Kara DioGuardi to release her memoirs next year

Kara DioGuardi is writing her memoirs! The former American Idol judge will release A Helluva High Note on April 26, 2011. According to Entertainment Weekly, the tome will cover DioGuardi’s two-season stint on Idol and “her life and career as a producer, songwriter and artist”.

Kara announced last month that she will be the head judge on Going Platinum, a new song-writing competition on Bravo.

“Hit songs are the backbone of the music industry, and as a publisher, nothing excites me more than finding new songwriting talent,” she said.

“I am happy to be a part of a show that helps up and coming songwriters pursue their dreams, while giving the public a look into the creative process.”

Going Platinum — which will follow 12 musicians as they write music and lyrics for different genres, from hip-hop to love songs to dance tracks — starts taping this month and will premiere in 2011. The winner will receive a $100,000 prize, as well as music-publishing and recording deals.

A source familiar with the show said it’s a good fit for DioGuardi because “at heart, she’s a songwriter. Idol was performance-driven. This isn’t just about finding the next big singer — it’s about finding a hit maker, and she loves to nurture talent.”
