Kara DioGuardi: Fully Behind Ellen DeGeneres!

at . Comments

As a post-Emmy Award party this week, Kara DioGuardi made it very clear: she's completely behind the selection of Ellen DeGeneres as a judge on American Idol.

"I think it's a genius decision," DioGuardi said. "I wish I had thought of it."

Kara added:

"I know a little bit about Ellen from watching her show and I would say she would probably be somebody who would be fair in her criticism and will try to be as supportive as she possibly could... I was on her show once and she's lovely, generous, very kind. I think it's going to be great."

Do you agree? Or do you wish American Idol had chosen someone else?

Kara runs the show now....with Simon gone next year Kara will have 2 full seasons behind her and she can do things her way, I can't wait to see what Kara will do or say when Simon is completely gone...


I'm Kara Dioguardi's biggest fan...she is so talented and a true music professinal. in all aspects of the words....I love that she hung in there and lasted for another season.... Idols gain.... Kara is the most prolific songwriter of our century, she crosses over so many genres.... I like the song "Lost" Kara sang at the Country Music Museum" at LA Live this last summer...Kara has a great voice and I hope she records "Lost" one day..with her voice... Kara rocks.....I love to check out her website and listen to her hits.....Kara knows how to be a Pro.......and make a professional of others, she has a keen sense of what works in the music industry..... I watch IDOL, just for what Karea is going to say or do....Kara ia awarding winning in her own right, Kara is a super star even without being on idol. Anyone that is in the industry knows that. Happy New Year, Kara has earned her way to the "Music Royal Elite" but ---has Simon recorded any songs lately??? Not... We love Simon because he never wears a tie. Just think how handsome Simon would be if he did...It might even improve his tempermental attitude....70% temper 30% mental...... I like the show on FOX "Two and 1/2 Men" I hope the times don't mess with my favorite comedy shows.... Happy New Year Fox! The network with extremely good taste! Wasnt it funny last season when Kara went on stage with bikini girl,,,,,og, that was soooooooooo funny......) Kara, girlfriend, you rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
