Heidi Klum becomes ‘America's Got Talent’ judge

By Lena Finkel,

The Project Runway host and star officially has a new gig! Heidi Klum has been drafted to join the panel of judges on the struggling America’s Got Talent.

TMZ announced the news earlier today, just one day before the show begins taping. Klum will be joining Howie Mandel, Howard Stern, and former Spice Girl Mel B. America's Got Talent has changed judges numerous times, with Piers Morgan, David Hasselhoff, and Sharon Osbourne previously appearing on the show. NBC had hoped to gain ratings when Howard Stern joined the cast last season, but the talent competition failed to gain viewers.

Although NBC has yet to confirm the news themselves, every indication points to Klum’s new position, according to E! Online. She even tweeted, “Going on a journey : )” earlier today while at the airport, possibly on the way to New Orleans where the show is taping.

Klum has previously hosted both the American and German shows of Project Runway and was also a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She has remained close with the company and has hosted the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show numerous times.
