DioGuardi a singer/songwriter whos worked with Beyonce, Pink, and Colbie Caillat is the new judge on American Idol, and the experience feels like her first day of school all over again.
She explains, Its been kind of unnerving, especially at first. I didnt know where Id sit, when Id speak. Im fitting in little by little.
Luckily, DioGuardi has made friends quickly, especially with fellow judge Paula Abdul.
She says, Theres a little girl power going on with Paula and I. Sometimes we side against the guys.
She recalls an audition where an Idol wannabe performed in only her bikini which had Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson gawking while Abdul and DioGuardi just sighed and rolled their eyes.
So far, Simon hasnt bullied the newbie too much, but she utters, Theres still time!
Season eight of American Idol premieres Tuesday (Jan. 13) on FOX.
