Joe Jonas, Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain, and maybe Kelly Clarkson are Idol guest judges

A few more guest judges have been added to the roster for American Idol 9‘s call-back auditions, joining previously confirmed guest judges Katy Perry and Victoria Beckham.

The latest confirmed guest judge is Joe Jonas, the middle Jonas Brother, who will appear in Dallas next Monday. Kelly Clarkson, the first American Idol winner, will also be on board at some point according to the L.A. Times, although an Entertainment Weekly source is skeptical about that.

Monday, Mary J. Blige guest judged the Atlanta auditions, and country singer Shania Twain is expected to appear at the Chicago auditions at the end of the month.
