So, what’s the official rating on Idol’s new judge? Here’s some info about Kara, along with Simon’s take…

DioGuardi’s songs have been recorded by Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood and Pink, among others. Her recent Top 40 hits include Stefani’s “Rich Girl,” Clarkson’s “Walk Away” and Dion’s “Taking Chances.”

Fox announced DioGuardi’s new gig Monday morning.

“Kara has a good reputation of A, having hits; and B, having an opinion. And that’s a good combination,” Cowell said, adding, matter-of-factly: “And she’s cute.”

“You think I’m cute?” DioGuardi replied (as if she didn’t know it already). “Oh, good.” [Yahoo! News]

And the Wiki says…

Kara Elizabeth DioGuardi (born December 9, 1970) is an American songwriter, record producer, and singer who has contributed to a long list of internationally successful popular songs. She writes music of the light pop-rock genre. She will be a judge on the eighth season of American Idol. [Wiki]

Man, I hope this ruins the show, so it can finally be taken off TV.

Paula's not leaving. And Paula's drugged ramblings is one of the top reasons to watch.

Any way, this one's not bad for 37.

She's like an older, slightly less attractive Kat McPhee. That's not really a bad thing.

As I said on another post, if "Idol" fans like her, Paula Abdul's drunk ass will be out on the street.

Ummm I'm going to have to go with "Not"! I don't know why, I can't put my finger on it! That being said, I wouldn't kick her out of bed!

Oh no, they're disrupting the continuity of the show! She's not bad and she does resemble Kat McPhee.

Jeez...Get my eyes fixed and see how horrible everyone's skin really is. She has one really big zit and pores you could sink a Range Rover in.

Stay out of the sun people.
