Paula Abdul

Twenty-four hours after Ellen DeGeneres announced that she'd be filling in the fourth judging spot on American Idol, Paula Abdul commended the talk show host her favorite way: on Twitter.

Abdul originally used Twitter to announce her exit from Idol this summer. "I think Ellen will b a gr8 judge on Idol," Abdul wrote. "She is wildly funny, talented and I wish her the best of luck!"

Are you glad Abdul is being generous to DeGeneres?
