Paula Abdul, for all her meager vocal skills, was at least an accomplished dancer and choreographer.
Now that Paula has announced she’s leaving American Idol, the show is scrambling to find big names to fill her spot.
Enter this woman:

Victoria Beckham got a taste of being a judge on a U.S. reality show when she was the guest panelist on Project Runway (where she schmoozed with winner Christian Siriano).
Victoria’s previous accomplishments have included marrying well and having the lofty distinction of being the least talented Spice Girl.
