“America’s Got Talent” is back for its eighth season. Sharon Osbourne left the judge’s table at the end of last season, and in her place two new judges debuted.
Heidi Klum and Spice Girl Mel B. have stepped up, creating a four judge panel for the first time in the show’s history. As there are four judges, there’s also a slight change in the rules. To move forward, competitors now need be approved by three judges, as opposed to two.
Returning judge Howard Stern seemed to have the most fun with his new sidekicks. As could be expected, he loved Heidi. There was also a montage of Spice Girls jokes he made at Mel’s expense. It’s all in good fun though, right?
This early in the competition it’s hard to tell how Mel and Heidi will work out, but they seem to be holding their own so far.
All that really matters is what you think. For that, there’s a poll below. Were Heidi and Mel good for the show, or are they a bad fit.
Chris E. Hayner is equal parts nerd, crazy person and coffee. He watches too much TV, knows more about pro wrestling than you do and remembers every single show from the TGIF lineup. You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
