Former ‘Idol’ judge Kara DioGuardi’s New Viral Pop Star

Former American Idol judge and Grammy-winning songwriter/producer/musician/singer (!) Kara DioGuardi recently conducted an interesting experiment with Elle magazine: trying to quickly turn someone into a viral pop star.

DioGuardi went after hours to the fashion magazine’s offices, where one of Elle’s junior editors became the guinea pig — with the help of Elle Creative Director Joe Zee and famed co-choreographers Derek Mondello and Cody Rigsby.

Check out the fun and real (yes, that’s an actual Elle staffer singing!) results below in the video for the song “My Heels.”
