E! reports that Kara DioGuardi is coming back at significantly less pay than the other three. That makes sense.
What else is DioGuardi going to do? As for “Idol,” they must have known viewers are split on her. Some like her. Some don’t. I’m kind of indifferent. Occasionally, she’d add some interesting insight into the issue of marketability but as the show went on, she became more and more of a mindless cheerleader. We’ll see if things change this year because it looks like we’re stuck with four judges again. (I can’t imagine Paula Abdul NOT coming back.)
What do you think of Kara DioGuardi coming back?
- Yes! She deserves another shot at the big time!
- Nope. I found her useless.
- Meh. Could take her either way.
Jordin Sparks opened last week at a modest 48,000 copies, ranked No. 7 for the week. This, despite a top 11 hit in “Battlefield.” (It’s almost top 10 and should make it.)
Her first album opened at 119,000 copies.
