Yahoo: Who’s Trending Now? October 27, 2010
#1 This Wee Early Wednesday Morning:
It seems that Kara DioGuardi has wasted no time wallowing in the disappointment of losing her American Idol gig. Ms. DioGuardi has signed on to co-host a new (singing competition) reality show on Bravo – Going Platinum. Kara DioGuardi’s co-host/co-judge? None other than fabulous recording artist Jewel. You may read the whole story right here.
Bravo’s new reality show may just be a winner for the former American Idol judge. The concept of Going Platinum is quite a bit different from the huge hit singing show on Fox; word is that its style is more in line with another Bravo hit, Top Chef.
Okay, great. But that’s not why I’m really happy for Kara DioGuardi. I am just plain glad she got another music reality show.
And here’s why:
I have only watched a handful of seasons (three, maybe four) of American Idol. But I’ve seen enough to know that I liked the original judges panel – Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson. When American Idol brought a fourth judge to the panel in season 8 I was prepared to dislike her intensely.
My sincere apologies, Kara DioGuardi. I know its all part of reality TV but having a fourth judge just seemed awkward.
Reality hit music TV show Fast-forward: Paula Abdul leaves. Ellen DeGeneres comes in – yay. Ellen leaves – boo. Simon Cowell leaves. Kara DioGuardi gets fired; and a whole new panel is chosen. Save for Randy Jackson – good for you, Dawg!
In the mean time I grew to like Ms. DioGuardi. I like her style of judging, her attention to detail, and her seemingly genuine caring for the contestants. I say seemingly because one never knows when it comes to TV shows; especially reality TV shows – but I do like Kara DioGuardi.
What does all this mean?
I am very happy for Kara DioGuardi. I hope her new show Going Platinum is a huge success. I wish her and Jewel good luck as judges too. I also wish to thank Bravo for bringing a music reality show to life that is unlike Idol. Another smart move on Bravo’s part was fashioning it in the style of several of their other hit reality shows and not trying to mirror Fox’s hit singing show.
The bottom line this wee early Wednesday morning?
Everyone appears to be happy on all sides. Including me. So there you have it. Whether you’re a reality show – music – Kara DioGuardi fan or not; now you know a little something more than you did before; including why Yahoo’s #1 trending now topic peeked my interest this wee early Wednesday morning.
