Okay, as much as I love Ellen, I was a bit skeptical when they announced she'd be taking Paula Abdul's place on American Idol. After all, does she even have a music backgroud?


But after watching her judging debut last night, I have to say, she fits right in.

Unfortunately for the contestants, she was no sweet, comforting Paula. Though, I was always annoyed when Paula sugar-coated everything. That's showbiz, baby. You suck, get over it. I felt Ellen was highly-needed breath of fresh air for the show.

See what other entertainment sites had to say on Us Weekly's website.
