If the rumors are true, Kara DioGuardi will be joining Ellen DeGeneres as she leaves Fox’s hit show, American Idol.

TMZ.com reported that DioGuardi will not be joining the American Idol judge panel and will only be reconsidered if the Jennifer Lopez deal does not push through.

DeGeneres, 52, however, will be leaving on her own accord after telling Idol producers that the  job “didn’t feel like the right fit” and will skip out on her 4-year contract.

“I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings,” she said.

Two of the American Idol original judges, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell, have already left to pursue other projects while Randy Jackson will remain with 2 new possible judges.
