LOS ANGELES - America's Got Talent is spicing up its judging panel.
NBC has confirmed that Mel B -- or Melanie Brown -- of the Spice Girls will replace fellow Brit Sharon Osbourne on the panel of the summer reality competition series. Osbourne announced she was quitting last year.
Mel B, known as Scary Spice in the all-girl singing group, will join judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel on Talent, which has been summer's highest-rated network offering. She has previously served as a judge on the Australian version of The X Factor.
