Reports are surfacing that Kara DioGuardi’s American Idol contract was not renewed.
Kara is on a yearly contract with the show, and reports are coming out, that her contract has not been renewed. With the departure of Simon Cowell, Ellen Degeneres and this news, that leaves the judges’ panel at 1. Randy Jackson.
Rumors surfaced back in May, that there was going to be a shake-up on the panel and that nobody was safe. The only person safe on American Idol is Ryan Seacrest.
Several sources are saying the show will go back to 3 judges and the new panel will consist of Randy Jackson, [lastfm]Jennifer Lopez[/lastfm], and Steven Tyler of [lastfm]Aerosmith[/lastfm].
I guess we’ll see if this is all true, when an official announcement is released. This information has come from MANY different sources, so we’ll see if they’re all right.
