What will happen with ‘Idol’?

News broke over the weekend that American Idol was probably losing two more judges: Ellen Degeneres resigned, and it is rumored that Kara DioGuardi‘s contract won’t be renewed. Simon Cowell previously announced he wouldn’t be returning for the next season. The Los Angeles’ Times Ann Powers commented on the situation on the newspaper’s Show Tracker blog.
