Despite only being a judge for one season, Ellen was one of my favorites.

Sure, Simon Cowell was my all-time favorite, With his snide comments... But Ellen was just so... nice!

She told CNN, "It was hard for me to judge people." See, she's not nasty like Simon!

She also talked about some of the drama that happens behind the scenes. "Some of them (The Singers) are not as grateful as you would expect. All of a sudden they have fan mail, millions of people saying they're great, and some of them just stop appreciating it."

Hey, if they ever need another super nice judge on Idol, I recommend Betty White!
