Extra's 'Idol' Makeover: Randy's Dawg Pound
May 2, 2005

It's the one place cameras never go on TV's hottest show: the "American Idol" dressing rooms -- but that's about to change as we kick off "Extra's Extreme Makeover: Judges Edition." That's right, we gave each of the judges a complete dressing room re-do, starting with Randy Jackson.

Backstage, Randy's original kennel was looking a little drab, so we helped him video tape a plea for help from designer Michael Moloney. And Michael was more than happy to throw Randy a bone. His team of designers worked ferociously, shopping and sawing their way to a top-dog dressing room in just 48 hours, creating a funky Dawg Pound, a soothing Zen Room and an upgraded bathroom.

"Now that's what I'm talking about!" Randy enthused as he took in his new digs. And host Ryan was equally impressed.

And we've got even more makeover magic in store as we continue with our Backstage renovations of Ryan, Simon and Paula's dressing rooms, next week!

Be sure to check out the Slide version of this story for pictures from Randy's new rooms.

Special thanks to all the organizations that helped us make Randy's retreat fit for a dawg.
