    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 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'm not surprised. Ellen always seemed very uncomfortable giving criticism to the singers.

    I think Neil Patrick Harris would be great, but I don't know if he would want to do it at this point in his career.

    Please fire Kara...Please fire Kara...




    I read a rumor that Courtney Love was in negotiations. If that happens, I'm watching just for the epic train-wreck.:lol:

    Totally would start watching again if Courtney love is on lolollollol. Jessica would be funny as well. Tired of Randy maybe paula could come back.

    Wow, J.Lo and Steven Tyler as new judges?
    Maybe

    That might actually be interesting....lmao. However, I think it does ultimately come down to the contestants. The contestants need to not suck for the show to be any good. Last season, nearly all of the contestants sucked.

    Ellen leaving was a good choice though.

    Not sad to hear this. Love Ellen, but not as an AI judge.

    I didn't read the article. Did she leave voluntarily? If so, good for her for knowing her own limitations.

    I enjoyed her comments sometimes..quite funny. But, I agree she didn't really belong here.

    I think Ellen made the right choice. I enjoy her outside of AI, but she just didn't work on the panel. I found her very bland.

    Even though I swore off AI after this season, if Courtney Love is one of the judges, I just may be sucked back into the 19Evil Vortex :rofl: .

    Jennifer Lopez, though? :yawn: :blah:

    The ought to bring in Ice-T - I can only imagine some of his critiques :lol: .

    I can't picture J. Lo as a judge. She barely moves her mouth when she talks.
