Here Comes the Judge

As Sarah pointed out yesterday, American Idol just hired a new judge: Me. Haha, kidding. I don't know a cowbell from a triangle... Actually, it's Grammy-nominated songwriter Kara DioGuardi. According to the AI website, the original plans for the show called for four judges, rather than the three we've all come to love (or hate, as the case may be ;)

My guess is it's more than that. We know the show can survive on three judges, but what if one of them leaves? It's probably a good idea to get audiences used to a new face, so if the time comes and someone drops, it'll be an easier transition. Don't you think?

In other American Idol news, David A's first cd, Crush, is about to be released. David Cook's cd is supposed to be released soon...I hope!

Anyway, auditions have already begun (not sure if they're over yet), so another season--#8--will be here before we know it. With all the homework the kids already have this year, and more writing deadlines for me--oy vey--will we be getting any sleep at all?

That's a smart move on the producers' part. I've never heard of this new judge, but she's got to have more substantive comments than Paula, right?

Maybe they are preparing for Paula to leave?
