American Idol's new fourth judge, Kara DioGuardi, has made it through her first year of auditions and the first part of Hollywood week. She's survived challenges from Simon Cowell and Bikini Girl and a (hopefully fake) kiss from Paula Abdul, and she's fought for some singers she really likes while ridiculing others under her breath.
I'll be curious to see how Kara fares once the singers start performing live and she has to utter her judgments on the spot. But it seems like we've already gotten a pretty good look at what she brings to the table. So tell me, Idol fans: How do you think the big fourth-judge experiment is working out?
