Are you excited for Ellen’s big Idol debut this Tuesday?

The wait is almost over! Feb. 9 marks the beginning of Hollywood Week on American Idol, and with it comes the long-awaited arrival of the show’s new fourth judge, Ellen DeGeneres! Yes, the seemingly endless parade of guest judges (Katy Perry, Victoria Beckham and Neil Patrick Harris were our favorites) has ended, and now Ellen has a permanent seat at the table. Rumors are swirling about a feud between Ellen and reigning King Judge Simon Cowell, and we can’t wait to see sparks fly!

As you can see in the video, Idol hopefuls are already fawning over the daytime queen — but how do you feel? Are you excited for Ellen to sit at the table, or do you think she’s an unnecessary addition?

I loved Ellen and will miss her. She added so much to the judges panel. I loved her kindness above all.

It is so obvious the dislike between Ellen and that other “broad”. Ellen has her beat out in every way.

Her humor will lighten Simon’s grouchy mood????????????????????????? I beg your pardon. This is not a comedy competition. This is serious business for those who come in hopes their dreams come true. Why should there be a clown judging who know nothing of music except to listen to it? Paula, Randy, Simon are pro’s in the music business and even though I do not like Kara, at least she is in the music game and somewhat knowledgeable.
