American Idol’s next guest judge: Kristin Chenoweth

August
28

Boy, Kristin Chenoweth isn’t letting any grass grow under her petite feet.

Not only is she up for an Emmy award next month for her role on the dearly departed Pushing Daisies, she’ll be the next celebrity guest judge on American Idol.

The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson

Chenoweth – who’s also got a spot on FOX’s Glee coming up – will be at Idol’s Orlando auditions later this week, according to People.com.

Now this is what I was talking about earlier this week when I harshed on the news that Neil Patrick Harris would be an Idol judge, too. Once again, I love NPH, but one role in Broadway’s Cabaret doesn’t exactly make him a singer.

Chenoweth, on the other hand, is a musical theater veteran: She’s a Tony winner best known as the original Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked. Classically trained in opera, she’s performed at the Metropolitan Opera House and recorded a number of albums.

Who else is excited to see the wee KC on the small screen again, even if it’s in small doses?
