(Newser) – Ice princess Victoria Beckham did manage to crack a smile when she showed up as a guest judge for American Idol to fill in for Paula Abdul last week, but that's as good as it got, reports Radar. "It didn't go too well," said a source. Posh "tried too hard to be nice, but came off as icy and wooden." Abdul shocked fans last week with her decision not to return to the show.
