Heidi Klum And Mel B At America's Got Talent
New judges make their first appearance on the talent show…
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, NBC president of alternative television Paul Telegdy said of Mel B:
"I've known Melanie since she did Dancing With The Stars. To know her is to know a very frank, strong, enduring entertainer. [She's] someone who has a very strong point of view.
"We needed somebody who was qualified for the job. She's an amazing singer, dancer and a huge personality."
We told you recently that Mel had reportedly ruled out a job on The X Factor UK - although it was claimed that she was targeting the Aussie version of the show.
Meanwhile Sharon Osbourne is reportedly being lined-up for a return to The X Factor in the UK.
America's Got Talent is due to air on NBC on Tuesday 28 May.
