Now that Paula Abdul’s worthless ass has been pink-slipped, “American Idol” has been lining up a series of guest judges to take her place. The most recent additions are the annoying-but-I’d-still-like-to-see-naked singers Avril Lavigne and Katy Perry.
Avril Lavigne and Katy Perry will join the growing list of singers and entertainers serving as guest judges on season 9 of American Idol… 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.
I read somewhere last week that Katy Perry said she was prepared to make like Simon Cowell and drop the hammer on retards who can’t sing (I’m paraphrasing), so that’s cool. But I still don’t see why they feel the need for a fourth judge. The first seven season of “Idol” had only three judges, it’s not like America is clamoring for one more person to fill the mythical void left by Paula Abdul. Paula Abdul is a void. Replacing her with a cardboard cutout is doing too much.
