Default American Idol 9

I know I'm not into the Idol stuff like all of you, but I should still report news when I see it, and it looks like Kara DioGuardi, who was thought not to return for the next season, has signed on to return next season. This will no doubt throw the already in jeopardy contract of Paula Abdul into more uncertainty.

It'll be different, but at least they won't be messing with the format all year long (much to the show's detriment), and at least the criticism will now be two-thirds constructive, dawg. Besides, I have six words for you: Kara's proven she can fill Paula's crazy shoes just fine.

P.S.: Called it.

I think she got something wrong. It's not "I've decided not to return to #IDOL" it's they refused to offer me a contract because they had had enough of me.

Looks like all this might've been nothing more than a negotiation tactic.

*sigh*

In any case, auditions start tomorrow morning, so I guess we'll have our final answer then.

I find kinda weird that she'd decide to leave 2 days before the auditions begin, that's pretty late notice

I find it so odd that I am technically the starter for this thread, since I don't even watch the show.

I'm sure AI will remain the highest rated show on TV with or without Paula

Praise Jesus. As for Paula, it appears she's done.

I predict that the next season of American Idol will lose its status at the most-watched TV show in America and the ratings will fall as much as 33% from this past season
