Ellen was amazed by the brilliant performance of Jessica Bassett on this past season "American Idol," and was shocked when she didn't make it through! She brought her here for some redemption, and the talented singer didn't disappoint.

I am so glad you had her on your show. My husband and I said exactly what you said. She has a beautiful voice and it is such a pretty song. I could not believe they did not pick her. I even said to my husband maybe Ellen will see this and have her on the show. So thank you for being so kind and generous. Love your show.

Flabergasted by the two male judges on AI. Jennifer was absolutely correct. They let a good one go. Way to go Ellen, for recognizing talent! Jessica, you're awesome and I'm definately looking forward to your first album...

I have lost all faith in American Idol after this blunder! Jessica is the whole package! Awesome voice, obviously a talented song writer, beautiful, and can play guitar to boot! LOVED her song "Lydia" and will buy it as soon as I find it. I am having trouble with that, but will keep trying.

This girl is going to go FAR!!! And thanks to Ellen, she now has that chance!! Thank God Ellen had the brains to see what American Idol could not! J-Lo saw it, but was out-numbered. They let some people through who didn't really deserve to go to Hollywood, then dropped the ball big-time with Jessica Bassett! I hope they seewhat a HUGE mistake they made. WTH were they thinking???! I was outraged they did not put her through! What good is it to have deaf, dumb, and blind people judging a show like Idol?? Simon would not have made that mistake! No wonder their viewers are all deserting!

Anyway, I just thank God that Ellen gave her the shot she definately deserves! I know that she will be big! God bless you, Ellen! And to Jessica, I am so, SO sorry they did you that way on Idol! It was nuts! Those guys can't see past their big, conceited heads! Especially Harry! Thinks he's God's gift! What an ego!

Best wishes, and remember WE BELIEVE IN YOU.
