'American Idol' judge Ellen DeGeneres starting her own record label

By Christopher Rocchio, 05/26/2010 

Ellen DeGeneres is following in fellow American Idol judge Randy Jackson's footsteps.

DeGeneres announced that she is starting her own record label after discovering Greyson Chance, a 12-year-old from Edmond, OK, via her "Wonderful Web of Wonderment" Internet talent search.

"He inspired me to start a record label called eleveneleven," said DeGeneres during Wednesday's broadcast of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"He is my first artist and we are making a record together."

Chance also performed "Broken Hearts" -- a song he wrote and composed -- during the broadcast. He received the $10,000 grand prize for winning the talent search and was also gifted a new piano from Yamaha.

DeGeneres will continue to use her talk show as a platform to find new artists for the label, which she launched in collaboration with Telepictures Productions, USA Today reported.

Earlier this month, Jackson started a dance-music label named DreamMerchant21 and signed former American Idol second-season finalist Kimberly Locke as its first artist.
