She'll join several other celebs lined up to take the spot of former judge Paula Abdul, including Victoria Beckham – who has filled in in Boston and Denver — and Katy Perry, whose judging dates have yet to be announced.

Paula announced on August 4 via Twitter that she would be leaving the show after eight seasons as a judge, and she's had no shortage of suitors since.
