Yippee. Avril Lavigne will split guest judging duties with Katy Perry when the American Idol Season 9 judges round takes place in Los Angeles:
Avril Lavigne and Katy Perry will join the growing list of singers and entertainers serving as guest judges on season 9 of American Idol, EW.com has learned exclusively. Sources close to the show say Lavigne and Perry will each spend one day critiquing singing hopefuls when the show films its callback audition episode in Los Angeles; the latter singer was confirmed as an Idol sub several weeks ago, but had not been scheduled. Other names confirmed to fill the seat formerly held by Paula Abdul during season 9 include Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Neil Patrick Harris, Shania Twain, Kristin Chenoweth, and Joe Jonas.
Avril should be scintillating. *cough*. I just read a little blurb in Rollling Stone about Avril–she’s in LA recording her next album.
If Katy pulls off being as big a bitch on the panel as she promises she’ll be, she could be entertaining.
