Reports: Kara DioGuardi out at 'Idol,' Carrie Underwood says she doesn't know who's in
Kara DioGuardi has reportedly been fired from "American Idol," according to a TMZ source, with a reprieve possible only if a rumored deal with Jennifer Lopez falls through. This right after Ellen DeGeneres announced her departure.
Lopez was the big name reported Thursday, though that's still unconfirmed, as is the rumor that Steven Tyler of Aerosmith would be pulling up a chair. Too bad the Howard Stern rumors are so old -- he has long dark hair too.
Meanwhile, Season 4 "Idol" champ Carrie Underwood put in her two cents' worth after performing on "Today" on Friday morning. Said the newlywed: "Everybody's like, 'Do you know anything?' I'm like, 'I know what you know. I have nothing.'" She knows nothing except, when it comes to "Idol," "You never know what's going to happen."
