Ever since Sharon Osbourne revealed that she would not be returning to America’s Got Talent, viewers have been wondering who could possibly replace her. Well, wonder no longer! According to NBC, they have found the perfect candidate in former Dancing With The Stars contestant, Mel B!
That’s right, fan favorite and and runner-up of Dancing With The Stars season 5, Mel B (aka Melanie Brown and Scary Spice) will be replacing Sharon Osbourne on the judging panel this season on America’s Got Talent.
NBC’s president of alternative programming explained the decision recently, saying: “I’ve known Melanie since she did Dancing with the Stars, and I’ve known her as a performer in The Spice Girls before that. To know her is to know a very frank, strong, and enduring entertainer. 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. The contestants will get a lot of constructive feedback from her and I can’t wait to see her chemistry with Howard and Howie.”
So, I guess it is safe to assume from last part of the announcement, that both Howie Mandel and Howard Stern will be back for the new season. I mean, we knew Stern would be back, but we were all waiting to hear if Mandel would be also, and that sounds like a confirmation to us.
What do you think of Mel B replacing Sharon Osbourne on America’s Got Talent? Do you think she will mesh well with Howard Stern and Howie Mandel? We know you have an opinion, and we want to hear it! Comment below to share your thoughts with us.
