Tuesday’s audition city, Denver, is where American Idol first found Chris Daughtry, who was surprisingly eliminated in Season 4 of the popular reality series. Guest judge Victoria Beckham again joined the regular panel to fill Paula Abdul’s vacant seat.
Auditions began with Mark Labriola, who thinks he looks quite a bit like Jack Black. He was very energized for his audition and truly interesting. His surprising voice was absolutely beautiful, forcing the panel to raise their eyebrows as they listened. The unique sound could certainly stand out in Hollywood Week. Victoria Beckham called the audition “a really nice surprise.” The judges unanimously voted to send Labriola to Hollywood, though not before Simon Cowell questioned him further about his unusual past.
Mario Galvan laughs when he’s nervous and arrived to his audition in a beat-up trench coat. He growled out an Elvis tune with tons of volume, but no display of vocal command whatsoever. “No,” Simon Cowell was brusque, and Mario went quietly away.
They can’t all get golden tickets. Even more will be rejected during Hollywood Week, some only one step away from reaching the big stage.
The CW is pulling out all the stops to keep Gossip Girl from falling to the ratings wayside. Now, Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) will be putting in a guest appearance.
Gossip has it that Blake Lively spoke with Beckham during the recent launch of her fashion collection. Apparently, the Brit is a fan of the show. According to an unnamed source, “Victoria isn’t an actress, and wanted her role to be very tongue-in-cheek.” Sounds interesting…if you like Victoria Beckham.
If this doesn’t pull GG out of its slump, who knows what the show will do next?

We weren’t kidding when we reported earlier that American Idol must go on, and Victoria Beckham is surprisingly not kidding when it comes to her excitement over her involvement with the show.
“When I got the phone call, I just couldn’t believe it. I feel like I got the best job that there is. I’m still grinning from ear to ear,” Paula Abdul‘s replacement admitted on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.
Grinning? Victoria? And here I was expecting a female version of Simon Cowell!
“I’m going to try hard to pout and not shatter the illusion that I’m a moody cow, but I don’t know if I can - I’m just so happy,” she said.
I’m not sure if I can take any more of these Posh Spice revelations.

Posh Spice, a.k.a. Victoria Beckham, joined Kara, Simon and Randy today for American Idol auditions in Denver, Colorado. “We gotta try and make it work, man,” said Randy Jackson of doing the show without it’s original female judge.
Kara DioGuardi said she’s “completely shocked” and that Paula Abdul’s absence is “such a loss for the show and the contestants.”
Apparently, Posh and Simon Cowell already have a history together - Cowell turned down the Spice Girls. “I think he’s great,” a smiling Victoria Beckham told reporters.

It seems Christian Siriano‘s 15 minutes are nowhere close to being up.
In the past few weeks, the Project Runway winner has had a date with Posh Spice, been mocked on Saturday Night Live and created a dress for singer Kimberley Locke to wear on American Idol. Now Siriano will be moving on to the next phase of his career: acting.
Come May sweeps, the designer will be appearing on the second best show suited for him. He and Elle fashion director Nina Garcia will be stopping by the offices of Mode on Ugly Betty. Coincidentally, Siriano’s idol (Victoria Beckham) has also guested on the series.
No word yet as to what role Christian’s role on the comedy will be, but I’m hoping that it will somehow involve him brushing Wilhelmina off. Better yet - maybe he should compete with Marc to be Amanda’s bestest friend. Ooh….the possibilities!

Well, it seems Posh Spice was being totally sincere. Or, at the very least, she’s willing to talk to Siriano again. In an interview with People, the 21-year-old winner revealed that he already has appointment to see Beckham very soon.
“I’ll be seeing her next week, so I made her a few dresses. Hopefully she likes them, so we’ll see how it goes. After the filming, we chatted and she really said some amazing things. And it’s such an honor because she can wear any designer she wants.”

Christian Siriano is officially kind of a big deal tonight. The 21-year-old freelance fashion designer accomplished two major goals: his collection won Project Runway: Season 4 and he made guest judge Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham smile. In fact, the usually enigmatic pop star told Siriano she’d love to wear anything he designed.
It is no secret that Season 4 of Project Runway lacked the drama and suspense of past years. There was no big twist in the final show either- no extra “look” to cobble together in the 11th hour, no scandals involving outside sewing help and no shouting matches between fellow designers. But what the show lacked in reality TV drama it more than made up for in sophistication and style. Each of the three remaining designers offered something new and fresh to the usually jaded fashion world.
Project Runway: Season 4 fanatics will have to wait a few more weeks to find out which designer won the big prize. But people who saw the remaining contestants’ final runway shows on the last day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City say it should be well worth the wait.
The only spoiler provided in the Bryant Park tents Friday was who will serve as the season finale guest judge: Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham.
The 1000 or so fashionistas in the crowd are none the wiser on who the finalists actually are. Since there are still two more episodes before the two-part season finale, all five remaining designers sent their collections down the runway. Two served as decoys to throw off the crowd. When the finale airs you’ll only see the three finalists’ collections.
Guest judge Victoria Beckham, a style icon known for making bold choices and setting major trends (i.e. the asymmetrical bob), said she saw a clear winner in the pack. Of the designer Beckham considers the best she says, “everything I saw I would wear myself”.
So what were the collections like? Insiders say the designers expanded on what they were already known for during Project Runway: Season 4.

Although she’s only been in America for a few months, Victoria Beckham has already managed to start a new celebrity trend: Ugly Betty appearances. After the Spice Girl’s stint on tonight’s show, fans can expect to see a cameo from Snoop Dogg this Dec. 13th. Now it’s being rumored Miss Lindsay Lohan may be soon guesting on three episodes as well.
While I really wouldn’t want a Lohan appearance to overshadow a great show, I would be willing to overlook my feelings for her in this once instance. Assuming the TV Guide buzz is true, Lindsay may be cast as a former high school classmate of Betty’s. She would also be the manager of a fast-food restaurant.
Now if that doesn’t scream Lindsay…..well, then it screams K-Fed. Either way, I’d be watching.

I love how celebrities think their lives are so interesting that the masses will watch every detail played out on television. Well, in some cases, I suppose it’s interesting. In this case, I’m not so sure. Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice, is negotiating her own reality series. An unnamed source says that the decision will be “coming very soon.” Reportedly, the show will be on NBC and details have not yet been ironed out. The rumors do speculate that the show will not focus as much on husband, David Beckham, or their three children. Instead, the series would take an inside look at her fashion business and her move to America in mid-July. Since David Beckham will be playing for the L.A. Galaxy team in a super lucrative deal, why not let the misses putter around with her little reality show?
