    Paula Abdul will be wishing a Wealthy Nigerian Bomber auditions (bad joke, okay but this is bottom-feeding Queerty according to closeted orthodox Jewish politicians in Brooklyn!) I’m only watching because of Ellen…like YOU!

    I still can’t stand Kara DioGuardi. I’m gonna miss Paula.

  • SteamPunk

    Does something look odd about Simon’s upper body to you? Maybe his arms are out of proportion or something?

    Each person here looks…weird. Like their pictures weren’t taken in the same place, same time, or even by the same photographer. Noisy Bitch and Ellen both look so washed out compared to Randy, Simon, and the 40 Year Old Rentboy.

    Looks like some bad photoshop cutting and pasting to me. They don’t even look like they’re standing on the same floor.

    Even if I was in the USA and had the option of watching, my urge to avoid watching Cowell will always overcome my enjoyment of watching DeGeneres.

    Sorry, Ellen.

    As much money as that show makes…they should have been able to afford a proper photo shoot. No interest in watching this show ever

    It IS bad Photoshop. Couldn’t they actually get them in a room at once? Just awful. Simon should fire somebody.

    Kara is the devil. If there was any doubt that I was gay before, it was only reinforced when she announced last year that “its like studio 57 in here”.

    Wow. That’s really bad photoshopping. I’m sure it was challenging tho. I know, I would’ve hated to work on that if the tones are all different.

    I’m almost 100% sure that they messed with Simon’s arms and that’s why it looks weird. Just like the tones don’t match from person to person.

    thats the second worst professional photoshop shoot ive evre seen.
    queerty , are u sure this isnt just some ‘fake’ pic some teenager made? :S i do graphic design (starting to) and im still only learnign the basics of photoshop but crikey i could do better than that…

    If you saw the pics of Simon barechested on a wave runner
    while he was on holiday your photoshop questions would be
    answered! you would also know why I have christined him with a new moniker:

    Simon Jowels……… : P (but I do love that snarky bastard)

    And look how pretty Miss Ryan Seacrest is!!

  • dontblamemeivotedforhillary

    Dump Randy Jackson – he has a limited vocabulary and replace him with Debbie Allen or L.A Reid. BTW – I like Kara (followed by 400 vitriolic pro-Paula posts….)

    Ellen looks like a cardboard cut-out in that shot.
