This might be great news for some and bad news for others, but it's been confirmed:
Kara DioGuardi will be back for season nine of American Idol. A source told E! News:
"Her deal is done. There are no ifs, ands or buts. Done. She will be back."
No word yet on the dollar amount associated with the contract, but DioGuardi is set to start shooting a new round of American Idol auditions in the next week or so.
Are you glad she's back?
