Greyson Chance recently spoke with Chrushable.com about Ellen DeGeneres’s departure from American Idol.
We reported back on July 30th about how Ellen DeGeneres stepped down from the American Idol stage as a judge after just one season. We highlighted several reasons that influenced the TV talk show host’s decision, but what does Greyson Chance think about it? On Thursday, Chance had the opportunity to speak with Crushable.com about the subject.
He told Crushable that American Idol wasn’t a good fit for Ellen because she is so busy and way too nice. Greyson stated, “I couldn’t judge people like that, and I can totally understand where she’s coming from… that’s Ellen.” Greyson added, “Her schedule for Idol was very busy… she was rushing everywhere”.
As we’ve said before, Ellen has dedicated herself to Greyson, his career and her new record label, ElevenEleven. The young singer realizes this; according to Greyson, Ellen has become a really good friend who is always there for him.
After taking about Ellen for a while, Greyson shifted gears and dished out some more information about his upcoming album which we now know is scheduled to be released in time for the holiday season. We already knew that Greyson would be covering Lady Gaga’s “Paperazzi” and Augustana’s “Fire”, but we learned that one of his new songs will be called “I’m Done”. Greyson told Crushable that this song isn’t about anyone in particular, “It’s someone I don’t know who makes me mad”.
In an unrelated topic, we also learned about one of Greyson’s favorite TV shows! Greyson revealed that if he had his way, he would be starring on “Glee”, a musical comedy-drama television series that airs on FOX.
