Kara DioGuardi Talks Battle With Stage Fright on 'Regis and Kelly' (VIDEO)

Fans of Kara DioGuardi might be surprised to learn that the singer-songwriter has waged an ongoing battle against severe stage fright. And during her days as a judge on 'American Idol,' she recalled a lesson from her father as a way to fight off the jitters, she said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

DioGuardi said her father pushed her to succeed as a child, and this prepared her for nerve-wracking situations in adult life.

"It helped me a lot, especially in the 'Idol' days when, you know, I had to get up there on live television," DioGuardi said. "I kind of remember being 12 then and he would say, 'Come on! You can do it! You can do it!' And while I had stage fright and I was very uncomfortable, it did prepare me for what I was going to face later."
