Mel B Replacing Sharon Osbourne on "America's Got Talent"

0221_melb_singleIt looks like "America's Got Talent" found their new judge ... and once again, she's not even American!

Entertainment Weekly reports that "Scary Spice" Melanie Brown will replace Sharon Osbourne, who quit the show last July after six seasons.

Osbourne was reportedly upset with NBC for not allowing her son Jack to participate in their reality series "Stars Earn Stripes," possibly because of Jack's recent diagnosis with multiple sclerosis.

The former Spice Girl will join judges Howie Mandel, who remains for his fourth season on the series, and Howard Stern, who will celebrate his second season as a judge.

 “To know her is to know a very frank, strong, enduring entertainer. Someone who has a very strong point of view," NBC president of alternative Paul Telegdy said of Mel B.

"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.”

"America's Got Talent" returns to NBC this summer. Will you be watching?
