Which Judge Should Idol Keep: Kara or Paula?

Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson are both in for the next season of American Idol. But will either of this year's female judges be back to join them at the table? Newest judge Kara DioGuardi doesn't have a contract yet for season nine, nor does Paula Abdul, whose manager recently said he doesn't expect she'll return to the show.

Now, this isn't necessarily a Kara vs. Paula situation. There's no reason they couldn't both come back. But let's pretend for a moment that Idol wants to go back to three judges, and only one of the ladies can make the cut. Which judge would you pick?

Definitely neither, and dump Seacrest too.

I don't really think either of the women are that great, but I prefer Paula over Kara. Paula is lovably wacky, but she obviously cares about the contestants and gives some good advice. Kara always talks too much and has no idea what she is saying, especially when she criticized Danny for picking "Dream On" and saying that he should've picked an "early" Aerosmith song like "Crazy" or "Cryin." Uhh...

Where is the neither button? These two make people not want to watch the show. Paula is off a little in the head and doesn't pay attention. And Kara always want to show people that she can sing better than them. Who wants to hear her do anything. They both need to go.

Kara taught us so, so the fact that "Dream On" is apparantly not early Aerosmith.

They should keep Paula, she is crazy but the show wouldn't be the same without her. I can't stand Kara and they should get rid of her.

Paula, and her antics, are part of the iconography of the show. it wouldn't be as good without her.

i think that they should just stick with Paula - she's been there from the beginning and she's one of the key points to seeing the show. i didn't watch this season, and i feel like this year wasn't really any better with a new judge.

What the hell does Kara add besides "I don't know what kind of artist you are?"

The longer Kara was on the show, the more she was drinking out of the coke cup of booze.

I really liked what Kara brought, well sometimes. She is someone in the know in the biz and I think she was a nice addition. But I say keep Paula. She's the original and it wouldnt be the same without her

Paula for two reaons: she is the original, but also because the other two know their stuff, she is there for comedic effect and because she's sweet to the contestants. kara is a good addition, i enjoyed her, but not at the expense of paula.
