Ellen on Simon: Trying Not to Take it Personally

1/11/2010 8:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ellen DeGeneres has a dog in the whole Simon Cowell fight -- after all, she signed on just months before Simon's big announcement that he's leaving "American Idol."

Ellen just taped her show today, and cleverly explained a possible link between Simon, Conan and Jay.

As we previously reported, Simon's voting himself off the show so he can work on "The X Factor."

Ok... FIRST OFF for the idiots on here, ELLEN hasn't been shown in the commercials because SHE JOINED AFTER the auditions... so dumbf*cks get it straight before you try and make a point. Secondly, Ellen is awesome, she might not be right for the show, but none of you idiots have given her a chance yet. It might be interesting. Thirdly X FACTOR is a lame variety show, like Americas Got Talent... LAME...Next point, American Idol is going downhill as it is because it has been on the air TOO LONG. It's time the show got cancelled anyways... For all of you people attacking Ellen, please look at yourselves in the mirror and see how pathetic you are. Ellen is a wonderful person who does wonderful things for millions of people. What have you done except be full of negativity... you should all be ashamed.

I could care less about what or who Ellen is. I remember who show back in the 90s. it was funny. She knows how to make sitcoms work and she's a good comedien. Well credentialed to be a judge on "SO you think You're funny", but as a musical talent jusdge... I don't think so. I agree with #49, this show has run it's course.

Although, X-Factor... Simon and Paula make a good team....
