Simon Says, 'she's Great!'
Kara DioGuardi took to the American Idol set like an old pro. DioGuardi, for those who have followed her career, has been a complete professional for years.
Watching DioGuardi alongside Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell on the season premiere of American Idol, it was if DioGuardi has been there this entire time.
Jackson tends to be flabbergasted that the person does not know they cannot sing. Abdul usually thanks them for coming out and tells them they look nice. Simon, well, we all know how Cowell handles bad singers.
But, DioGuardi, simply being herself without trying to find a niche for herself, managed to stand out amongst the seasoned judges with her demeanor and candor.
Back when DioGuardi was announced as a new judge on Idol, Cowell was nice, but did say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
Cowell was overruled by show producers and so far, at least for one night of American Idol, DioGuardi proved herself and showed that if something is not broken, it does not mean it could not be improved.
