Apparently content to continue searching the record store’s bargain bin for judges, Victoria Beckham has been named the temporary replacement for Paula Abdul on American Idol. Sky News reports:
The former Spice Girl has agreed to make a “one-off appearance” on the hit US talent show, according to her publicist. Posh will join fellow judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi on the panel. The announcement comes just a day after Paula Abdul announced on Twitter that she was leaving American’s most popular show after eight seasons. The role is a massive coup for Posh, who has been keen to make it big in American since arriving with husband David two years ago. But it is understood she can not commit to anything other than a guest role as she wants to focus on her fashion range. The singer has made in roads into the world of fashion since her collection of dresses debuted at 2008’s New York Fashion week and received rave reviews.
Man, this seems like a pretty good choice. Because, if you’re an aspiring music star, who better to get advice from than an untalented, irrelevant chick who hasn’t had a hit in 15 years? I’m not even sure why they bothered. The only people that make any sense on that damn show are Simon and Randy. The panel could be those two and a framed picture of Victoria Beckham and nobody would know the difference.
