Perhaps by now you have heard about Ellen leaving American Idol over your morning cup of joe. she powed out gracefully citing that she wasn't the "fit" for the judges table. OK, fair enough; but now the internet is ablaze with rumors that not only is Ellen gone, but the entire judging panel. A Reuters news report suggests that Idol executives are excercising the "nuclear option" to save the show's ratings decline and the serious threat of Simon Cowell's new X Factor show, which wil start in the fall of 2011.

To be honest, noone really knows for sure right now what the hell is going on; the sheer number of rumors and names being dropped is downright incredible. Reading the Google news right now for "American Idol," I could have sworn I saw my computer monitor start to smoke. Twitter crashed on the news last night. Here is a round up of what is out there right now:

Ellen De Generes- She tweeted this message: "Dim the lights...I've voted myself off." To thwart rumors that she had fired, Ryan Seacrest insisted on his radio show that Ellen left Idol on her own accord. She says she never felt right critiquing the contestants.

Kara DioGuardi - Has been let go by Idol mid-contract. There is a very small possibility that she will stay if negotiations fall through for her replacement. Who is her replacement? Read on.

Jennifer Lopez - Yes, J-Lo will be your next Idol judge according to CNN. They report she has indeed inked a deal to be judge. As for further exploration of what this means for the show, we will all need some time to digest this. Although, this I can say with confidence; male viewership will go through the roof.

Randy Jackson - Well, so far he is safe, although at least one news outlet is suggesting that Idol execs will make a clean sweep. Good luck dawg.Steven Tyler: He could be Idols Next Judge

Steven Tyler - TMZ reports that the Aerosmith frontman is poised to make an announcement on Monday when Fox producers give their annual press conference to t.v. journalists for a fall preview.

P. Diddy & Jessica Simpson - They have both been rumored to be in talks with Idol, but no confirmations on any deals yet. Besides, most news outlets are reporting that Idol will go back to a three judge panel, so unless Randy or JLo or Tyler are out, they may be left out in the cold.

Ryan Seacrest - Will never be left out in the cold.
