A former American Idol contestant clams the show is rigged.
We cannot confirm or deny this accusation, but we can report the following series-related news:
Kara DioGuardi is coming back to the judges' table.
Following weeks of rumors and questions about her status, a source told E! News that DioGuardi is on board for season nine.
"Her deal is done. There are no ifs, ands or buts," the insider said. "Done. She will be back."
Does the return of DioGuardi make you happy or sad?
Perhaps a look back at her most memorable, bare-skinned moment on American Idol last season will sway your opinion in one direction or the other...
