Peter Rice, Chairman of FOX Broadcasting, confirmed Thursday that Victoria "Posh" Beckham will be a guest judge on the next season of "American Idol," along with "I Kissed a Girl" singer Katy Perry.
We repeat though, Beckham and Perry will be guest judges. Paula hasn't been replaced … yet.
Rice says that their hope was that Abdul would come back and they currently have no contingencies or plans for any of the guest judges to become a permanent fixture on the panel.
For that role, they are looking to cast a "different energy" before January.
