American Idol is experiencing quite the shake up.

First, Paula Abdul told the press that she wouldn't return as a judge for the show's ninth season. Then, it was announced that hilarious talk show favorite Ellen DeGeneres would take her place.

Now, AOL Inside TV reports that Simon Cowell, the sharp-tongued, tell-it-like-it-is judge, has plans to follow in Paula's footsteps and leave the show after this season. Whoa!

How do you feel about that? One change we're definitely welcoming this season is seeing Joe Jonas serve as a guest judge on an upcoming episode. At the Dallas auditions, he listened to Idol hopefuls sing their hearts out and cast his vote on whether or not he felt they had the chops to make it in Hollywood. Watch Joe in action January 26 on Fox.

In the meantime, go here to find out what last season's American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert told JSYK about guest-starring on Glee. %Poll-39109%
