kara dioguardi idol 320 'American Idol': Kara DioGuardi backs Harry Connick Jr. for Simon Cowell's spotKara DioGuardi has made her choices known for who should replace Simon Cowell on “American Idol” and which two contestants she sees in the finale next week.

DioGuardi tells People, “It’s sad to see Simon go, but the show is more needed now than ever because it’s harder for
people living in obscure places to find a manager who will bring their
record to someone who can make a decision.”

She also says that Harry Connick Jr. “obviously cares, and when you’re a judge you have to be
invested, opinionated and charming.”

How can we find a way to get her to join our Facebook page backing Harry Connick Jr. as Simon’s replacement?

Kara also says, “I think it will be a Crystal [and] Lee finale.” To that, we say — duh. No offense to Casey James, who is talented and very likable, but we think the Crystal-Lee finale has been inevitable for several weeks now.
