Last month, it was confirmed that Spice Girl Melanie “Mel B” Brown would be the third of four judges on America’s Got Talent. And this weekend, TMZ.com has confirmed the fourth judge is Heidi Klum.
Season eight starts taping on Monday and news of Klum’s hiring broke when someone working on the set surreptitiously took a photo and leaked it to the site. According to production sources, Klum signed her deal at the last minute and headed to New Orleans where the first round of auditions are being held.
Sharon Osbourne quit publicly towards the end of season seven. And although NBC has not officially confirmed the panel as it will be broadcast in May, it looks very much like Klum will join Mel B, Howie Mandel, and Howard Stern in the new line-up.
Above is the photo confirming Klum’s place, in which you can see “Heidi” below one of the “X”s.
