Ellen DeGeneres, who never got soothe able effective young sing ers to go back to their day jobs, has suddenly quit as a judge on "American Idol."
"A couple of months ago, I let Fox and the 'American Idol' producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me," she said last night in a statement.
"It was a hard verdict to make, but my work schedule became more than I'd bargained for."
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez poised to take DeGeneris' place, according to multiple reports.
People magazine quoted an insider saying, "It's true, she's excited about it."
