Mary J. Blige Signs On to American Idol
Aug 14, 2009 05:50 PM ETby Mickey O'Connor11 Comments

Mary J. Blige will be a guest judge on American Idol this season.

Blige, the Grammy-winning Queen of Hip-Hop and Soul, will sit on the judges' panel when Idol heads to Atlanta for auditions, according to People.com.


Judges Kara DioGuardi, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell, host Ryan Seacrest and guest judge Victoria Beckham were all in Boston Friday finishing up that city's auditions. "The judges and production team have been having a lot of fun with Victoria," a show source told People.com. "She's had a great response so far, and has been really warm with the contestants."



After Paula Abdul's surprising announcement that she would not return to the show, Fox executives announced that Beckham, Katy Perry and other yet-to-be-named celebrities would serve as guest judges during the audition rounds.

Fox has not named a permanent replacement for Abdul. Idol's ninth season premieres in January 2010.

Blige to appear on American Idol
(UKPA) 54 minutes ago

Mary J Blige is to appear as a guest judge on American Idol.

The Just Fine singer is set to join judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi at the Atlanta auditions, reports E! Online.

Blige follows in the footsteps of Victoria Beckham, who filmed a guest slot as a judge on the TV talent show in the wake of long-time judge Paula Abdul's departure.

I Kissed A Girl singer Katy Perry is also being lined up for a guest judging slot and it is thought other celebs will also spend time on the panel.

The ninth season of American Idol hits TV screens in January.
