New 'Idol' Judge

LOS ANGELES (AP) - New "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi has a full schedule but there's someone she'd take a phone call from - Chris Daughtry. DioGuardi is a songwriter-producer who's worked with other "American Idol" contestants and is on the judging panel for the Fox TV show's eighth season, starting next week. Among the "Idol" singers she's yet to collaborate with, DioGuardi said best-selling rocker Daughtry tops the list. If he's out there and wants to co-write a song, DioGuardi says, he should give her a call. Daughtry was a fourth-place finisher on the show who has turned out Grammy-nominated hits with his band. DioGuardi says she loved working with inaugural "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson, calling her "feisty" and a singer who can handle any song.
