From twitter: Dim the lights...I've voted myself off American Idol.

This was just posted on her website.

I know that most people here were not fans of her as a judge, but I did like her. It'll be interesting to see what they do now. Have they announced a replacement for Simon yet?

There's all kind of rumors going on....Elton John, Harry Connick, Jr., and the fact that all the judges will be replaced.

Well, she's right, she looked like she never fit in, was uncomfortable, actually just kind of snoring. It was so obvious that the others knew music and she did not. Sorry Ellen. Your show is good.

Ryan is probably the only person that's safe.

Monday is the big announcement. Apparently there may be an entire new judge panel. Rumors are that Kara doesn't have a contract and Randy wants out.

Don't forget also Bret Michaels, Jessica Simpsons ....

Can we say that AI has jumped the shark and just let it die after next season?

Can they cancel it now, much as we loved to hate Simon, I can't imagine the show without him.

Seems like an entire new judging panel is likely. Out of the names I've heard mentioned since it was announced last year that season 9 would be Simon Cowell's final season, I've been most favorable at the possibility of Harry Connick Jr. being named a judge. I can see Jessica Simpson filling the friendly judge role that Paula used to occupy. Not sure about the other judge (or two).

Harry Connick Jr appeals to me as a judge. Elton John, does he need the money that badly?

I wonder who have the judges have been on the road. A girl from my hometown has already auditioned and made it to Hollywood week. But there was nothing in the article in the local paper interview where she said the judges had been changed.

Don't shoot me, but I wasn't too impressed by Harry Connick Jr when he acted as a mentor last year. I don't deny his knowledge of music, but I found him rather self centred.

Woah, never saw this (http://www.deadline.com/2010/07/breaking-ellen-out-of-idol/) coming (if it's true). I have no idea if it is true, wait and see at this point.

Really? I thought he was being mentioned somewhat regularly as a possible judge because his appearance went over quite well with audiences.

I heard rumors of a Justin Timberlake? or was that just E! speculation?
