Wow. Fox has just announced that Ellen Degeneres is now the permanent 4th judge on American Idol and is replacing Paula Abdul.

Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, what's her face and Ellen. Wow.

Ellen will be a judge for the next 5 years. Ellen has already released a statement:

“I’m thrilled to be the new judge on AMERICAN IDOL,” said DeGeneres. ”I’ve watched since the beginning, and I’ve always been a huge fan. So getting this job is a dream come true, and think of all the money I’ll save from not having to text in my vote.”

I had no idea they were even considering Ellen.  What do you all think of this move?-Dr.FB
