Heidi Klum joins 'America's Got Talent'

"America's Got Talent" is making room for one more.

NBC has announced that veteran "Project Runway" host and executive producer Heidi Klum is joining the reality competition as a judge, raising the number of judges on the show from three to four for the first time in "AGT's" history.

It was speculated that NBC was moving toward a four-judge format when the network announced Spice Girl Mel B. would replace former "AGT" judge Sharon Osbourne in the upcoming season. Mel B. and Klum will sit alongside returning judges Howie Mandel and Howard Stern.

“Heidi has an amazing career across multiple media platforms, and has built a brand that is a force in the entertainment business,” NBC's President of Alternative and Late Night Entertainment, Paul Telegdy, said in a statement. “She has achieved superstardom while balancing being a businesswoman and hard-working mom, bringing a huge amount of experience, discernment and taste to the panel. 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.”

For her part, the 39-year-old model, industry multitasker and mom of four said in a statement that she's ready to see everything "AGT" has to offer.

"I'm really excited to join the panel of 'AGT' to see it all - from the ridiculous to the fantastic!" Klum said. "I love the surprise element of the show and not knowing what we'll see next and who will wow us. I'm also looking forward to spending time with my fellow judges – Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Mel B!"

The eighth season of "AGT" is set to launch this summer.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the easiest factor to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other people consider worries that they just don't recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you

    heidi has an agenda–everyone is changing their numbers and she manipulates the public by saying she's the victim.

    Of all the talented people out there - who KNOW talent when they see it - they pick this loser. Very bad choice. She certainly is no Sharon Osbourne. She's just a former model - or current model - whatever. Still not talented. No credentials.

    Seriously? There has to be another available person to do this show. The same people keep working and are on TV every minute of the day. There are so many other people whether known/unknown that could do this job. There's nothing wrong w/Klum but she's just everywhere lately

    I wonder if Heidi Klum watches The Walking Dead? I recorded it and will watch it tonight hoperfully. Somebody said Rick went back to his old town and met an old friend who was now crazed. Him and Carl and Michonne get into adventures there and fight some walkers. It's supposed to be a good episode, but reportedly doesn't advance the plot much.
