thought American Idol was a huge joke. This news only confirms it for me.
