    • She’s got years of experience as a judge as well as being really aware of culture (pop and high) and she’s got a lot of influence. And she knows how to put on an entertaining show. I definitely think she’s qualified for the job.

  • Having watched X Factor Australia, I can tell you that Mel B tops even Simon levels of honesty. She’s a fantastic judge, and has a very dry, funny sense of humor.

    I hhope she’s well received in the States.

  • WHat an idiot Sharon Osbourne is! The woman has no talent and is the most annoying judge ever yet she quits a 7 figure job? Looks like Ozzy’s going to have to tour into his seventies now! Poor guy!!!

  • Mel B. yes, Heidi Kum, no. A Spice Girl, who sang and does some acting, would be able to judge talent (music at least). Hedi Klum is a model and hosts a modeling/fahsion show. What does she know about talent outside of those two things?

    Besides, with four judges, how will the majority vote work exactly? It used to be two against one, doesn’t work that way now.

  • Mel B is a brilliant judge. I don’t like America’s Got Talent, but I might be watching this year.

  • I miss Sharon as well. Also I agree that Heidi may be pretty for guys to look at but has no place being a judge of talent. Went to the auditions last year when Sharon was there and then this year with these judges and it is not as fun. Also four is too many and three have to approve to move on. Seemed a whole lot more less talented people were moved onto Las Vegas compared to last year. The talent is just not the same. So I say No to four judges and No to Heidi. Mel B does know talent because she has talent so Yes to her.

  • I like the show, but it was strange that last season dogs won for Americas got talent and also for the British show. I dont know was kind of disappointed with the decision for the dogs to win. But, will probably give it another try. Not to sure about the two new judges, anyone know why Sharon didnt come back?
