Does a New Judge on American Idol Portend the Departure Of an Old One?

Find my latest American Idol article here.

These are the types of stories that set my conspiratorial heart aflutter.  The producers of American Idol have announced that they are adding another female judge, Kara DioGuardi, to the show for the upcoming season.  They claim that they want to add more ‘girl power’ to the show. But I am anticipating that they are paving the way for Paula’s removal.

I don’t know the lady but from her picture, but she looks nice (as opposed to the ‘leather bag stretched over a skull’ look from Paula), and she looks intelligent (as opposed to the drugged-out, vacant look Paula usually sports).

I hope and pray that the producers are going to use this as an easy way to force Paula off the show, if not this season, then next.  It is not as if there is room for another opinion anyway.  They will not be able to fit in another cogent thought if they allow Paula to continue to ramble.  My bet is that they put this lady on the show for a season until everyone sees how much more she adds than Paula (Lord knows she could not give less).  Once the house-frau has accepted Mrs. DioGuardi, then all the producers have to do is bide their time until Paula either implodes or shows up looking smashed again.  Getting her off the show at that point will be easy.

The possibilities have me expectant, but I can be patient and hope for the best.

  1. They should have a clean slate of judges every season — the same judges year after year add to the staleness of the series.

  2. Paula rocks.

  3. Kara DioGuardi’s cuteness almost makes up for Simon’s horrid haircut
