Get ready to bring your A game, because these celebs are absolutely judging you — well, judging your dancing, singing, and overall performance skills, that is. After gracing our TVs with stints on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon TV shows like Victorious, Wizards of Waverly Place, and Hannah Montana, several stars from your childhood have gone on to judge various competitions. While you continue plotting out a plan to get yourself on these reality shows, check out which of your faves have judged the talented people before you.
The Suite Life of Zack and Cody star isn’t as "judgy" as her High School Musical costar, but she did stop by Project Runway as a guest judge in 2015.
Cat Valentine from Victorious and Sam & Cat was a judge on two episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Grande said, "This is the best day of my life. I'm not lying," when she first appeared on the show.
The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Mike's Super Short Show star is also a kick-ass dancer; you might recognize her from Missy Elliott's music videos. Using her skills, Stoner was a judge on Dance Revolution and Dance-Off Juniors, which — fun fact! — Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide star Devon Werkheiser hosted.
Die-hard Selenators will remember that the Wizards of Waverly Place star was a judge for the TV special Make Your Mark: The Ultimate Dance Off, inspired by Disney's Shake It Up.
Coincidentally, Shake It Up's Thorne was a guest judge for Project Runway in 2015. She wasn't a big fan of the spaced-out straps on a pair of lingerie bottoms. Same.
Thorne's Shake It Up costar first competed on Dancing with the Stars and returned as a guest judge three years later for "Disney Night." Zendaya was also a judge for Miss America's 2016 competition, Project Runway: Threads, and Under the Gunn. Super judgy!
The Jonas actor was a guest judge on American Idol's ninth season. He also was a judge for the Miss USA Pageant in 2012, because why not?
