wanda sykes ellen degeneres Ellen DeGeneres welcomes Wanda Sykes, 'American Idol's' Jason CastroFresh off some excellent jokes on “Idol Gives Back,” Wanda Sykes joins “American Idol” judge Ellen DeGeneres on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

Sykes compliments DeGeneres on the great job she’s doing so far and then picks Crystal as her favorite. “She is something special … in a different class from everybody else.” Sykes also says that she too was helped by “humanitarian” Ryan Seacrest. She once stubbed her toe and was going to quit show business but he talked her down. Heh heh.

After Wanda’s segment, “American Idol” Season 7 finalist Jason Castro took the stage to perform his new single “That’s What I’m Here For” off his self-titled debut album that hit stores April 13. Watch below.
