Dry your tears, people. With lightning speed, Paula Abdul is said to have been replaced on American Idol by … drum roll … Victoria Beckham! Huh? According to the British tabs, the world-class singer (ahem) is going to take up the vacant judge’s seat for a few upcoming episodes.
“Victoria is hugely flattered as this is one of the highest profile gigs in America…Network bosses would love to give her the job full-time and it looks like it’s there for her if she wants it,” reports the Mirror.
How will this work? Maybe Victoria’s famous “gay man“ trapped inside of her will come out and deliver some waspish humor. Maybe she’ll announce that she’ll debut her smile if someone sings well enough? You gotta have a gimmick, and we’re not sure being super super thin is enough. [Photo: Splash News Online]
