Sir Elton John is weighing in on Jennifer Hudson's shocking ouster from American Idol last week, calling the whole thing "incredibly racist." John — who rubbed elbows with Hudson and Co. earlier this month as an AI special guest — says "the three people I was really impressed with, and they just happened to be black, young female singers, and they all seem to be landing in the bottom three." No word yet on what Eltie thought of Camile Velasco's ghastly cover of his "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," but I hear he's mulling a lawsuit.
