'America's Got Talent': Heidi Klum Joins Mel B To Complete New Judging Panel

Heidi Klum has apparently signed up to be a judge on 'America's Got Talent'.

The supermodel will join Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and fellow newcomer Mel B on the panel of the talent competition, reported TMZ.

While the news hasn't been confirmed, a leaked picture of the set shows the four crosses in front of four seats, with the names of the judges beneath them - and one of those names is Heidi.

It seems Heidi signed up after last-minute negotiations and has already jetted to New Orleans for the start of the first round of auditions.

The variety competition returns for its eighth season this summer, and there was a vacancy on the panel due to the departure of Sharon Osbourne at the end of the last series.

Heidi is no stranger to television, having hosted 'Project Runway' and 'Germany's Next Top Model' for several years.
