The 'American Idol' judges, including Ellen DeGeneres, join Ryan Seacrest for a night with Springfield's bartender Moe.
The current line-up of "American Idol" judges turn yellow for a guest appearance on "The Simpsons". Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi, Ellen DeGeneres and Simon Cowell are all animated for the May 23 finale of the FOX series.
In the episode aptly titled "Judge Me Tender", Springfield's beloved bartender Moe Syzslak will get a chance to offer some criticisms alongside the judges. "Idol" host Ryan Seacrest is also appearing in the episode in his clean white suit.
"The Simpsons" has surpassed "Gunsmoke" to be the longest-running TV show in America. FOX is expected to announce whether the animation will get another season in the May presentation.
Meanwhile, the upcoming episode called "American History X-cellent" will see a rowdy crowd at Mr. Burns' estate. With Mr. Burns gone, Smithers takes charge of the power plant. But when employees take advantage of his good nature, he exacts revenge by forcing the employees to work night and day. These unfair working conditions prompt Homer and his crew to devise a plan to bust out Mr. Burns.
