This is a tough call!
So, we all know what happened - Paula Abdul's contract for American Idol wasn't renewed due to salary disputes... but it seems like the creators were actually angling for Ellen DeGeneres to replace her the whole time!
And on the one hand, everybody loves Ellen, the former stand-up turned talk show host. She might not have a musical background, but she certainly is sweet!
But what about poor Paula? She's half the reason people like watching the show! Who's gonna act all gushy slash spaced out now???
So, naughty or nice?
