American Idol with Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres will become 50 years old next year and age is only making her more skilled and popular. She is not only a great actress but also a great host too. She was the host of 79th Academy Awards (2007). She will be your host in this week’s episode of American Idol.

Actress Achieves reported:

Every Wednesday, someone gets kicked off of American Idol and this week's results show will be very different. As sixth place is decided between Phil Stacey, Lakisha Jones, Chris Richardson, Melinda Doolittle, Jordin Sparks, and Blake Lewis, America will be giving back to relief programs for children and young people in extreme poverty. The show, hosted by Ellen DeGenerers will include performances from not just the Idol stage, but from the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Ryan Seacrest will still take hosting gigs on the American Idol stage with Ellen DeGeneres on the other one. "Idol Gives Back" will air on Fox tomorrow night from 8-10pm.

Bono will actually meet with Phil Stacey, Lakisha Jones, Chris Richardson, Melinda Doolittle, Jordin Sparks, and Blake Lewis and discuss the work of ONE: The Campaign to Make Poverty History and ask the audience to help. The contestants from American Idol 6 will even sing a song written for the event by Bono and Dave Stewart (of the Eurythmics) about the AIDS crisis in Africa called "American Prayer."

The show will take place after few hours. Ellen DeGeneres is a great host and I am happy that someone will overshadow Simon Cowell at least for a week in American Idol.
