Paula Abdul openly criticized the fact that fourth judge Kara DioGuardi had been added to the American Idol roster, complaining that it now takes way too long to get through all the judges commentary.
To be quite honest, adding Kara DioGuardi has made me appreciate Paula Abdul that much more. It's pretty obvious that they brought Kara DioGuardi on because Paula Abdul is splitting after this year because her contract expires.
I'm not a big fan of Kara DioGuardi because she just doesn't bring anything interesting to the show. She tries to hard and last night she got burned when she was the first judge to give her opinion after her performance and all three judges completely disagreed with her. It was sweet.
And just for fun, here is Nick "Norman" Mitchell's performance.
