Can the American Idol judges’ table handle more than oneÂ British personÂ with an attitude? Well, it did. Victoria Beckham joined the BostonÂ andÂ Denver judges’ panelÂ to decide whether Idol hopefuls would make it throughÂ to Hollywood week. Keep reading for more on her experience…
â€œIt was very exciting to be asked to do Idol,â€ Beckham told PEOPLE. â€œ[My husband] David and the boys are all big fans of the show. It was a real privilege to be a part of something so huge!â€
Despite Simon’s bad reputation, Victoria said she enjoyed her experience very much. She continued, â€œEverybody was very nice. Iâ€™ve known Simon for many years. Kara and Randy were very sweet. I have a lot of respect for them all as individuals and together they are a great team. I enjoyed working with and getting to know Kara â€” sheâ€™s a real girlâ€™s girl, like me. We went for dinner and she seems like a genuinely nice, down-to earth-girl. I felt each of the four of us brought a different role to the auditions and we complemented each other.â€
So what wasÂ Victoria looking forÂ during the auditions?Â â€œI wanted an overall look. For me, image is important as that helps sell records. I wouldnâ€™t judge someone just on their looks alone, or what they were wearing; it takes the whole package of vocal, personality and a personal style.â€
Speaking of Simon, she added that the two worked quite well alongside each other. â€œI have a dry sense of humor which worked very well alongside his acerbic wit and I really enjoyed working with Simon. I enjoyed the banter we created and the fact that we could laugh together â€” most of the time!â€
