American Idol fires Kara DioGuardi

It looks like American Idol is hell bent on trimming down its judge panel.

Moments after Ellen DeGeneres announced her resignation from the reality TV show, Idol judge Kara DioGuardi is said to be fired from the program.

Celebrity news source TMZ.com releases the latest Idol bombshell as its management decides to revert back to the old 3-man judge panel. TMZ reports that negotiations are being done to have Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith join Randy Jackson in the judges’ seat.

DioGuardi is said to have a chance to come back on Idol, only if J.Lo fails to do a good job.
