    “On the spot: Rebekah Kantor, undeclared freshman”

    Do you watch “”American Idol””?

    No, I hate that show.

    OK, cool. Me too. But I’m sure you still know that Paula Abdul isn’t going to be a judge on the show anymore.

    Yeah, I did hear about that.

    Do you know who her replacement is going to be?

    Yeah, but don’t remember.

    It’s going to be Ellen DeGeneres.


    Do you know who Ellen is?

    Yeah, I like her.

    But tell me this, what business does she have being on “”American Idol””?


    That’s what I was saying. How can you go from a talk show host to being a judge for a show on musical talent?

    I don’t know. That doesn’t make sense to me.

    Who would you have picked besides Ellen?

    I don’t know, I really don’t care about that show.

    Paula was the likable one, Simon is the mean one and Randy is the cool one, so there needs to be somebody on there to balance it out. Who would you have picked to be on there to make you watch the show?

    (Pauses) Um, I don’t remember her name but she was in a movie called “”Honey.”” It’s kind of old. I mean, it’s not old old, but it came out, it seemed like, around middle school. (The lead actress in the movie “”Honey”” was Jessica Alba)

    OK, I’ll take your word for it. But do you think that maybe Paula should come back on the show and judge Ellen’s judging?

    That’d be kind of funny. (Laughs) Yeah, that’d be cool.
