Mel B of the Spice Girls is joining “America’s Got Talent” as a judge, replacing the departed Sharon Osbourne.

The performer, whose full name is Melanie Brown, will sit alongside Howard Stern and Howie Mandel on the competition series’ panel, NBC confirmed on Wednesday night.

Brown previously judged on the Australian version of “The X Factor,” and hosted on the British version.

NBC has not addressed reports that the panel may still add a fourth judge.

Last season, Osbourne announced that she was leaving the show.
