NBC has confirmed that there absolutely will be a fourth judge for the eighth season of "America's Got Talent".
NBC confirmed on March 4th that supermodel and "Project Runway" host Heidi Klum will be the fourth AGT judge.
"Heidi has an amazing career across multiple media platforms, and has built a brand that is a force in the entertainment business," said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming at NBC.
"She has achieved super-stardom while balancing being a businesswoman and hard-working mom, bringing a huge amount of experience, discernment and taste to the panel. As we look to develop an act that will get the world's attention, we and the contestants will benefit from Heidi's international sensibility and understanding of what works in today's global entertainment industry."
Klum is an unconventional choice, given that AGT is unlikely to attract any talents within her field of expertise, though as has already been covered with Mel B., the bar for judging on AGT is exceedingly low.
Klum and Brown will be joined by veteran "judges" Howie Mandel, who has attempted nine times and counting to lobby America to vote for an act he knew full well to be bad, and Howard Stern, the one man in America who seems to be rooting for a contestant on AGT to die while performing.
One can only hope that Klum and Brown together will provide a counterbalance (if not an end) to the previous reign of stupidity by the judges on AGT.
