As Conservatives we are not great fans of Ellen DeGeneres, but what do you think of her as a judge on the show? The talk was that she would be "too nice" and the show would miss having Simon on next year, but she seems to be extemely fair and is not afraid to level criticism. She has a standard for who makes it through and does not compromise.
After a couple of weak seasons, the talent has been incredible this year. Two people I am pulling for are still there.
