Platinum Hit 2011: Kara DioGuardi, Jewel Take on American Idol!
American Idol’s Kara DioGuardi returns to TV with a new music reality show called Platinum Hit. Hosted and co-judged by singer Jewel the show follows 12 up-and-coming musicians as they face off in a series of song writing challenges. The winner will take home a cool $100,000 prize, a publishing deal with Sony, BMI Songwriters The Writing Camp and a recording deal with RCA/Jive.
Platinum Hit promises to test the talents of its contestants as they are faced with the challenge of writing songs in many different genres and themes. From ballads to dance hits, each episode of the show has a theme (a la theme week on American Idol). The contestants will have to write original songs that fit each week’s theme then perform them in front of the judging panel.
Kara DioGuardi reached into her rolodex and is bringing in some pretty big talent to sit in as guest judges and mentors. Scheduled to join her on Platinum Hit are Leona Lewis, Natasha Bedingfield, Donna Summer, Jermaine Dupri, Taio Cruz and Ryan Tedder.
Platinum Hit promises to take us inside the creative process as we join these talented singer/songwriters in the competition. It looks a lot like American Idol only for those who can also write and not just sing. I get the feeling we are in for some great performances as well as some train wrecks and some good old fashioned drama.
Platinum Hit airs tonight at 10PM on Bravo.
