Last night, Fox announced that Ellen DeGeneres had dropped out of American Idol. However, they haven't said a word about today's reports that fellow judge, Kara DioGuardi, is getting the axe. With Randy Jackson as the only remaining judge, what's next for America's most watched TV show?
Don't worry, dawg. The show is coming back. It's still a massive cash cow. So instead of scrapping the whole thing, it sounds like Fox is planning to fill those empty slots with some very famous faces.
According to TMZ, the show will go back to its three-judge format, with Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler rounding out the panel.
Are we excited? Have other butts you'd rather see in those seats? Fox has yet to confirm the additions, so sound off with your selections below.
American Idol is scheduled to return in January 2011 on Fox.
