Victoria Beckham & Joe Jonas on American Idol -- FIRST LOOK

Check out these shots of celebrity guest judges at the American Idol auditions for season 9 hopefuls!

Stars like Katy Perry, Mary J. Blige and Neil Patrick Harris, lent a hand to Kara Dioguardi, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell and helped choose singers who would make it to Hollywood!

Guest judge Victoria Beckham told People she tried to find the best in everyone who auditioned.

“I believe in constructive criticism and I am a very positive person, so I always tried to find something good and helpful to focus on, be it someone’s singing, their looks or their overall style,” Vic said. “Having been a performer, I know how difficult it is to be that person standing there being judged. I didn’t want to trample on people’s dreams.”

American Idol starts up again this Tuesday (January 12) at 8/7c!

Other celeb judges pictured: Shania Twain, Avril Lavigne, Kristin Chenoweth and Joe Jonas

  • please

    it’s a singing competition… how could vicky be a judge?

  • Mary

    Neil looks cute!

  • bitchplease


  • Dina`

    AI is trying too hard. I still won’t be watching.

  • Baby

    this season should be fun to watch

  • Lowest denominator

    Gee, I wonder who AI is sponsored by…and why am I so thirsty for something cool, bubbly, and refreshing?


  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    ..`that’s so funny. two non-singers judging a singing competition. LOL

  • Joe

    I will watch this for Victoria alone, she is such a darling, and she looks stunning there. As for her being a guest judge, get over it haterz, she has been in the most successful girl group of all time, and before she has been through million of auditions like this, so she is PERFECT to judge!

  • Travel Blogs

    Love her

  • Travel Blogs

    I love her

  • bbwfriends

    Posh still is hot!

  • Jasmine

    The only people who have the right to judge is Mary J and Shania….

  • Celebfan

    Victoria is so beautiful!

    Shania looks gorgeous too.

  • ok

    She’s hot but she can’t sing…. and neither can the Disney hyped widget named Jonas.

    Does AI matter?…Have you seen Lamberts p iss poor numbers this week?


  • Jenna

    lol victoria’s judging singing!
    i never knew mary was so dark!
    (not that anything is wrong with that, it’s just an observation)

  • Pining for Chris

    Victoria judging singers? It infuriates me…just like that dumbell Cheryl Cole (X Facotr) having the nerve to call on someone for being “pitchy”.

  • oprah

    Kristin Chenoweth is amazing, I’m so excited to see her guest judge.

    I wonder what if Courtney Love could’ve been a guest judge, that would’ve been interesting to see.

  • rock_chic_chick

    the only ones out of these guest judges that can judge talent is mary j blige, shania twain and kristin chenoweth. the rest have ZERO talent.

  • Tanya

    Victoria is SO beautiful! She is really cute!

  • Georgia

    Victoria is really sweet! Loved what she said! And the best thing about AI is Simon Cowell – hands down. You just never know what he’s bound to say or do next! Oh boy can’t wait!!

  • VIP

    Hopefully this will be the last year for this show. It has gotten old real fast.

  • http://justjared shamilah

    ahh i cant wait! im only watching it cause of Joe Jonas! he’s soo dam hot & amazing! & Joe is a singer duh thats why he should be a judge :)

  • emmaa

    I can’t wait to see Vicky on the show!! :)

  • wendy

    She looks beautiful in that shot, but lol at all the publicity she is getting AI, when in fact she is only in two episodes for 10 minutes each. LOL goes to show she was worth the money, and right choice. But i am glad that she didnt take the full time judge position even though she was offered. Goes to show how smart she is, now that her brand is doing great it would be a dumb move.

    Anyway cant wait to see her on.

  • Piotrek

    Wow, Vic actually smiling on that photo!

  • shudder

    who let the ape out of it’s cage?
    what a horrifically ugly human being she is… shudder.

  • CanadaGirl

    @Joe: Totally agree.
    I would watch this show when she’s on. I don’t like it normally, but Victoria could make me tune in!

  • lakers fan in boston

    the fact that their adding guest judges just makes it more stupid
    i really cant w8 for this show 2 collapse =D
    all the judges suck except simon

  • Lind

    Do Victoria Beckham really need to work?????????
    She is rich as all out doors. She should step back and let people that need a job work to earn money. She piles money on top of money.
    She should do loads of volunteer work since she don’t need the pay check.

  • horseridingsingles

    Jonas is breaking up

  • nguyen tran gia linh

    I Love Shania & Victoria
    They Are Hot ;)

  • Lela

    Having VB as a judge on AI is a complete joke… how far this show has fallen.
    Maybe if this were a show about anorexic, pouting, wannabees riding the fame coat-tails of their spouse, then Mz. Beckham’s input would be desired since that is her life and I’m sure she has lots of advice on how to accomplish that!

  • slambang

    Avril Lavigne and Joe Jonas? What do they know about real music? LOL!

  • hotti

    What’s that no mark Beckham doing there? Stay in the US!

  • richsugarmommies

    Posh is dating Jonas brothers, go cougar!

  • paulie

    she (vb) is seriously ugly… good thing for her that she got pregnant with beckhams’ spawn and he therefore did the so-called “right” thing and married her. why he stays with her ugly a** is a mystery to all. no amnt. of $$$, expensive clothes or accessories can take away her fugness- no wonder the man cheats.

  • Robert

    @slambang: Avril knows a lot about real music unlike you. She is relly talented. Katy Perry, Joe Jonas and Victoria Beckham should no be a judge because they can ´t sing.

  • nph fan

    NEIL!! :D :D He’s so awesome!!

  • Naomi

    I actually really liked Vic on idol.
