avrillavigne americanmusicawards07 240 Avril Lavigne next 'American Idol' guest judgeApparently it takes 8 people to fill Paula Abdul’s “American Idol” shoes. Add singer Avril Lavigne to the list.

Canadian pop princess Robin Sparkles Avril Lavigne has punched her ticket for Meltdown City by agreeing to judge the callback rounds in Los Angeles. Please, oh please, let somebody sing “Sk8r Boi.”

Lavigne joins the ranks of Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry, Shania Twain, Joe Jonas, Kelly Clarkson, Neil Patrick Harris and Kristin Chenoweth. I know I already made the joke… but this really IS starting to sound like the next “We Are the World” benefit album lineup.
