Mel B is taking over Sharon Osbourne's seat at the judging table of America's Got Talent next season, joining remaining judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel.

The reality TV matriarch parted ways with the show after she claimed that son Jack was discriminated against by the network following his multiple sclerosis diagnosis last year.

This isn't the former Spice Girl's first time on a talent show, either! Simon Cowell's pal was a stand-in judge on X Factor UK last year, as well a regular judge on X Factor Australia.

"Simon loves trying people out on his shows, Mel's already been a judge on X Factor Australia and it's too far for her to keep taking the kids. She did want to do X Factor UK, but Simon really wanted her to do America's Got Talent. She's outspoken and never afraid to speak her mind, she makes for good TV. NBC execs will be watching through their eyes - let's hope they won't be using the delay button on live TV," a source told Daily Mail.

Let's hope this feisty Brit can bring a ratings boost to the singing competition!
