Kara DioGuardi: I'm Only Here For One Season

The big question on American Idol, besides who’s going to win, is will Kara DioGuardi be back next season?

According to her, her time is up on the show. She tells TV Guide, "I'm only here for one season. That's what we've discussed. So we'll see what happens. Hopefully they'll keep me on."

It’s been a little strange to have four judges this season, and has been a little overkill when it comes time to critique performances.

Kara says, "I feel grateful to America that they let me grow and they let me find my groove on the show and that they were patient. And hopefully I haven't disappointed them. It's been a scary experience at times.”

Simon spoke with TV Guide and told them he thought Kara would be back next season. He said, “The only say I have is about Ryan, Randy and Paula. I’ve always made it clear that I wouldn’t like to do the show without them. So that’s all I’m really concerned about.”

Simon sure doesn’t sugarcoat things! Would you like to see Kara back next season?
