Don’t feel to bad for American Idol ex-judge Kara DioGuardi, she already landed a new job.
Last month Kara announced she was leaving American Idol after being a judge on the show for two seasons. At the time, DioGuardi said, “”I felt like I won the lottery when I joined American Idol two years ago, but I feel like now is the best time to leave Idol,” DioGuardi said in a statement. “I am very proud to have been associated with [the show] — it has truly been an amazing experience. I am grateful to Fox, FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment, as well as the cast, crew and contestants, for all they have given to me. I look forward to my next challenge, and want to thank everyone who has supported me. All the best to everyone on Season 10!”
Now it seems her next challenge is upon her already. It was announced today that DioGuardi will be one of the judges on Bravo’s upcoming singer-songwriter competition show, Going Platinum.
The show will be hosted by Jewel and is set to premiere next year. It will follow 12 musicians as they compete in songwriting challenges. Each episode will feature a different theme in which contestants will be required to write and perform music from that genre.
“Hit songs are the backbone of the music industry, and as a publisher, nothing excites me more than finding new songwriting talent,” DioGuardi said in a statement. “I am happy to be a part of a show that helps up and coming songwriters pursue their dreams, while giving the public a look into the creative process.”
The winner of Going Platinum will earn a $100,000 cash prize; a publishing deal with Sony, and a recording deal with RCA/Jive Records.
