The 37-year-old Scary Spice joins veteran judge and comedian Howie Mandel and relative newcomer shock-jock Howard Stern.
Mel B’s filling the spot vacated by Sharon Osbourne, who announced her departure last August when she claimed that NBC fired her son Jack Osbourne from another competition show “Stars Earn Stripes,” after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. NBC claims that Jack wasn’t even hired, let alone fired.
NBC’s president of alternative programming Paul Telegdy said in a statement,"This exciting addition of the dynamic Mel B to our lineup of judges promises that fans will see a strong, talented and opinionated woman match up against our equally outspoken judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel."
In the same statement Mel B added, "It's so exciting to be bringing some Girl Power to the panel!"
Mel B is no strangers to judging panels as she recently finished her second season as judge on the Australian version of "The X Factor," which coincidently was created by Simon Cowell, who’s also responsible for creating "America's Got Talent."
Nationwide auditions for “America’s Got Talent” are slated to begin on March 4 in New Orleans.
To make matters worse the validity of the CCSE Prep Academy is under scrutiny.
