Fired Idol Judge Kara DioGuardi is getting a new TV show according to sources.
Cable channel Bravo said on Tuesday that “Going Platinum” would premiere next year, with DioGuardi as head judge, and country singer Jewel hosting the program.
DioGuardi’s departure from “American Idol” after just two years was announced in September in a major shake-up of the top-rated TV singing contest on the Fox network.
“Going Platinum” will follow 12 contestants through songwriting challenges in genres ranging from love ballads to dance tracks. The show will also highlight the personal lives of the contestants.
The winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize and a publishing and recording contract.
