ellen degeneres idol simon cowell 'American Idol's' Ellen DeGeneres: 'Hollywood is a disgusting town.'“American Idol” kicks off Hollywood Week Tuesday, Feb. 9. Check out Ellen DeGeneres dispensing advice.

We love Ellen’s words of wisdom — “You should put some shoes on. It’s filthy here. Hollywood is a disgusting town.”

We think if Ellen can find the balance between humor and actual advice/criticism, she is going to be a fabulous judge.

We’re always excited for Hollywood Week because it’s got so much wailing and gnashing of teeth and moldering carnage and drama and tears! But we’re even doubly excited this year to see Ellen as a judge. How about you?
