Kara DioGuardi to join American Idol

American Idol" is to add a new feature to its panel of judges, a songwriter who is a self-confessed "feisty" "straight-shooter". She is obviously keen to find a winner who she says, “Must be unique”.

I confess I’ve not heard of her, but then again, I don’t suppose she’s heard of me either, so neither of us should be amazed. Kara, take note, I write.

The Grammy-nominated pop composer, Kara DioGuardi, will be sitting alongside Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson, for the eighth season of America’s most popular TV show.

The addition of Kara is the biggest amendment to the series since it took the tentative steps into prime time on the Fox network in 2002.

Apparently, Kara DioGuardi has written and produced songs for several artists, counting amongst them, Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera, and past winners Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.

Well good for Kara! Let’s hope she brings a little common sense to the program… Let’s face it she won’t have to do much to achieve it. Fellow judge, Paula is a beautiful woman who speaks a lot but says little. She could waffle for the U.S. - Randy Jackson talks more sense but in such dated clich├ęs, he sounds ridiculous.

Simon Cowell alone, stands coherent and logical. Okay, sometimes he’s a tad scathing, but never without reason. Idiots shouldn’t put themselves into a position to be ‘scathed’. His comments are clean and clinical. No overspeak, no trying to ingratiate himself to all-and-sundry.
I love the program. I'm addicted.
