One of Ellen's dearest friends has taken the "American Idol" series by storm, adding just the right amount of humor, feedback, and "dramatic exits" to the judge's table. HARRY CONNICK, JR. is in the house to update Ellen on his latest casting decisions as the show goes live – perhaps he'll even hash out the casting-off of Jessica Bassett. This will be Harry and Ellen’s first meeting since he nixed Jessica, and Ellen publicly championed the young talent, featuring Jessica on her own show! Who will have the final word? Plus, considering Ellen and Harry go together like cats and dogs, it's always fun having the talented singer around to play!
Then, with an engagement and new hit television series adding to her glow, GABRIELLE UNION is here! She's rocking the world on her BET show "Being Mary Jane," and being Gabrielle is equally awesome. The beautiful actress and model has been sizzling on the screen in films like "Think Like a Man," "Bad Boys II" and "Good Deeds." Gabrielle's own hoop dreams came true last year when longtime boyfriend (now fiancé!) and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade put a ring on her finger. She'll give Ellen the latest when she returns!
In her first interview since returning home to the USA following her win in Sochi, Olympic Slopestyle Gold Medalist JAMIE ANDERSON is here! The American snowboarder showed off her supreme skills when Slopestyle made its Olympics debut this year, and Jamie will bring her championship spirit when she gives Ellen the official replay!
This Tuesday, Ellen will be the judge of it all!
