Our very first ‘American Idol‘ Kelly Clarkson is heading back to the show that made her star, but this time she won’t be on stage.

The tables are turned for Clarkson, who’ll sit behind the judges table as the latest in the growing list of celebrities filling-in for the departed Paula Abdul.

A teen ‘Idol’ is popping up too: Joe Jonas, the middle heartthrob of the singing siblings, has also been announced as a guest judge.

Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry, Mary J. Blige and Shania Twain are also on the guest list, as previously announced.
