Iamerican idol perry harris lavigne 'American Idol' premiere    which guest judge is most exciting?n all the Simon Cowell hullabaloo today, did we all forget “American Idol” is back tomorrow, Jan. 12? Excitement! Which guest judge are you most excited about?

Ellen DeGeneres didn’t join the judges’ panel until Hollywood Week (coincidentally filming this week), so in the interim “Idol” brought on a cavalcade of stars to guest judge.

Tuesday night’s premiere kicks off with the Boston Auditions and Lady V herself (that’s Victoria Beckham, for those of you not hip to Randy Jackson’s nickname).

The first time we ran this poll, some Avril Lavigne spammers must have been hard at work because she got 73% of the vote. Is the 21st-century-Robin-Sparkles really that highly anticipated? Or are you pumped for the Emmy-hosting Neil Patrick Harris? Just-engaged and known Adam-Lambert-fan Katy Perry? Vote below!
