I’m not sure what to make of new judge Kara DioGuardi after the Louisville auditions.
At first, I admired Kara for her honesty. When contestant Joanna Pacitti came in, Kara pointed out that Joanna has already had a record deal (two in fact, although that wasn’t mentioned). Joanna admitted that “it hadn’t worked out” with a tear and then gave an excellent audition. But her voice is a little weak for my taste, which had me wondering if that’s why the singer has been dropped by two labels.
