“America’s Got some serious Talent! I’m really excited to join the panel of AGT to see it all — from the ridiculous to the fantastic!” Klum said in a statement. “I love the surprise element of the show and not knowing what we’ll see next week and who will wow us. I’m also looking forward to spending time with my fellow judges — Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Mel B!”
NBC and Klum confirmed the news today after she was spotted on set filming an episode in New Orleans on Sunday. A photo was leaked of the judges’ chairs, which were marked with each judge’s name, including Klum’s.
Klum isn’t the only new judge on America’s Got Talent. It was recently announced that Spice Girl Mel B would be taking the place of Sharon Osbourne, who left the show after breaking ties with NBC.
Klum has previously served as host on fashion competition “Project Runway.”
