, the newest judge of American Idol (for a few more weeks anyway), and the topic of much scepticism, made an announcement tonight on her Twitter account that will make many fans sad, and others who are not fans cheer for joy.

Ellen DeGeneres took to Twitter to announce her departure from American Idol.

“Dim the lights … I’ve voted myself off American Idol.”

Ellen DeGeneres claims she came to her decision, “a couple months ago” — and admits, “It was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings.”

She concludes, “I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.”

Her fans loved her on the show.  Critics hated her claiming she had no expertise and no reason to be a judge on American Idol.  What do you think?  Are you sorry to see her go?
