american-idol-judges-ellen-kara-simon-randyAmerican Idol isn’t even on right now, but there’s more drama happening on the show than ever.

First, yesterday, Ellen DeGeneres quit, leaving halfway into what was originally supposed to be a two-year contract.  “It didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” she said in a statement, but the rumor is she never got along with Simon Cowell.  Of course, Simon’s leaving the show too, and is currently rumored to be replaced by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler.

But who’s taking Ellen’s place?  According to Deadline, Jennifer Lopez.

Finally, news broke just a few hours ago that fourth judge Kara Dioguardi was fired, and the show would return to a three-judge format.

So to recap: the judges will potentially be Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, and Jennifer Lopez.  Cool?
