(LOS ANGELES) — America’s Got Talent is replacing former judge Sharon Osbourne with another British female celebrity.
E! News reports Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown, a.k.a. “Scary Spice,” has been hired to step in for Osbourne, who served as a judge on the NBC competition for six seasons before confirming her departure on the 2012 season finale.
Howie Mandel and Howard Stern are expected to return to the judges’ table for the next season of America’s Got Talent. Entertainment Weekly, which is also reporting the addition of Brown to America’s Got Talent, says the show may add a fourth judge, too.
America’s Got Talent will likely return this summer.
