‘Idol’ Reject Hopes To Bust A Move With Ellen DeGeneres

STAUTON, Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol cast- off Colton Berry wants nothing more than to boogie with daytime diva Ellen DeGeneres.

Berry – who was voted off Idol last Thursday (Feb. 21) – joked several times on the show about how he looks like Ellen, and says he’d love to make a guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Berry says his friends and family have always told him he resembles the vivacious talk show host, and one day, he finally took note that they were right.

He says, “I looked in the mirror and realized, ‘Hmmm. Maybe I do look like her.’ So I now I embrace it.”

And DeGeneres may be embracing her “mini-me” right back.

After Berry made the comments about his resemblance to Ellen on camera, he heard that Ellen called Idol host Ryan Seacrest and laughed with him about the whole thing.

So, if Ellen wants to book Berry for her show, all she has to do is call – and put on her dancing shoes.

He adds, “I’d definitely dance with her during the show!”
