Ellen DeGeneres leaving American Idol

Ellen DeGeneres is leaving American Idol after one season as judge. Ellen joined the cast last season and signed a two-year deal.

In a statement, Ellen says she “let FOX and the AMERICAN IDOL producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” adding, “I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next.”
