American Idol: Kara DioGuardi Gets Memoir Deal

December 01, 2010 01:00 PM by Shayla Perry


Former judge of FOX’s American Idol, Kara DioGuardi, has signed a deal with HarperCollins to write her memoir. Keep reading for all the details!

She may have left American Idol before we even got the chance to pronounce her name correctly, but fans of Kara Di-o-Gu-ar-di and Idol will surely get to know her better when her memoir hits the bookshelves in 2011.

A Helluva High Note: Surviving Life, Love, And American Idol will not only give fans a little insight as to what her two season stint on the show was like behind-the-scenes, but according to a publicist from It Books, the memoir will also delve into “her life and career as a producer, songwriter and artist.”

And for those of you who will miss seeing Kara at the judges’ table on American Idol, you can catch her when her new reality show, Going Platinum premieres on Bravo.

Going Platinum, which will be hosted by singer/songwriter Jewel (awesome!) will feature 12 musicians competing in a variety of songwriting challenges for the chance to win $100,000, a publishing deal with Sony, and a recording deal with RCA/Jive Records.

“Hit songs are the backbone of the music industry, and as a publisher, nothing excites me more than finding new songwriting talent,” DioGuardi said in an interview with TVGuide. “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.”

Kara’s memoir, A Helluva High Note: Surviving Life, Love, And American Idol, will be available at book retailers starting April 26, 2011.
