Next January, American Idol will return back to TV for its incredible eighth season! But this year, there are going to be a few changes to the show. With auditions about to begin in a matter of days, Ryan Seacrest has released word that American Idol will be getting another judge to join Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. She is award winning songwriter and producer Kara DioGuardi.

Kara has done may work for many previous Idols including Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. She also has worked with the hit makers Britney Spears, Hilary Duff, Gwen Stefani, among many others. Reactions so far have been mixed, and Paula released a statement saying she doesn't know how the audience will be accepting her. American Idol resumes in January 2009 on FOX.
