Do you know this woman? You Will...

In a little bit of breaking news I have a question for you all. Has anyone ever heard of Kara DioGuardi ?? I suppose very few have. However you soon will know exactly who she is because she is joining American Idol. To tell you the truth I had no idea who she was until I read this. It seems that Ms. DioGuardi has been tabbed to "save" AI from whatever it lacked last season that made it lose so many viewers. (I guess they didn't like my idea that the reason the show sucked was David Archuletta) She is joining the judging panel. No Paula Abdul isn't getting sacked. (even though that prospect seemed good to me) There will be four judges starting next season. Randy, Paula, Simon, and Kara.
What is your take AI fans? What do you think? Is this a change that is needed? I will tell you my take. I think they are paving the way to get rid of Paula altogether. Tell me what you think?

"For the past seven seasons, Paula has had to endure the experience of being the only woman at the judges' table," said Mike Darnell, president, alternative programming of Fox, in a statement.

"With Kara by her side, Paula has some backup and now there is going to be a lot more 'girl power' on the show," Darnell said.


I am not sure that more "girl power" is what American Idol needs.

slow news day?

Are you shitting me? I can't stand listening to the blibble blabble that Randy and Paula spew forth and now we are going to have to listen to another judge. They really only need Simon. If they feel the need for this new judge then shitcan Paula. Maybe if we left her outside the studio long enough, she'd step infront of a moving bus or car... If we must keep Randy then fine him everytime he says "dude" and "dog" maybe at least then I could listen to him without feeling the need to either reach for a drink or go commode hugging.

I very rarely watch American Idol. I do like the idea that people are choosing rather than record executives who they are going to hear on the radio, but then it becomes more of a popularity contest rather than talent.

I listened to Clay Aiken's christmas cd and it sucked. What has happened with Taylor Hicks and Fantasia?

As for more "Girl Power" - don't they consider Paula to be either drunk, crazy, or a combo?

Doc said...

LOL @ Lu !!

Hey there Chickie - Nice to see you over here... I must check out your blog!

I don't even watch AI, but have been wondering from tabloids alone how much more time Paula had left...not much, apparently! I think you are right.

Jay said...

I have no idea who this chick is, but I doubt it will make much of a difference. Unless he's super hot and wears low cut dresses. Then it will help. ;-)

They have to have an odd number of judges, otherwise there will be ties when the judges vote. So I guess they will have to add one more judge. Sounds like they missed this ...

The Mountain Cat said...

Kara DioGuardi?? I never heard of her. But with a name like that, I am love with her already.

Knight said...

I think this show sucks ass. To liven it up they could try firing everyone and starting a whole new show with different everything.

Doc said...

Tell us how you really feel Knight LOL !!

Dana said...

What is your take AI fans?

Isn't that an oxymoron???

Bina said...

I have to agree with Lu'. Just get someone who spits it out already (well, you know, tells it like it is) and stop all the other bull crap. And what about ties? I mean, those three argue and many times it's 2 - 1, so now what?

Karen said...

I love AI and I agree that last season pretty much sucked. I don't want a new judge though. The balance is good with Randy, Paula and Simon. I don't know what the new chicky is going too add.

Doc said...

I don't think the "ties" thing is a big worry. They have guest judges in during the beginning rounds all teh time and all it takes is two "yeses" to get through to Hollywood... as far as from there the producers NOT Randy and Paula make the decisions of who makes the Top 24... Nigel Lithgoe has the final word.

Lu' said...

I was going to mention something about DWTS, but I'll bop over to aaaaPie to do that :)

Sassy Mama Bear said...

Fresh blood is definitely needed, but you have to take into account that Head Producer Nigel Lythgoe also left AI, so you have new producer and a new judge, it might be what the show needs...personally I would like to see Randy & Paula ousted from the show.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Paula won't get ousted as long as she's fucking the big man. Yes, the season sucked b/c of David A. Otherwise it was as usual.

I don't like it anymore!! and Paula Is enough we don't need anyone else!!

I am SICK OF ALMOST ALL OF THE REALITY T.V. Hell if they want a real show they need to come hang out with my clumsy azz!! Eff AI

Leighann said...

I don't really give a flip about AI anymore. They let so much trash through just for the shock value that all it does is piss me off. The novelty of it has worn off.

Know what Micky said...

I don't know her,
I don't want to know her,
Won't get me to care to know her.
I know you know what I mean?

LOL at Lu!

jennifer said...

I agree with Lu and Leighann - the thrill is gone.

BUT, Paula has had it all to herself. Might be interesting to see how she reacts to a younger woman on the scene.

Something tells me it would involve alcohol and then you would have rubber neckers sydrome on AI. Maybe that is the idea... to increase viewership due to folks watching the train wreck.
