-And I’m sure this is exaggerated but gossip sites are working the Ellen hates Simon angle. Here’s another one from radaronline.com

EW was sweet enough to count how many words Joe Jonas uttered on last night’s Idol episode, which drew about 24.7 million viewers (up a bit from Tuesday but down about 8% from the same episode a year ago.).
The man said a whopping 40 words. Yes. 40. He was obviously completely utterly useless.
