American Idol’s 2010 season premiered last night, but if you’re wondering how new judge Ellen DeGeneres did, don’t—Victoria Beckham filled in, and not to critics' delight. From her "crazy" face to the "nothing" she added to the commentary, the Daily Mail cites several who were less than impressed with Missus Becks—in spite of the fact that she called out spat-hungry Simon Cowell.

Kara Dio Guardi also had a bit of a spat with Cowell, who almost voted yes on an irksome auditioner Dio Guardi hated so much she told him, “You need a spanking!” In other news from the Idol-verse, sources tell E! that host Ryan Seacrest could start doubling as a judge when Simon Cowell leaves the show. “Anything is possible,” says an insider. “Stay tuned.”
