Victoria Beckham: American Idol Judge!

Victoria Beckham will be a guest judge on one episode of American Idol of the upcoming season, her rep confirms.

The 35-year-old former Spice Girl will sit at the judging table alongside Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi.

On Thursday morning, Idol host Ryan Seacrest revealed that Posh will be judging tomorrow’s auditions in Denver, Colorado.

Posh has previously served as guest judge of Project Runway.

Yesterday, it was announced that Paula Abdul would not be returning for the new season of Idol. Paula was reportedly offered a multiyear deal that would have put her annual salary at over $5 million – a 30 percent raise.

The ninth season of American Idol kicks off January 2010.

    I’ll watch THAT episode. My friends and I will have a shot of … whatever… every time Posh smiles on the show.

    We might be quite sober by the end of the episode. Hope not :-)

    This is SUCH a NON story, why is everyone reporting about this as if she is replacing Paula?!!!

    I dont get it, she will only be a GUEST judge for one freaking episode of the damn auditions, who gives a crap, the real news is who will they get (if anyone) to actually replace Abdul on the show!!

    Posh will do great for that one though, she is always a cutie in interviews and on TV.

  • Anna

    NO! WHAT ABOUT PAULA?!?!?! SIMON is sposed to be the mean brittish peron on the show!!

  • Wendy

    Lalique get ready to get drunk and wasted out of your mind girl!!!

    I see you never seen VB in interviews, she is NOTHING like in the paps pictures and at the events.She has a kick a*s personality, and is actually extremely smiley and warm, didnt you see her on Leno?Biotch was laughing her tiny arse off!

  • diaboc

    WTF????????????? She can’t even sing well herself! Who is she kidding?

  • marissa

    how about they get judges who actually sing and know the art of the voice. or someone who knows the music business, not a fashion icon wannabe

  • Excuse me?

    You should make it clear they offered her $10 million over THREE years, that $3.33 million per year. Seacrest is making $15 million A YEAR! The disparity cannot be justified.

    She’ll get the $20 over three years, and she’ll return. You can count on it.

  • ?

    wtf? ok, so who’s next k holmes?

  • zxc

    Ha, ha, ha, what a joke! She is the last who can judge others vocal skills.

  • Cathey

    I watch AI because of Paula, Randy and Simon but when the judges became 4 and has another bitch talking worse than Simon, I started to lose interest…

    Young kids are the people who auditioned for this show and I hate hearing judges making too rough and nasty comments…..

    We need somebody there a judge who has a heart and I believe it’s Paula Abdul…the only judge who has that…It’s only her that really makes comments and remarks that are not so hurtful.

    OMG !!!!!!!!!

  • kaos

    civilization as we know it has ended! They can swing a cat and hit someone and that someone would have been more qualified to be AI judge.

    This woman has no talent, no personality, only manic obsession to be famous at all cost. Her quest is for self-promotion and self-delusion. And yes, a tireless PR team determined to get her into the American market.

  • i n f a m o u s l y c o o l

    it’s one episode, relax, losers.

  • t

    great choice, i’d much rather watch posh than paula

  • Jen

    awesome, love her.

  • Good god

    WHY?????? I thought the judges were supposed to HAVE talent. Kind of like Katie Holmes dancing/acting. Guess if your hubby’s have money, you can “think” you can do anything.

  • http://www.smartpeopledate.com/ kelly

    luv her! rock on, girl power!

  • brush yo teefs!

    didnt she admit to being a bad singer herself, so why the hell should she judge anyone on their singing
    her solo career bombed her “fashion line “sucks and her reality show bombed too
    why is she so desperate for americans to accept her
    take your spice girls money and go raise your kids pinhead

  • loyal

    You dopes don’t know what you are talking about . Is Simon a singer? I think VB will bring an interesting element to the show. She made it on her own, remember? She knows what it takes to form a group and make it successful. She isn’t too chatty and is very observant. I thought she did a great job as a guest judge on Project Runway. I think she would be fab. It isn’t her fault if Paula doesn’t come back. It is Paula’s choice. One I can live with!

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    really, what the hell does she no about music
    the spice girls sucked donkey balls big time
    if she wanted 2 do a guest appearance she should have gone to project runway or america next top model, fashion, something she nos

  • Someone

    at first, i was like what does she know about music. then i remember she was in the Spice Girls.

  • Auntie ann

    I hope it’s just one episode, maybe one of the audition shows if they’re smart and we’re lucky. I won’t watch the show she’s on, and if she’s on more than once, they’ll lose many viewers. This will probably be their last season. Paula bashing was one of the best parts of the show!

  • susi

    wow of out all the people WHY HER??
    OMG WTF DUDE!!

  • Butterfly

    Oh, I hope it is well publicized so I DO NOT watch that episode.

  • ls

    It will be awesome! Love VB!

  • ls

    It will be awesome! Love VB!

  • KVB

    Ughhhhh….when are they going back to Europe?

  • Powersave

    That bitch still wants to laught at us all the way to the bank. I hope you get this people, that this woman is taking revenge on us, for the backlash she and her materialstic husband got last month! She’s saying “Until i’m finnished with you, stick that in your pipe and smoke it!’

  • barron797

    @diaboc:

    No kidding. What does she know about singing? Who is she to critique?

    The only reason she got the job is because she’s British and the creator of the show is British.

  • Lalique

    @Wendy: That’s very good news :-))

  • ****

    This is hilarious. That’s like saying Burpney Spears should guest-judge Project Runway.

  • pol

    i hate the idea.. yes they state only one episode but one often leads to many more!
    i cant stand her. she has no talent and cant sing so i dont see why she should judge those who are 100x more talented that her!

  • mimiprism

    Wish the best to P Abdul

  • cmaine

    If she cant sing, ppl out dere cant sing too. she is heavenly pretty. so dont insult her. she is famous. Posh spice

    damn! she is gorgeous!

  • Theo

    Just love Victoria Beckham! She is one of the most beautiful faces in showbiz. She has been an amazing multi-talented singer and dancer (no matter what many believe, watch her youtube videos) and fashion icon and is really underrated. She has topped the world with the Spice Girls and achieved what few have. And on top of this she has been a great role model of wife, mother and female with career. That is great!
