America’s Got Talent is back!
The eighth season of America’s Got Talent got off the ground this week on NBC.
Former Spice Girl and Dancing with the Stars participant Melanie Brown, more often called Mel B, and Heidi Klum joined returning judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel. Melanie and her supermodel judging colleague replace Sharon Osborne, who decided to leave AGT at the end of last season. And this is the first time the show has had a four-strong judging panel.
Performers to kick off the season included “Rattlesnake Man” David Weathers from Florida, and Anan Christine, a 10-year-old who melted hearts and dropped jaws when she jumped up to the piano to give her rendition of the Animals’ House of the Rising Sun. She was put through to the next round without any hesitation by everyone on the panel.
Summing up afterwards, Mel B said: “I’ve been a fan for years. I’ve sat and watched with my whole entire family, so it’s like a real honor to be finally on that judging panel.”
