America's Got Talent is swapping out one Brit for another.
After Sharon Osbourne quit the show last year, NBC has announced that she will be replaced at the judges table with Mel B, a.k.a. Scary Spice. She will be joined by Howard Stern and Howie Mandel, who are both returning this season.
While the selection may appear to be somewhat random, Mel B actually has plenty of experience from taking on identical roles overseas. She served as a judge for two seasons on the Australian version of The X Factor and guest hosted on the show's UK version.
“To know her is to know a very frank, strong, enduring entertainer. Someone who has a very strong point of view," said NBC president of alternative Paul Telegdy. "We needed somebody who was qualified for the job. She’s an amazing singer, dancer and a huge personality. The contestants will get a lot of constructive feedback from her and I can’t wait to see her chemistry with Howard and Howie.”
