Neil Patrick Harris will be a judge on "American Idol"?

The star of "How I Met Your Mother" sat at the judges' table to help weigh in on the singers during Tuesday's Dallas auditions.

The host of the 2009 Emmy Awards joins the "Idol" guest judge lineup that includes Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain, Joe Jonas and Kelly Clarkson.

Guess they're not really missing Paula Abdul much yet.

We'd watch anything NPH is on. And we bet he can make Simon Cowell squirm.

Will you watch him on "Idol"?
