I would be surprised if she would be a judge as well though - surely the X-factor would need to differentiate itself from Idol and by having Simon and Paula as judges it would seem like the same show again even with the differences that the x-factor has.

They may get her in as a choreographer I guess.

No I don't need to shout and I am not. But I do like the large print, as it is easier for me to read.
Not knowing anything about X Factor, I think it may be quite interesting to watch. I will give it a go once it is here. In any event, I really believe AI will not make it and I am not one of Ellen's fans. OMO

If you're not using FireFox you should be...then you can enlarge the text for your eyes only.

PS Black font would be nice too.

Ellen said something on her show yesterday about Simon leaving, something about how he won't be there for her first day?

Is she planning on doing her talk show as well? or is she going to end that first?

Idol is on Saturday nights here, so I will have to wait to see episode 1. Good night for it. No classes and time to kill.

Does anyone remember William Hung who sang She Bangs a few years ago on A.I? He was dreadful but became quite a celeb in his own way and managed to get the song recorded.
