Kara Watch: Our weekly eval of new ‘American Idol’ judge Kara DioGuardi
“American Idol” revealed a new rule last week: The judges are now allowed to save one singer rejected by call-in voters. However, they chose not to rescue Jasmine Murray or Jorge Nunez, who both got the boot.
Here’s what annoyed us about Kara last week — and what we hope she improves upon as the competition heats up tonight.
LAST WEEK: Everyone was happy to see Scott MacIntyre back at the piano, but his version of Michael Jackson’s obscure “Keep the Faith” was completely cheesy. Kara admitted that it wasn’t the most “dynamic” performance, but said he was inspiring.
How much longer can she repeat that?
Yes, it’s terrific that Scott hasn’t let his visual impairment hold him back, but this is still a singing competition. And he needs to start stepping up his game like everyone else.
Kara should offer some hard-nosed advice, instead of continued praise.
THIS WEEK: Please, Kara, could you at least pretend to discuss the fate of the rejected contestant performing in front of you?
You and Paula sang along with Jorge as Randy and Simon whispered behind your backs. Did the two guys even ask for the ladies’ opinion before pronouncing Jorge’s sentence?
