Sweet, motherly Paula Abdul, she's not -- but should American Idol need a snarky replacement after Simon Cowell leaves, the show shouldn’t look any further than last night's guest judge, rocker Katy Perry.

The I Kissed A Girl singer was a strong panelist on Tuesday evening's tryout show, displaying the swagger and musical know-how that's made her one of  brightest young artists in the industry. Perry, fittingly, ran Hot 'N' Cold, directing plenty of chills toward judge Kara DioGuardi, even threatening to toss a soda in her face at one point.
