Mary J. Blige Will Guest Judge on American Idol

R&B songstress, Mary J. Blige is set to be the guest judge, along with Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Simon Cowell, for this weekend’s callback auditions in Atlanta GA, according to

I wonder if she’s interested in a permanent gig?

Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham is wrapping up auditions in Boston today, hopefully concluding a two-time stint (she judged in Denver last week) as guest judge.

Mary J. has appeared on Idol before–on the Season 5 finale, that had she and Elliott Yamin duetting   on U2’s “One”.   It was quite the dramatic performance, with Blige kinda forgetting she had a singing partner. Heh.

So what do you think? Yea or neigh?   Blige’s long, successful career in pop music means she could potentially add some thoughtful critiques to the panel.   I’m willing to give her a chance.
