But after impressing TV bosses with her critiquing, Beckham was invited to extend her Idol stint by taping another episode in Boston.
She will help the judges hand out "golden tickets" to successful contestants who will advance to the next phase of the competition, which will be filmed in Hollywood.
A spokesperson for Beckham insists the Boston stop is likely to be the end of her Idol journey -- because the singer-turned-fashion designer must also make time for her clothing line.
Her rep explains, "There are no talks of her being a permanent judge. They felt she was natural in Denver. She has Fashion Week coming up and she is focusing on that."
Beckham agreed to appear on the show after Paula Abdul quit earlier this month.
