Kara Watch: Our weekly eval of new ‘American Idol’ judge Kara DioGuardi


The “American Idol” judges shocked everyone during last week’s Wild Card episode by announcing the Top 13, the first time the competition has ever had more than 12 finalists.

But instead of debating the merits of Anoop Dogg or Jasmine “I’m Only 17” Murray, we’re evaluating new judge Kara DioGuardi, a New Rochelle native.

Here’s what we liked about Kara last week, and what we’re looking forward to from her as the contest resumes tonight.

LAST WEEK: Anoop Desai’s version of “My Prerogative” drove the crowd wild, and Kara enthusiastically told him that he made her want to “get up and dance.”

Thankfully, she didn’t – unlike Paula, who’s never met a number she couldn’t embarrass herself to. (And this is from a woman who’s a choreographer.) We much prefer Kara’s method of illustrating with words instead of actions.

THIS WEEK: Kara pitches, and boom, Simon hits it out of the park! These two made for a fantastic tag team during the critique of clinically insane Tatiana Del Toro.

When Kara noted with relief that Tatiana wasn’t crying – for once – Simon rolled his eyes and muttered, “She will.” Brilliant.
