Victoria Beckham Will Guest Judge On AI9

Victoria Beckham will be a guest judge on one episode of American Idol next season, her rep said. It appears that this will take place in an audition episode, according to the New York Post.

As if having one bored British judge on the panel wasn't enough?

Posh and her children have been to American Idol tapings in the past. I can't say whether or not she is a fan of the show, since she always sports that bored look on her face whether she's at her husband's games or at an Idol taping.

Not sure how I feel about this guest judging thing. When Idol has done this in the past, no one other than Quentin Tarantino was able to give any good critiques (LOL forever at his "Diana, you pulled off the song, but so what? You pulled off the notes and stuff, but I don't care"), so they were basically a waste of space/time. On the other hand, Posh doesn't seem the type to withhold her opinion so as to not offend. So if she can bring on the snark, this could be good. And if hubby tags along to bring the pretty, even better.

The former Spice Girl is managed by Idol creator Simon Fuller.
