"American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest is tweeting about a conversation he had with Kara DioGuardi, who announced last week that she's leaving the show.
"Just hung up w @kara_dioguardi. She writes sick songs and said to tell u guys hi," Seacrest wrote Wednesday.
DioGuardi opened up about her exit from the show last Friday, explaining, "I felt like I won the lottery when I joined 'American Idol' two years ago, but I feel like now is the best time to leave 'Idol.'"
