From twitter: Dim the lights...I've voted myself off American Idol. This was just posted on her website. http://ellen.warnerbros.com/2010/07/ellen_degeneres_american_idol_news_0729.php#comments 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?
