Victoriabeckham_mtvawards07_240 A source close to the “American Idol” production crew told several websites that Victoria Beckham came across as “icy and wooden” during her guest-judging stint.

According to the source, Beckham was “trying too hard to be nice,” which seems counterintuitive to me. Wouldn’t “icy and wooden” be about the last things you would be if you were trying super hard to be nice? I don’t know.

It’s disappointing to hear she didn’t do so well because she seemed so excited about the judging gig. Earlier in the week, Victoria was quoted as saying, “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. 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.”
