Kris Allen Is Pulling for Ellen DeGeneres

Count Kris Allen among the people who have confidence in Ellen DeGeneres’ ability to fill Paula Abdul’s judging shoes on American Idol.

The Idol winner tells PopEater that he has every reason to believe that the comedienne/talk-show host can rise to the occasion, noting,

“Ellen is a good fit for the show. She is going to do a great job. Everyone loves her. She’s so funny, but at the same time, she’s so warm and easy to talk to…Paula was that warm personality on the show. You were never scared of her or what she was going to say. I don’t think any one is going to be scared of Ellen’s comments either. She is going to give a good listeners’ perspective.”

Now if only she can manage to keep Simon Cowell’s mean streak in check the way Paula did…
