More on New American Idol Judge Kara DioGuardi

Maura Johnston from Idolator just posted a bunch of videos of new Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi’s work.

Kara isn’t just involved in the business side of music as a songwriter/publisher/producer triple threat. She sings and performs as well.

Included in the batch of videos at Idolator, is a clip of Kara singing lead vocals on Celine Dion’s “Taking Chances.” That’s Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics playing guitar for her. She collaborated with Stewart on the pseudo-retro project called Platinum Weird.

Kara’s got writing credit on, “Walk Away” with Kelly Clarkson (and Raine Maida!). “Ain’t No Other Man” with Christina Aguilera, and Katharine McPhee’s “Love Story”. Maura has also posted videos from Hilary Duff, Ashlee Simpson and Lindsey Lohan. Eep!

Seems Kara has written or co-written tunes for all the major female pop tarts…

She sings better than Paula! That’s not saying much.

Check out the video of Kara singing “Taking Chances” after the jump…
