Showbiz Arabia’s 2012 trend of the year will no doubt be celebrity judges. The latest superstar to jump on the reality TV bandwagon is Nancy Ajram, who has been confirmed as a judge on Arab Idol.

While rumours had been circulating for a while regarding Idol and whether they’d change any of the existing judges, it was only this week that the Lebanese singer signed a contract to appear on season two.

Shortly after, she tweeted: “All of you who were interested to know: a new member of #ArabIdol family — Nancy Ajram!!!”

Ajram, who has just released a new album for children, won’t be stepping in for any of the existing members of the panel; instead, she is joining Ragheb Alame, Ahlam and Hassan Al Shafei as a fourth judge. It is unclear, however, whether she will be appearing throughout the whole season or as a guest star in select episodes.
