Is Kara DioGuardi Turning Into Paula Abdul on ‘American Idol’?

Kara, but it seems like you’re totally trying to fill Paula’s stilettos this season. We love you as you are – just be yourself!

Have you noticed some eerie resemblances between Kara DioGuardi and recently departed judge Paula Abdul on American Idol this season? We have!

For starters, despite a rocky relationship with the cantankerous Simon Cowell last year, Kara, 39, seems to be Simon’s new bestie! The two – who sit next to one another now that Ellen DeGeneres switched seats – jostle each other, joke around and flirt like nobody’s business. We practically expect to see Kara pass Simon, 50, a note reading: ‘Do you like me? Check yes or no.’

In fact, their relationship is so altered that host Ryan Seacrest has made comments two days in a row this week! “Why are you so close to each other this year?” Ryan, 35, asked last night, March 10. Kara responded, “He’s leaning on me. I feel like it’s separation anxiety, maybe because you’re not with your fiancée.’

But besides an onscreen love affair with Paula’s best friend Simon, there are more indications that the singer-songwriter is morphing into American Idol’s ex ‘nice’ judge. Paula, 47, always acted highly emotional on the show – and last night, Kara even cried during ‘Big’ Mike Lynch’s performance of “This Woman’s Work.”

Additionally, Paula is notorious for flirting with the contestants – and who can forget how Kara practically undresses 27-year-old rocker Casey James with her eyes, and talks about her “crush” on him non-stop?

But is Kara’s metamorphosis deliberate in a bid to be better accepted by Idol fans, or do you think she really just wants to fill the void that Paula left?

Yes she is turning into Paula becasue she is starting to have a fake tan and her color hair. She is even trying to flirt with Simon and she is all over him. Kara should be herself and stop trying to be like Paula because she never will be Paula there is only one.
