So we’ll see what happens.Hopefully they’ll keep me on.” Fellow judge Simon Cowell seemed equally unsure of DioGuardi’s fate, telling TV Guide Magazine, “I would imagine[she will be back], but the only say I have is about Ryan, Randy and Paula. I’ve alwaysmade it clear that I wouldn’t like to do the show without them. Sothat’s all I’m really concerned about.”
