It’s official: Kara DioGuardi has been given the boot from American Idol. Nigel Lythgoe (the old guy from So You Think You Can Dance) has returned to American Idol as executive producer and didn’t see it fit to keep know-it-all DioGuardi around. I think it’s the best decision made in years! With Simon having left the show and Ellen deciding to leave of her own accord, Kara would’ve absolutely murdered the upcoming season with her drawling monologues and ridiculous pouting.
Clearly I’ve never been a Kara fan. In fact, I much preferred watching doped up Paula dance around like she was tripping on some hallucinogenic drugs while Simon repeatedly attempted to fondle her on the side. Last season I lost interest after the first round of auditions. Simon looked like a repressed, bored version of himself ever since being forced to work with Kara DioGuardi who pouts and pontificates like she’s the only one who knows best.
So who will make up the new panel of judges? There are rumors that the new panel might include Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, Jennifer Lopez, and possibly even Jessica Simpson. They will join lone original American Idol judge – old dawg Randy Jackson. It all sounds so ridiculous, I might just watch the next season. One thing’s for sure, I won’t be crying any tears over Kara’s departure – unless they’re tears of joy that is 😉
