According to People magazine, "American Idol" will welcome back judge Kara DioGuardi next season.

DioGuardi joined Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell on the judge's panel last season, and there's been speculation whether she would return for another. In May, DioGuardi discussed her possible return by saying, "I'm only here for one season. That's what we've discussed. So we'll see what happens."

It's still unknown whether Paula Abdul will be returning.
