Peeps have pointed out in comments that new American Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi has experience! She was a judge on the short-lived reality show, “The One”. Fun Fact: Syesha Mercado was a contestant on this short lived reality/competition show that sorta/kinda patterned itself after American Idol.
I dug up some You Tubes of Kara on “The One”. Check them out after the Jump…
During a coaching session, Kara chews out the cast. Check out Syesha Mercado in one of the shots:
She critiques one of the contestants. She’s very encouraging to this particular contestant:
She and Mark Hudson write a song for a contestant. She’s pretty encouraging here, too.
She’s a little irritated with this dude. He is kind of a tool.
