AceShowbiz - Paula Abdul channeled Ellen DeGeneres while hosting VH1 Divas Live concert on Thursday, September 17 night. The former "American Idol" judge wore a short blonde wig, dressed in masculine outfit and did a dance like Ellen. "Why are you all staring at me? Can't a girl try out for a new job?" she joked.
Paula even had a chair similar to the one Ellen has on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show". After sitting down, she said "All kidding aside, [I have] nothing but love for Ellen, and I wish you the best of luck and congratulations on your new gig." One note that she left for Ellen was "And call me! You gotta call me if you have any Simon [Cowell] problems, 'cause you know, I know him best."
The Ellen parody was not the only "American Idol" reference on the show. Paula also impersonated the singing show's host Ryan Seacrest by opening the concert with "I'm Paula Abdul, and this is not American Idol!". Also, during her performance of "Opposites Attract", a photo of Simon was flashed on the giant screen behind her.
Ellen has apparently watched the show and wrote on her Twitter, "Paula- you're hilarious. You've left me some big shoes to fill...unfortunately I don't wear high heels. Nothing but love for you too."
