Don’t worry, Kara DioGuardi, you'll possibly find something else!

PerezHilton.com has confirmed that DioGuardi has been canned, and it also looks like the show will be reverting to its three judge format.

Sources say that if all goes according to plan, the judges will be Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler.

If they’re not going to contact us about one of those judge positions, at least we can find solace in the fact that DioGuardi is out of the picture as well.

    HA, that is a big laugh that you confirmed this. You are late with this one as usual.



  2. 2

    I'm tempted to watch again if Jennifer Lopez is a judge. We haven't watched since Paula left.



  3. 3

    Idol is dead.
    I think they should let it finish with a little bit of dignity and just put it out of it's misery.



  4. 4

    ok….so since you are saying PerezHilton.com has confirmed it, does that mean you actually called the show to verify the information. We won't see an "oops" message later today retracting this post? Copying and pasting content from other web sites does not actually confirm the validity of a statement.

    The show is going to fucking suck regardless. It'll be worse now. Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson?!?!?! They should have kept Kara and Ellen for one more season or at least got someone worthwhile on the panel. Victoria Beckham would have been a better choice, Sharon Osbourne if she was available. What about Tommy Mottola? Now I am not saying the other judges don't have merit, but they are just gonna suck on this show. Can't wait for X Factor U.S. though, it will bury this shit and piss on its grave :D



  6. 6

    Kara was awful anyway! I think AI has run it's course and should be cancelled



  7. 7

    Ah that sucks. She knows a lot about music.



  8. 8

    I'm surprised she did more than that one season. You're so full of shit Perez. You didn't get picked but at least you can find comfort in someone else's loss. What a idiot. You weren't even in the running.



  9. 9

    yep, late again. I learned this last nite. Plus God knows the show will absolutely fail if you ever become a judge. They are looking to improve ratings, not commit suicide.



  10. 10

    What was wrong with Kara? I liked her. They obviously want a whole new format because they realize Titanic III is sinking….



  11. 11

    I expected her to quit, not them to fire her. wow.



  12. 12

    Good call



  13. 13

    perez, you were never in the picture lol



  14. 14

    Will we have to look at Tylers face or can he wear a bag or something?



  15. 15

    Yikes! JeLo and Steven Tyler??? Yikes!



  16. 16

    THEY DONT WANT YOU DIPSHIT…..THEY DONT WANT YOU WRECKING THE SHOW WITH THE BULLSHIT YOU PULLED ON CARRIE PREJEAN…THE GAYS DONT EVEN WANT YOU,YOU SET THE MOVEMENT BACK 100 YEARS BECAUSE YOU CANT BE UNBIASED..YR LIKE ”THAT GUY” THAT EVERYONE CANT STAND TO BE AROUND BECAUSE YOU FUCK THINGS UP AND ARE TOO FUCKING DENSE TO REALIZE THEYRE LAUGHING ”AT YOU” NOT ”WITH YOU”…..GET OVER IT AND JUST KEEP DRAWING CUMSHOTS ON TEENAGER PICS AND KISSING GAGAS HOMELY MORPHIDITE ASS…



  17. 17

    OMG, actual industry professionals as judges! I might actually watch a season.



  18. 18

    Stick a fork in AI…done! Steven Tyler, no offense but the youth who watch the show won't know WHO he is! Secondly, he's HARD to look at….Yikes! J-LO? We want PEREZ AND BRIT-BRIT!!



  19. 19

    Now now, gloating over another's misfortune - vintage Perez!



  20. 20

    What! Jennifer Lopez cant even carry a tune, her voice is horrid. How will she ever feel comfortable telling talent that they suck? one way is she can say "Don't worry they will make you sound good"



  21. 21

    What a white trash show. That and DWTS, fucking trash!



  22. 22

    Someone give Swedish Beauty a Depends so she doesn't piss herself.

    Back to the topic . . .

    Yay that they are keeping Randy. He was my favorite. The others I could care less about losing. Kara was friggin' annoying as shit, so good riddance.

    All the new additions? I don't see how they are the least bit entertaining and Perez would have definitely been more fun to watch. I have no idea what they are thinking. Ugh.



  23. 23

    That's probably the best thing AI has done in the past two years. I'd check in to see Lopez and Tyler … if Tyler can stay straight.



  24. 24

    I guess Idol HAS to keep Randy as his contract is still valid BUT I wish "dog" would quit. He is too pitchy!!! Show in toilet



  25. 25

    No big loss here, she wasn't a very dynamic judge. JLo would be great- I can tell she has a mean streak. Plus she has the major star power. I liked Ellen but you could tell she wasn't really into it and it wasn't a good fit. She always seemed a tad out of her element. And Perez, love you, but you aren't right for AI either. Keep doing what you are doing in blogging and music.



  26. 26

    thank you finally she's out. it's about time she leaves. I hope the next judge won't be a bitch like her or else the show will suck for sure.



  27. 27

    paula gone, simon gone, ellen gone, kara gone. randy was my least favourite.
    PEREZ HON STOP FARTING AROUND AND DROPPING HINTS AND CONTACT AMERICAN IDOL IF YOU WANT IT SO BAD!!!



  28. 28

    I'm not surprised about her being fired. To me she never really had anything constructive to say that someone else hadn't already said.

    As far as the new judges…really? Don't get me wrong, I love Aerosmith and Steven Tyler but not sure about him being a judge. And JLo? WTH? She can't even sing.

    I guess at least they didn't pic Perez…that would have just dug the grave from 5 to 12 feet….one of those holes you can't ever get out of.



  29. 29

    I MIGHT actually prefer Perez over J Lo and Steven Tyler, and I can't believe I am actually saying that.



  30. 30

    Steven Tyler would be AMAZING to replace Simon… I don't like Jennifer Lopez… blah…. She's annoying.



  31. 31

    If Kara was let go, she is lucky. Time to get off the sinking ship. And, no one wants to watch Tyler. Get some younger people!!



  32. 32

    wow! only randy jackson is left!?!? I might not watch the season anymore



  33. 33

    Lol literally just fired and already on such a low income she has to make her dresses out of papier maché judging from this photo



  34. 34

    The sad thing is that douchbag Perez actually thought he was in the running for a spot on Idol. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa
    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa



  35. 35

    FINALLY!!! I stopped watching when Paula left and they hired this no-talent skank. Buh-Bye…



  36. 36

    Dayummm…D= Wow!!!



  37. 37

    steven tyler ?!?!?????
    talk about tired, washed up and will certainly be the last nail in the show's coffin.
    Idol is truly scraping the bottom of the barrel.
    BTW Swedish Beauty, there are lots of other web sites you can comment on if this one is beneath your up to the second hipness.



  38. 38

    Good riddance. The only word that ever came out of her judge-mouth was 'marketable', and the song she wrote for Idol was shitaceous.
    How marketable does she think she is now?

    Two down with Ellen gone, one to go. Are you hearing the tickticktick, Randy?
    Shania Twain, Chris Isaac, Adam Lambert, and Cowel to come back: dreamteam.



  39. 39

    Kara was such a non talent and extremely boring to watch and to listen to. How she ever got on the show in the first place is still a mystery. She helped drag that show down with her boring comments and self importance attitude.



  40. 40

    I liked Kara. Randy meanwhile… He's useless



  41. 41

    idol's screwed… first they got rid of paula, now simon left, and they FIRED kara? yep goodbye american idol



  42. 42

    So she is a very successful music producer. No one want to sit next to the talentless JLo.



  43. 43

    Jennifer Lopez SUCKS!



  44. 44

    I wished the entire damn show would go away.



  45. 45

    I don't watch AI, but come on…JLO?? really??? She has no talent. Not that it takes "real talent" to become a famous singer anymore, but still.
    JLO is LAME!

  46. @v@ says – reply to this


    46

    They dump the seasoned songwriter for the star power. Big surprise. Welcome to Hollyweird, and it was a quick buck while she was in it. She's likely better off.

  47. @v@ says – reply to this


    47

    I can't think of one J-Lo tune that I ever bought. She was looks and
    spin machine, but her singing was average at best. Her dancing was good.



  48. 48

    Actually this is good.. I might watch a couple of episodes to see if it's worth it.. J-lo has experience being a pop slut so she could give some good advice to the girls.. And Steven Tyler is an incredible singer so he definetly has credibility to say "you were pitchy" unlike Paula Abdul



  49. 49

    you'll possibly find something else? kara dioguardi is an incredibly talented songwriter who has written a ton of hit songs…i'm sure she'll be fine…



  50. 50

    i never liked her, she always tried to be like simon and it made her just look like a bitch. but she should be happy she is off the sinking ship that is american idol. this show is gonna tank without simon.



  51. 51

    Whoa.. yay!



  52. 52

    Honestly, she was one of the best judges they had. She actually knew about the music business and more than anything, music. She's an absolutely amazing song writer and half the songs you hear on the radio, she wrote. If you knew anything about music, you'd already know that.



  53. 53

    STEVEN TYLER? Damn, maybe I'll start to watch this show!!!



  54. 54

    GET THE FUCK OUT, you long-winded hack!



  55. 55

    she dresses like that and wonders why shes going?



  56. 56

    WOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOO!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSS



  57. 57

    kara gave being slutty a whole new meaning she was nothing but trashy NO class there at all! glad she is gone ,it would be great for jlo to be a judge worth watching again but steve tyler hmmmmm i think they could do MUCH better why not brett michaels or gene simmons,i could think of 100s more suited then steve tyler.



  58. 58

    No way to Steven Tyler..that washed up dish rag belongs in the kitchen sink next to the skanky pot scraper. I'm thinking…mmmm…Gene Simmons of KISS fame would be a much better choice. He's nasty like an 80 year old retiree poopy pants with that snarly bitch attitude of his that would surely make those snotty nosed brats cry when he rips them to shreds like a garbage disposal. Just the thought of him being a judge is making me Helga Skank practically pee my sequined thong from laughter. Excuse me a moment while I indulge…. ROTFLMAO! oops anyone got a Bounty Towel to mop up my mess???
