Kara is definitely fan of the newest Idol judge…but are you?
We’ve all been waiting with bated breath to see how American Idol’s newest judge, Ellen DeGeneres, would do filling Paula Abdul’s recently vacated stilettos. Although the jury may still be out for many of you, at least fellow judge Kara DioGuardi is supporting the talk show host!
“I think she did great,” Kara, 39, told reporters Feb. 10 of Ellen’s Feb. 9 debut, adding, “[She] brings a sense of humor and knows more about music than you think.”
No one knows better than Kara just how nerve-wracking it is to be the new girl (she did come in late to the game last year after the show had been in existence for seven prior seasons, after all) but she likes how the group meshes so far. “I think the dynamic will make such an exciting season and you dont know what’s going to happen,” she says.
