Ellen watched the show and was shocked by one of the results. Do you agree with the judges?

Hey Ellen! My husband and I soooooo agree with you about Jessica Bassett's talent. We were stunned when Harry and Keith didn't agree with Jennifer. Big mistake, but maybe you inviting her to the show is what was supposed to happen all along.

You rock Ellen!

I completely agree with you Ellen! I too was shocked at the judges decision. As soon as I heard Jessica's voice I was drawn to it and you are so wonderful to invite her to your show. Can't wait to see her again.

It's so sad that American Idol doesn't get it right all the time. It's so nice that you are giving Jessica Bassett a second chance. My daughter Jessica Kartalis didn't make it through to Hollywood last year (Season 12) & it would have been so nice for someone to let her redeem herself & show the Nation that she can sing & can play the guitar. So you go Jessica Bassett for all the Jessica's out there that deserve a second shot!!! Maybe you can do a "You got it wrong 2 years in a row American Idol Show" hmmm.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bC8vrXXlCRE

I am really upset. Jessica's voice is beautiful. When I look at how many average people they let go through to Hollywood, it makes no sense that Keith and Harry sent Jessica home. I really believe that had she had a lot of makeup and outgoing personality, she would have been put through. What a shame!

I agree! I was "WHAT" so glad you are bringing her on to your show! Also, I want to submit a clip to Ellen, sorry I posted it her but did not know where to submit it. It is great and we have to donate to his bail out fund! It is a great idea and I thought it was very funny!

I'm so so so glad you brought this up! I was floored they didn't send her through. I heard her voice and stopped what I was doing to look up and watch. I would totally buy her music. You can get her back in. Your Ellen! You can do it! I don't usually feel so strong about something but this was a great injustice!!!

I totally agree with you Ellen. I was so shocked when Jessica Bassett wasn't chosen as well. I protested to my husband when he came in the room. Jennifer had it right and even though I love Keith and Harry they were both wrong. Amber Riley did not even make it through the screeners on American Idol before she started on Glee and look where she is now. It is crazy that they let some really bad people through (probably for ratings) but many others don't even make it to the judges. I look forward to hearing Jessica Bassett on your show and pray the best for her future career. Please help her.

Just watched today's episode and I want Ellen to know that I screamed at the tv too when Jessica Bassett wasn't chosen to go further on Idol. I am so glad Ellen did this.

Sounds freakish and I know that she knows by now but I actually Facebook stalked Jessica and sent her a note just in case she did not hear Ellen (which is probably insane since she probably did within like a millisecond).

Anyhoo, Ellen, thanks for doing this. I would totally buy this girl's album. She is magic.

Huge Mistake... It's funny while that song was playing I was trying to SoundHound the song and who sang it but didn't realize until later that it was Jessica. I never heard that song before so if it happened to be an original I would buy it in a heartbeat, if she was covering it, I wouldn't buy it until she recorded it. I can't wait to see her on your show!

Cheers,

Baillie

My reaction was the same. The judges were wrong. Jessica should have received a gold ticket, however, she may receive her just awards through you and your generous ways. Landing a performance on your show could be the hidden blessing. Thanks for believing in people!
