Simon Cowell Finally Outnumbered On ‘Idol’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Simon Cowell has always had the final say on American Idol, but all that’s about to change.

Idol executive producer Ken Warwick says the show’s new judge, singer Kara DioGuardi, is going to turn Simon’s world upside down this season.

Warwick says adding a fourth judge to the Idol mix gives Simon less power because he’s outnumbered.

DioGuardi and Paula Abdul have a tendency to team up against Simon, much to the bitter judge’s annoyance.

Says Warwick: “When the girls get together, it makes really good TV. Kara fits in well with the group.”

Another good thing about the Idol rookie is that since she’s a working singer, she’s able to lead by example.

Warwick explains, “She sings great, so if a contestant doesn’t sing the song right, Kara can show them how to do it on the spot. She sings a couple times from the judge’s panel.”

The eighth season of American Idol premieres January 13 on FOX.
