Today, July 30, will forever be known as D-Day in “American Idol” land. I’m reeling, trying to make sense of what the heck happened in the last 24 hours that has very likely demolished my favorite guilty pleasure competition show. Can things ever be the same again? I fear not. After the jump, the demise of “Idol” as we know it, play by bloody play. Keep reading »

“It probably saved my job. It was a defining moment. Like, ‘She’s serious and industry, but also as kooky as everyone else on this panel.’ I mean, what crazy nut is gonna go out there in a bikini at almost 40 years of age against a girl who is 20 and probably cosmetically enhanced? I looked a little pasty. But hey, at least I didn’t wet myself!”
—”American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi in the April issue of Women’s Health talking about putting on a bikini and doing a duet with “Bikini Girl” last season. Yeah, it would’ve been totally awkward if she’d wet herself. Ew. [People] Keep reading »
Poor, poor Paula Abdul. Her time with “American Idol” has been over for barely 24 hours and the media could not wait to move on. The big announcement that Posh Spice will be making a guest-judge appearance is completely overshadowing the sadness of the Abdul-“Idol” split. I can’t help but give into the media frenzy and be super excited about Posh’s appearance, since it’s going to be totally awesome. Alas, it’s only temporary—for a single show. So I wonder, Who are they going to replace Paula with permanently? I guess there’s the chance that the judging panel will shrink down to three with Kara DioGuardi being the only lady in the pack. But I want someone new! Here’s who I think would make snug fits on the “American Idol” season nine judging panel. Keep reading »
“American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi appeared on “The View” today, and she was asked about runner-up Adam Lambert’s sexuality.

However, the contestant never discussed his sexual preferences publicly. On “The View,” Kara said, “I don’t think Adam was ever in [the closet]. I think he was always openly out.” Keep reading »
You may have noticed something different about the “American Idol” premiere last night. No, they didn’t get rid of the talentless attention-whores, er, I mean competitors. But they did add something to the mix–a fourth judge by the name of Kara DioGuardi. Although I absolutely detest this show, I couldn’t help but wonder about her qualifications for judging the next idol because I had never heard of her before. Now I realize she might be the most qualified judge on the panel. Keep reading »
