‘America’s Got Talent’ Adds Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum has been added to the judging crew for NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” which is expanding its number of judges from three to four for its eighth season.

Klum joins a panel that includes returning judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel, along with recently announced addition Mel B. Pair of femmes supplement the loss of Sharon Osbourne from the show, who ankled the skein earlier this year due to a feud with the Peacock over her son Jack Osbourne and reality show “Stars Earn Stripes.”

Klum is no stranger to competition shows. The supermodel serves as a judge on fashion design show “Project Runway” and hosts Germany’s version of “Next Top Model.”

Heidi Klum brings huge experience to ‘America’s Got Talent’ from her background as a model, designer, actress, TV host, producer, and successful businesswoman,” said executive producer Trish Kinane. “She knows what it takes to be a successful entertainer.”

Added NBC alternative division topper Paul Telegdy: “As we look to develop an act that will get the world’s attention, we and the contestants will benefit from Heidi’s international sensibility and understanding of what works in today’s global entertainment industry.”

“America’s Got Talent” is produced by Simon Cowell’s SYCO Television and FremantleMedia North America. Cowell, Jason Raff, Sam Donnelly, Trish Kinane and Rob Wade are exec producers.

Program returns to the Peacock’s lineup this summer.
