TMZ first broke the news that Klum was being added to the panel, publishing a photo from the set of last week's New Orleans auditions showing Klum's first name on the judges' table, which also includes the names of Howie Mandel, Mel B. and Howard Stern. It's the first time the reality show has featured a four-person panel.
Klum currently hosts Project Runway on Lifetime and Germany's Next Top Model.
"America's Got some serious Talent! I'm really excited to join the panel of AGT to see it all — from the ridiculous to the fantastic!" Klum said in a statement. "I love the surprise element of the show and not knowing what we'll see next and who will wow us."
Do you think Klum will make a good judge?
