Kara DioGuardi has found a new gig–on an upcoming competition reality show for singer/songwriters on Bravo.
Kara will be head judge along with singer/songwriter Jewel, who will host and help give contestants feedback, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Jewel had a stint as judge on Nashville Star a few years ago (She also guest-judged on Idol in Season 6).
Going Platinum will run 10 episodes and is set to debut in 2011. Here’s a synopsis from the official press release:
“Hit songs are the backbone of the music industry, and as a publisher, nothing excites me more than finding new songwriting talent, ” said Kara from a release. “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.”
Kara knows the business. Her problem on Idol, for the most part, wasn’t’ what she said, but how she said it. She might be a really good judge in a different setting. We’ll see.
