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?
