In the wake of Ellen DeGeneres' "American Idol" departure, and Jennifer Lopez's likely addition to the judges' table, there are now murmurs that Kara DioGuardi is officially out of commission for Season 10.

TMZ reports that DioGuardi has been fired, and the series is returning to a three-judge panel. If producers' rumored plan goes through the appropriate contract signings, the three seats will be occupied by Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

FOX is reportedly making its official announcement on the series' future during their Summer Press Tour panel on Monday, August 2.

Zap2it has reached out to FOX for comment, and they have no comment at this time.
