New 'American Idol' Judge Kara DioGuardi Concerns Paula Abdul

 - Aug 25, 2008
Paula Abdul and Kara DioGuardi will just have to get along on this season of American Idol.

Idol producers announced today that Grammy-nominated songwriter Kara DioGuardi will be the long awaited fourth judge on the hit prime time singing series.

Whether she feels threatened by the presence of another woman on the judges bench or is just worried the extra vote will make choosing Idols difficult because of the even number of judges, Abdul says she is 'concerned' about DioGuardi's addition to the show.

Returning as judges on this season of American Idol are Abdul, Randy Jackson, and the infamous Simon Cowell.
