Kara DioGuardi To Judge Folgers Contest

  • January 19, 2010
Singer, songwriter, music producer and "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi will lead a panel of judges for a new Folgers coffee jingle contest.

Folgers is inviting Americans to create their own versions of its 25-year-old jingle, "The Best Part of Wakin' Up," for the chance to win $25,000 and appear in a future commercial.

Videos are being accepted now through Feb. 28 on bestpartofwakinup.com. Semifinalists' videos will be posted online for a public vote from March 28 through April 21. Five finalists will travel to New York City in May to perform their versions of the jingle live in front of DioGuardi and other judges.

Over the years, the jingle has been recorded by many artists, in many musical genres, including country, R&B, a cappella and gospel.--Karlene Lukovitz
