DeGeneres will be joining Simon Cowell, Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson.

She wont be leaving her daytime show, as she said he will be working day and night as we are all doing of today's time.

"I don't know how it happened myself," she said. "I have not missed one episode of that show, I have watched every single thing, I love everything about it, and I love music, as you know."

"Hopefully I'm the people's point of view, because I'm just like you. I sit at home and I watch it...I'm not looking at it in a critical way, from the music producer's mind. I'm looking at it as a person who's going to buy the music, and who's going to relate to that person.
