American Idol: Victoria Beckham Fails Her Audition

american-idol_judgesAMERICAN Idol’s judging panel was once more set than Katie Price in a training bra. Then kook Paula Abdul gibbered off, Ellen Degeneres strolled in, Simon Cowell pulled out, Kara DioGuardi remained and Randy Jackson continued to call everyone “dog” and tell them that they “worked it out”.

But in episode one of the enw season, something odd happened: Victoria Beckham appeared. Vicky’s job was simple: make whoever followed her look good (Ellen Degeneres), bang on about what a dry sense of humour she has (break out the KY) and see if anyone licks her head. Or if anyone notices that Vicky’s singular talent is to be pushy. Ok, two talents – she’s married to David Beckham.

America watched Sticky Vicky. And America judged:

The Village Voice:

“Her face is just too crazy for the close-up, and she has nothing to add to the commentary. I always thought a British accent made people sound smart but I guess I was wrong.”

Seattle Times

It’s no wonder they didn’t do many close-ups last night! She was really no more than wallpaper and added very little interesting commentary.

From The LA Times:

“The night’s saddest failure.”

From The Washington Post:

“Beckham-Spice appears to have cracked open her head, because it seemed to be held together with a strip of lace she found in her granny’s closet. The other Idol judges politely pretended not to notice.”

All very cutting, we’re sure. but Posh ahds heard worse. She’s heard 50,000 football asking her husband if she takes it up the arse…
