When ';American Idol' Season 9 runner-up, Crystal Bowersox heard the news of Ellen's departure from the show after just one season she had nothing but kind words to say to the judge of just one season.
"Ellen is an amazing and kind human being, and I respect her and her decision to leave ';American Idol'," she tells MTV News. "She brought a smile to the show and so much more, and I am very happy to have been a part of her time there. I wish nothing but the best for her, and also to ';American Idol'."
She had no comments about her possible replacements or the possibility of Kara Dioguardi leaving as well.
Way to be supportive!
