Worst: Ellen DeGeneres
Initially, Ellen seemed like a fantastic choice to fill Paula Abdul’s chair on “American Idol.” Funny, sharp, outspoken – she could be the perfect foil to cantankerous Simon. However, it quickly became apparent that, for all of her talents, Ellen was not cut out to be a judge. She was visibly uncomfortable criticizing contestants she liked, and seemed to have little chemistry with her fellow judges. Ultimately, her fleeting one-liners weren’t enough to keep her afloat. She bowed out after just one year, claiming the job at “Idol” “didn't feel like the right fit for me." Hello, understatement! - Xfinity Entertainment Staff
