Kara DioGuardi strips down to a bikini on American Idol finale

New American Idol judge Kara Dioguardi had a bizarre duet with former AI contestant “bikini girl” Katrina Darrell on last night’s finale. Ryan Seacrest presented Katrina with a “Golden Idol” for “Best Attitude” which seemed like a pretty good excuse to get her to parade on stage in a bikini again. Ryan then quipped “I was going to ask you what’s new, but I think I know,” in an obvious reference to her new boobs. He had her Darrell sing again, and she offered a weak version of Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love,” the song she auditioned with.

When she was a few lines in, Kara came out behind her to chime in with a mock competition. At the end Kara stripped off her dress to show that not only could she sing better than Katrina, she also had a more banging non-surgically enhanced body. Kara seemed a little shy about being on stage in a bikini it and covered up quickly afterwards. Ryan announced that they put her up to it and were going to donate money to charity now that she held up her end of the bargain.

Kara seemed really petty to me when she took offense at bikini girl’s audition, but she kind of redeemed herself with this duet. In a way she was mocking herself while showcasing her talent and great body. Will she be on the show next season though, or do the producers realize that Idol flows better when she’s not butting heads with Simon?

Thanks to OK! Magazine for these screenshots from the show last night.

    I thought that was hilarious, and it took “Bikini Girl” down a peg…that girl cannot sing at all, and has no insight whatsoever. Being pretty will only take you so far; you gotta have substance too.

    And how brave of Kara…even if I had the body for it (and she definitely does!) I don’t think I’d have the nerve to do what she did!

    dear god…this show has turn into a complete freak show. how embarrassing for everyone involved. WOW.

  3. guest says:

    unnecessary & completely desperate.

  4. Jess says:

    Yeeah… leave your clothes on Kara, and don’t ever sing again. Let’s leave that to the actual people on the show, NOT the person who wrote a HORRIBLE song about hurricanes and whatever the hell it said… adam and kris couldnt even sing the song it was written so poorly.

    Her and the bikini girl were unnecessary parts of the finale…. they both sounded like nails on a chalkboard.

    thought it was funny. i definitely enjoyed it and yeah, kara CAN sing

  6. Gina says:

    This was one of my favorite parts of the show. Kara is not my favorite but Katrina deserved to be put in her place after being so disrespectful and shallow.

  7. Wow says:

    This show has stopped being good many seasons ago. The addition of Kara doesn’t help either.

    Very desperate.

  8. Boom says:

    Kara just sank to “Bikini Girl” level…..hooooray!!! who’s the beotch?

  9. ChristinaT says:

    this move seemed so desperate to me… you need to prove yourself to some nobody THAT badly? sad…

  10. Money says:

    Perhaps this is Kara’s season finale and that is why she showed her stuff?

  11. flourpot says:

    I haven’t watched this show at all this year but I need to say, wtf? Are things really that bad that a new judge has to go up on stage and show off her bits? Sad.

  12. hooray says:

    i hated kara the entire season but when she did this I was SO happy!! That bikini girl i think is the b*tch who in the early group of people who got into hollywood was sooo concieted and made her entire group get out because she never showed up to practice and then just decided to show up after they rehearsed without her just as they were about to go on. And she was such a b*tch about it and even when they tried to be nice to her, she was a b*tch to them. She got what was coming to her last night!! love it!

    Although minorly petty, it was great entertainment and certainly a celeb strike back at people who want their 15 mins of fame for being mean and arrogant without earning the right to be there.

    I’m sure Katrina will find a nice pole as a dance partner for her new chest.

  14. Jeane says:

    I agree it was petty, but the look on bikini girl’s face was worth it. She looked like a total ass. Kara completely blew her away, and she looked so stupid standing on stage in a bikini (!! seriously why??).

    By the way, how embarassing to be known as “bikini girl”! Why why why would you want that?? Her audition was one of the stupidest things I have ever seen on tv. What an idiot.

  15. Annie says:

    Pretty may only take you “so far” but hey, can’t deny that where they get to is pretty damn far.

    It fades and her star will too. Soon.

  16. HashBrowns says:

    I thought it was funny. I haven’t been watching the whole season though…all I’ve known about was “bikini girl’s” audition.

    It was a tad petty, yes, but Kara can sing better than Katrina and the look on that little tart’s face when Kara was overwhelming her was worth being a bit petty I think.

  17. Cinderella says:

    Kara took that chick down.

  18. Bella says:

    Kara did it for a charity people, your jealous because you dont have her body or her voice!!!

  19. ChristinaT says:

    while kara body is AMAZING… i think biki girl’s is more sexually appealing. she seems to have a little more feminity to it… kara must have worked her ass off for this… but seriously, WHO CARES? being a better singer than some whiny nobody isn’t really saying much is it?

  20. jennifer says:

    @ Bella – it’s “you’re”, honey.

    I agree, the look on Bikini Girl’s face was PRICELESS lol. Too funny.

  21. Nofakes says:

    Take a good look at Kara’s chest. The distinct lines show that hers are fake too!
