Ellen DeGeneres who is a comedian and hosts her own talk show explained her decision given below:

“A couple months ago, I let FOX and the “American Idol” producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on “Idol” and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.”

    It sucks that Jennifer Lopez couldn’t get to American Idol. It would happen to be amazing if she could have gotten there. Effectively perhaps she can get there subsequent season.
