Ellen DeGeneres's First Photo With Idol's Cast: Your Airbrushing's a Little Pitchy, Dawg
Though Ellen DeGeneres doesn't officially join Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, and Kara DioGuardi on American Idol's judging panel until February, the first photo of the talk show maven with the Idol cast was released today. The picture doesn't prove DeGeneres has ever actually met her new co-workers, though. Even better, it proves that -- apparently -- a good Photoshopper is harder to come by than Nikki McKibbon's latest single.
Yow! Not only is Simon Cowell now a regular Johnny Weissmuller when compared to the rest of his judging jungle, but Ellen is an albino clerk at Kinko's. Come now, she's a winsome lady. Something went wrong in the iMac here. And is Kara DioGuardi sporting a blazer-cut top with skinny jeans? Is this a tribute to or mockery of Paula Abdul's famous "Forever Your Girl" wardrobe? Clever tricks, DioGuardi. Hopefully when this group actually meets, everyone is civil and a less trippy.
