Apparently some people are bored with watching the same tired banter between American Idol judges Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell, and listening to Randy Jackson’s barely intelligible “dawg” comments. As of next season, the hit singing competition show will try to vamp up the stale trio by adding another judge, songwriter Kara DioGuardi, to the cast. While she’s not a household name (yet), DioGuardi has made a name for herself within Tinseltown by penning hits for A-listers like Gwen Stefani, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, and Kelly Clarkson. “She is a smart, sassy lady, and one of America’s most successful songwriters. We know she will bring a new level of energy and excitement to the show,” said AI creator Simon Fuller. Still, one can’t help but wonder if Paula’s controversial antics from last season had anything to do with adding a fourth judge. Is this a sign that Paula is on her way out?
