Ellen DeGeneres, pictured here with wife Portia de Rossi, had the shortest stint on the show. The funny gal who signed on for only one season obviously provided witty comic relief to the show, but also surprised people with constructive criticism and praise alike. Ellen ultimately left because she has other work to take care of, but said of her experience on the show, "I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on Idol and I am very grateful for the year I had, I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be."
