    I don't think she's the answer to the Paula problem.
    I don't see that at all from her. I guess the fact that I'm not a Randy fan and I think that too many people think whatever Simon says is gospel and hold him way too high up on a pedestal, she's a breath of fresh air to me.

    I'm not a fan of hers at all. I think, at this point, she is perhaps just trying to establish her role and her voice. Right now, however, she seems to be turning the show into the View - she seems to think that the one who speaks louder than / interrupts the others - should be heard.

    I haven't totally warmed up to her but I think she is adding a little something to the show, for one thing she seems to bring out some coherent comments in Paula.

    Well except when she gets Paula going (that ridiculous under the table and fake kiss thing?) and then I want to smack her. I think Kara is taking air time from all of them, I've noticed a couple of times already that Paula has been the one left with no air time while it's been mostly Kara and Simon doing all the talking. I think it depends on which judge you focus more in on and who you notice is losing air time to her, somebody has to....

    For some reason I can't explain, I think that Kara brings out more constructive feedback from Simon ... maybe he's trying to impress the pretty girl in the room. But it seems like Simon is MUCH more focused this year in not simply telling someone "you're wrong for this" but instead saying "as you are, you're wrong, but if you'll adjust this, this and that, it may just work".

    You do have a point there. I think it's because I care more about what she says anyway than Simon or Randy that it hasn't bothered me.

    Or it could be that she's pretty and you like looking at her more than Simon or Randy.

    I think they should drop her. She brings absolutely nothing to the table and with four judges the comments take too much time. Paula is at least entertaining in all of her ridiculousness, Kara is just a waste of time IMHO.

    I find Kara tedious and boring. The truth is, the judges aren't just there to pass judgment on the contestants. It's no accident that both Randy and Paula have referred to themselves as "cast" members of the show. The judges are meant to play certain roles: Randy the kind, down-home teddy bear, Paula the glamorous idiot-savant (seriously, sometimes she says some pretty intelligent stuff about contestants' techniques) and Simon the tell-it-like-it-is curmudgeon.

    Kara has not adopted any kind of interesting "character" and often says pointless, dopey stuff (which is done in a much more charming way by Paula).

    "Tons of surprises, but it wouldn't be 'American Idol' without it, would it?" Cowell told MTV News. "At the end of the day, I could go out and find 12 great singers, but that's kind of boring. The fact that there's people there who shouldn't be there makes it 'American Idol.' "

    I'm not overly fond of her, either. But, it could be that she's still new and trying to find her voice. My biggest concern is the time element and the ego factor. I agree that these comments can take way too much time awayt from the contestants.If the comments were very constructive then I'd say they were fine. However, most of the time they're not and Kara just seems to be in an ego battle with Simon.
