Shania Twain is the latest star to fill in for Paula Abdul during American Idol auditions, and the country star will guest judge August 30 and 31, reportedly in Chicago.
Shania joins AI judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi on the panel to decide who receives that golden ticket to Hollywood.
Mary J. Blige did her stint as a guest judge during American Idol auditions in Atlanta, Victoria Beckham took a turn in Boston and Katy Perry will also reportedly guest judge as well.
The hunt for a fourth judge is still on, and Fox Entertainment Chairman Peter Rice said:
“What we need to find is someone who has great chemistry,” Rice said. “It’s really a casting job. … There are multiple right answers and there are multiple wrong answers. Our job in the next four to five months is to really consider what makes this the most fun and the most entertaining.”
Meanwhile, TMZ reported that Paula may return to judging duties if the show agrees to her previous contract demand of $10 million per season.
