No stranger to the entertainment business, DeGeneres will offer her own unique perspective to the contestants throughout the competition. “I'm thrilled to be the new judge on American Idol”, explains DeGeneres. “I've watched since the beginning, and I've always been a huge fan.”
Creator and executive producer, Simon Fuller, is equally thrilled. "I could not be more excited to have Ellen join the American Idol family. Ellen has been a fan of the show for many years, and her love of music and understanding of the American public will bring a unique human touch to our judging panel.”
Last year, the humble singer-songwriter Kris Allen beat out glam rocker Adam Lambert to be crowned the Idol’ winner. Who will take home the coveted title this year? Don’t miss the all-new season of warblers and wannabes when American Idol returns to STAR WORLD.
