    kara’s gorgeous! but i felt bad that so many who were auditioning didn’t know her name, lol

    I love Kara! You notice a total change in Paula now that she has a girl on her side. When bikini girl dissed Kara, Paula jumped right in defending her. Girls gotta stick together, especially when the male judges are mesmerized by a girl’s bouncing boobs.

    Kara is my new favorite judge!

    Sarah Says:

    I thought it was awesome of Paula to defend Kara when Bikini girl was being a b*tch to her. She was right: Kara doesn’t need to prove herself. It’s obvious that she’s talented and very much accomplished and she’s a great judge. She’s nice when she should be, but she isn’t going to take crap from anyone.

    get real Says:

    Don’t like her at all. She’s a Know-It-All. She acts like she knows more than all the other judges combined. Get rid of her!!!!!

    What has she done to qualify as a judge? Write silly songs? Gimme a break!

    So far I liked her on the show it’s a better balance. As for her looking good for her age of 38 that amuses me that there is a certain mindset about women aging. Because being almost 40 isn’t like it’s 60 or something. I think the key is good taking care of yourself at any age. I think she looks about her age range. But she is overall an attractive woman.

    i’ve always loved her as a songwriter and singer so i couldn’t be happier that she’s now in the spolight

    Tarah Says:

    I don’t mind her. She does sort of come across a bit as a know it all and I htink she thinks she’s all that now that she is in the spotlight but I still like her. I think she knows what she’s talking about with the contestants.
