Wednesday’s ‘American Idol’ featured not one but two guest judges keeping Ellen DeGeneres’ seat warm.

Neil Patrick Harris took to it like a fish to water, riffing with Ryan Seacrest, ‘clashing’ with Simon Cowell (or so the editors would have you believe) and delivering pointed encouragement and criticism to aspiring contestants.

Joe Jonas was no slouch either, once he got over an initial fear that he would hurt the performers’ feelings.


Between the two, who’d you prefer? Clickah clickah below, and let us know. Results will be reported to our Office of Absolutely Accurate Online Statistics.
