DeGeneres scored the fourth judge's seat "American Idol" as a replacement for singer Paula Abdul. But DeGeneres left after only one season. While some fans enjoyed her quips, others critized DeGeneres' lack of experience in the music business. DeGeneres said she "didn't feel like the right fit"... Michael Becker / AP
