Those of you who keep a watchful eye on News That Really Matters probably are reeling from the announcement that “American Idol” will add a fourth judge to the show. Songwriter Kara DioGuardi (yes, THAT Kara DioGuardi) will join Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson on the judges’ panel.
A Fox network honcho noted that “now there is going to be a lot more ‘girl power’ on the show.”
Yeah, “Idol” was always a little too manly for my tastes.
If you’re wondering about DioGuardi’s credentials, be assured that her songs have been performed by some of the top talent in the music business, including Paris Hilton, Pussycat Dolls, Ashlee Simpson and Hilary Duff. (That’s like the Mount Rushmore of Rock ‘n’ Roll, isn’t it?)
For those of you who don’t watch “Idol,” the cartoon above probably makes no sense. It might make no sense to those of you who DO watch “Idol.” But that’s OK. None of the judges on “Idol” make any sense either. And it makes even less sense that I spent so many hours watching last season’s “Idol.” At least I got a cartoon out of it.
