Victoria Beckham "Beyond Excited" to Join American Idol

Hollyscoop is on Idol overload this week! After news broke that
Paula Abdul was leaving the show, we got word that Victoria Beckham would be a guest judge on the new season.

While American Idol execs try to figure out who they'll replace Paula with permanently, Victoria says she's "beyond excited" at the idea of being on the show, even if it's just for one episode.

“I am beyond excited. When I got the phone call, I just couldn’t believe it,” said Beckham. “I feel like I’ve got the best job that there is. I’m going to try hard to pout and not shatter that illusion that I’m a moody cow but I don’t know if I can. [Laughs] I’m just so happy.”

“I want to be nice to people,” she said. “I know how it feels to be stood there and to be judged and how it can feel when nerves really get the better of you. And I don’t want to shatter anybody’s dream but at the same time there’s nothing wrong with a bit of constructive criticism.”

We rarely ever hear Victoria talk, so it'll be interesting to see what she brings to the table. She's almost like a statue posing all the time, but apparently she's actually really funny!

How do you feel about the possibility of Posh joining American Idol permanently? Paula has already said she has other offers for other shows, so her spot needs to be filled anyway. Who else would you love to see make a special appearance next season as a guest judge?
