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


Allison Iraheta finished in fourth place on “American Idol” last week, making the show’s Top Three an all-boys club.

We, however, kept closer watch on fourth judge Kara DioGuardi, who grew up in New Rochelle. Here’s what we observed about Kara last week, and what we hope she improves upon as the contest continues tonight.

Does Kara’s pop culture knowledge only go back to 1990? Seriously, the woman is in her late thirties and supposedly a top-notch music producer.

So how on earth does she think that the songs “Cryin’” and “Crazy” are “early” Aerosmith? Does she not remember those Alicia Silverstone videos? Does she not know the band’s been around since the ’70s?

And how exactly does a Led Zeppelin standard remind her of Nine Inch Nails?

Sheesh. Someone needs some schooling in rock history.


I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again: Adam Lambert makes Kara stupid. And her latest critique may be the chart-topper.

Watching her shriek “Yes! Yes!” after Adam’s performance was uncomfortably reminiscent of Meg Ryan’s famous deli scene in “When Harry Met Sally.” We can only pray that she gets over herself — and him — before the season finale. (Oh, please, we all know Adam will be in the finals.)

Otherwise, Kara’s head might actually explode.
