The ‘American Idol’ Judges, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

In an exclusive appearance, JENNIFER LOPEZ, HARRY CONNICK, JR., and KEITH URBAN are here to celebrate the latest season of "American Idol!" This will be the only show where all will be interviewed together! The competition series has become the preeminent platform for unknown talent to find their voice. These superstar judges not only shine a light on the stage, but also stir the pot of emotion and excitement as they lead the country in selecting the next superstar. Keith was the only judge returning from the previous season, while Jennifer is, of course, an “Idol” vet. Harry, the jazziest man on the block, served his first season as a judge, after appearing as a mentor in Season 12. On the show, these three dynamic leaders bicker, laugh and cause a riot, so imagine the insanity when they all sit down with Ellen! Secrets could be spilled! Funny will undoubtedly ensue!

Then, a seasoned artist will bare her soul when SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS perform! They'll be singing sweet melodies and funkadelic rhythms from their album, "Give the People What They Want." The American soul & funk group has led a movement to keep the roots of ‘60s and ‘70s soul alive, forging a path from past to present with their bold and timeless work. Incorporating brass and beats with socially conscious expression, Sharon and her band have carried out the legacy of their idol James Brown… with albums like "Naturally," "100 Days, 100 Nights" and "Soul Time!" Ellen loves to dance, and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings will be leading her groove!

On Thursday, Ellen admires the idols!

Dear Ellen,
I love your show, I have being watching you since I moved to the States in 2006 coming from Haiti. I start Learning English on your show, I remembered how I used to laugh at your jokes when I did not understand the language. Well now I am in college and a part time worker, since I work on the day during your show air; every night after work at midnight I rewatched it online on my laptop, but it keeps freezing every five seconds. Anyway, since I know that you are Hosting the Oscars; in one of your episodes I saw that you sent Andy to go around and gave five seconnds to give you and advise for the show. Well my advise is Make sure to restate Ashton Kutcher quotes because I believe it is very inspiring and will continue to inspire many people's life just like it starts for mine.His quote at Teen Choice Awards about“The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful. And being generous. Everything else is crap!” "Be Smart and Be Sexy" since you love to dance and so do I, don't forget to say "Make sure You dance, Be kind to one another". Have a great show and I will be watching after work.

Hi, regarding the firefighters not being able to receive the trips,
why not give the tickets to their wives, they are not public employees?

Just a thought..

Secondary to the music, what is of Idol importance is if Keith is going to intrigue viewers with his "T-shirt du jour". HIs problem solving and distractible visual aside which tempts we viewers to identify each mystery shirt's source.
