Demonstrating that there are no hard feelings, exiting American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres is returning to Fox for an appearance on tonight’s season finale of the network’s reality series So You Think You Can Dance, which hails from Idol creator/executive producer Simon Fuller, returning Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe as well as Fuller’s 19 Entertainment. DeGeneres, who was in the middle of a two-year deal as Idol judge, asked to be released in June and her wish was eventually granted last month. On SYTYCD, DeGeneres will perform with tWitch Boss.
