A bunch of news centering on American Idol coming out lately, with Ellen leaving the show being the first confirmed news:
Other items on the rumor mill:
1. Kara DioGuardi is said to not be returning either. The show will probably go back to the three judge format as many feel the four panel judge is
2. Jennifer Lopez is rumored to be close to joining Idol, taking Kara's place.
3. Randy Jackson has one more year in his contract to do, and it looks like he will possibly stay. Some rumors claim a clean slate of judges.
4. Nigel Lythgoe is rumored to come back to the show as a producer. This is leading to talk of him replacing Simon. He also has SYTYCD, so he might
just stick to producing the show.
Monday might be a day of announcements, and we will see if anything does pan out.
