Ellen DeGeneres is leaving American Idol. In a statement on her website, Ellen said:  "A couple months ago, I let FOX and the "American Idol" producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn't leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on "Idol" and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be. According to reports, Kara D. was let go from the show as well, leaving only Randy Jackson as the only one from the original to move forward to next season.  Apparently, his two co-judges are set to be Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.
