Ellen DeGeneres says Cowell is not as she believed to be

Lately, Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi (KEHR’-uh dee-oh-GWAR’-dee) and many other guest judges kicked off the ninth season of the Fox singing competition in January.

Moreover, Ellen DeGeneres , the newest judge, begins her stint Tuesday night.

It seems that Ellen describes Cowell in a video posted on the show’s web site as “actually meaner than I thought. It’s hard to listen to him tell people things and for me not to go, `You poor thing!'”

The show host, DeGeneres said that no one has given her advice on judging :”they’re just letting me do what I want to do.”
