With Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey and others putting on such stellar eighth season performances on American Idol, the presence of new judge Kara DioGuardi has almost gone unnoticed.

In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine, the songwriter even admits this may be her only experience on the show.

“I’m only here for one season,” DioGuardi said. “That’s what we’ve discussed. So we’ll see what happens.”

Given the choice, Kara would stick around for awhile on Idol.

“My life has become extremely exciting and I am so excited for this opportunity. I feel grateful to America that they let me grow and they let me find my groove on the show and that they were patient. And hopefully I haven’t disappointed them. It’s been a scary experience at times.”

Do you wanna see DioGuardi as a judge beyond this season?
