Kara DioGuardi Lands New Judging Gig On Bravo

Kara DioGuardi is rebounding from American Idol with a new judging gig on Bravo.

The feisty songwriter, who was dumped by Idol over the summer during its judging panel shakeup, has been tapped to be head judge on Going Platinum, a new song-writing reality competition.

The show will follow 12 musicians as they write music and lyrics for different genres of music, including hip-hop, love songs and dance tracks. Country star Jewel will host.

"I am happy to be a part of a show that helps up and coming songwriters pursue their dreams, while giving the public a look into the creative process," DioGuardi said in a statement.

Going Platinum starts taping this month and will premiere in 2011.
