Heidi Klum Joins 'America's Got Talent' Panel

America’s network TV talent show just got a new judge and she’s pretty hot. 

Heidi Klum, the woman famous for leaving Seal for her bodyguard and being an all around head-turning lady pony, has signed on to appear on the NBC series “America’s Got Talent.” This is great news for anyone worried that Howard Stern’s grease mop of a haircut would be the only thing catching their eye this season.

The stunner’s intro onto the show is already in effect, with the network announcing the big news on Monday morning.

“I just arrived in New Orleans,” Klum told People. “It was hard to go to sleep last night. I'm not sure who will be more nervous though – me or the contestants!”

Klum, who comes with plenty of reality experience from her role as the longtime host of the popular Bravo series "Project Runway," joins Stern, the adorable Howie Mandel as well as Spice Girl and fellow newcomer Mel B on the panel.

She’ll act as a replacement for Sharon Osbourne, who, as you’ll recall, left the series after a fallout with the network relating to their decision to fire her son, Jack Osbourne, from the series “Stars Earn Stripes." 

NBC’s president, Paul Telegdy, released the following statement on Klum joining the team:

“Heidi has an amazing career across multiple media platforms, and has built a brand that is a force in the entertainment business. 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.”
