Mary J. Blige to Guest Judge on American Idol

by at . Comments

So much for Victoria Beckham.

The British singer has passed the torch of American Idol guest judge to Mary J. Blige.

The Grammy Award-winner will meet up with Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara Kara DioGuardi in Atlanta for auditions next week. Sounds like she'll have popular shoes to fill.

“The judges and production team have been having a lot of fun with Victoria,” a show source said. “She’s had a great response so far, and has been really warm with the contestants.”
