Kara DioGuardi will be back for American Idol 9, according to a gossip columnists’ unsourced report that is being spread around as if it actually some kind of real confirmation rather than an unsourced gossip report. Perhaps on-the-record, real confirmation will come soon, but there has been none as of right now.
E! Online’s Marc Malkin reports quotes “a source” who says, “Her deal is done. There are no ifs, ands or buts. Done. She will be back.”
That’s not that big of a surprise: Some people still may hate on Kara, but she brought something to the show, elevating the other judges’ game (compare the judging seasons seven and eight for evidence), never mind that Simon Cowell said she’d be back and Ryan Seacrest confirmed that, too.
