Although there have been rumors that Kara DioGuardi, American Idol’s fourth judge, might not be returning to the show next season, Simon Cowell has told Ellen DeGeneres that “everyone’s going to be back.” On Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cowell said that the addition of DioGuardi was initially “awkward,” but that her presence ultimately improved the program. Fox had no comment for EW on whether all of the judges would be returning next year.
