Mel B to Replace Sharon Osbourne

Mel B

Back in August, Sharon Osbourne got into a tiff with the people at NBC when she found out that the network had fired her son, Jack, from another one of their reality series, Star Earn Stripes when they found out that he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She later revealed that she would be leaving America’s Got Talent and didn’t really care what the outcome would be.

This left Howard Stern and Howie Mandel down a judge, but now it looks like a Spice Girl will be filling in for the Osbourne matriarch. Sources are confirming that Scary Spice herself, Mel B (real name Melanie Brown) will be taking the judge’s chair for the series’ upcoming new season. Mel B. has a few notches on her resume aside from her time as a Spice Girl; she appeared on Dancing with the Star in season five and ended in second place. She also has some experience as a judge, appearing as a guest judge on The X Factor in the UK.
