New American Idol Judge Unveiled
Kara DioGuardi joins the panel of American dream-crushers
Kara DioGuardi has been introduced today as the new addition to the American Idol judging panel. Singer-songwriter DioGuardi joins judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul in the coming season of X Factors American cousin, which begins in January. DioGuardi gets her start today as contestants who passed the early auditions face the big judges for the first time. "I'm just somebody who's really honest and gives my opinion, said DioGuardi. If I feel I need to be hard with someone in order to get that across, I will." "And if I feel I need to be softer and more nurturing with the contestants, I'll do that. It all depends on the situation." Wow, she sounds exciting. And DioGuardi is no stranger to people that sing songs. Shes previously written hits for the likes of Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Pink, The Jonas Brothers, Britney Spears, and Hilary Duff. Meanwhile, Cheryl Cole is enjoying her position as the latest addition to the X Factor judging panel here in the UK. She replaced Sharon Osbourne who quit earlier this year.
