Oh Paula! Is poking fun at Ellen REALLY the smartest move right now? Sure it was funny for the first 10 seconds, but then we felt kinda sorry for you, and we'd love to know what your American Idol replacement thinks of this whole stunt! Then again, it sure is a great way to stay relevant!

Paula Abdul hosted and opened VH1 Divas last night, and even though Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson and Sheryl Crow took the stage, it was Paula's impression of Ellen DeGeneres that stole the show. It's all about Paula, right?

After dancing her way up onto the stage and plopping down in a chair, Paula quickly said, "All kidding aside, nothing but love Ellen and I wish you the best of luck, and congratulations on your new gig," but we really have to wonder if she means it. Paula added, "And call me....you gotta call me if you have any Simon problems, because I know him best!" Aww cute, but you know what we really want to see? Ellen's impression of Paula! Think she'd ever go there?

Anyway, the new generation of divas took the stage last night night, and in addition to J Hud, Miley, Sheryl and Kelly, Cyndi Lauper, Liza Minnelli, Leona Lewis, Adele, Jordin Sparks and India.Arie also appeared. Jennifer sang a duet with music legend Stevie Wonder, who she calls her “childhood hero," and all of the ladies appeared to be having a great time onstage at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
