While hosting VH1's Divas Live on Thursday, Abdul boogied down the aisle of the Brooklyn Academy of Music dressed as DeGeneres, who is replacing Abdul on American Idol.
Wearing a short blonde wig, black pantsuit and sneakers, Abdul did her best Ellen-esque dance taking a seat on a stage set that mimicked the look of DeGeneres' daytime talk show.
"Why are you all staring at me? Can't a girl try out a new job?" Abdul joked. Kidding aside, the 47-year-old host took a moment to wish the daytime diva all the best.
"[I have] nothing but love for Ellen, and I wish you the best of luck and congratulations on your new gig. And call me! You got to call me if you have any Simon problems, because, you know, I know him best."
