The 37-year-old Scary Spice joins veteran judge and comedian Howie Mandel and relative newcomer shock-jock Howard Stern.
Mel B’s filling the spot vacated by Sharon Osbourne, who announced her departure last August when she claimed that NBC fired her son Jack Osbourne from another competition show “Stars Earn Stripes,” after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. NBC claims that Jack wasn’t even hired, let alone fired.
NBC’s president of alternative programming Paul Telegdy said in a statement,”This exciting addition of the dynamic Mel B to our lineup of judges promises that fans will see a strong, talented and opinionated woman match up against our equally outspoken judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel.”
In the same statement Mel B added, “It’s so exciting to be bringing some Girl Power to the panel!”
Mel B is no strangers to judging panels as she recently finished her second season as judge on the Australian version of “The X Factor,” which coincidently was created by Simon Cowell, who’s also responsible for creating “America’s Got Talent.”
Nationwide auditions for “America’s Got Talent” are slated to begin on March 4 in New Orleans.
Lisa Osbourne went on the attack yesterday tweeting:
“Either Taylor Swift is bat sh** crazy & causes every guy to dump her, or she has too high standards for these poor guys! droppin’ like flies”
She went on to tweet:
“I usually find out when Taylor Swift breaks up with someone before I even knew they were dating. That’s how fast these things happen”
Obviously Lisa is referring to Swift’s numerous breakups throughout the years, most recently her extremely short-lived relationship with One Directions Harry Styles – we’ll call it two months.
So where is this anger coming from?
Jack and Lisa’s relationship blossomed quickly, and much to Jack’s surprise, they were proud parents of a beautiful baby girl less than a year after they became an item. In fact, The two just got married in Hawaii last October, with their baby daughter in attendance. Of course, Jack’s parents Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were in attendance.
According to Sharon, Jack spent the night in his parents’ hotel room, because he didn’t want to break tradition. – Ah, too late.
Is Lisa upset because she’s now tied down with a child and can no longer play the field?
Why isn’t she attacking John Mayer, who is infamous for his love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude? Is it because he’s a guy?
Who knows, but there’s one thing that’s for certain. Taylor Swift is churning out hits based on her failed relationships including “We Are Never Getting Back Together.”
Here are a few of those wonderful guys that have come and gone:
Joe Jonas – inspiring the track “Forever And Always.”
Taylor Lautner – Inspiring the track “Back To December.”
John Mayer – Inspiring the track “Dear John”
It appears that these are not just failed relationships, but a necessary evil to feed Swift’s inspiration, so that she may continue to churn out hits. And it doesn’t hurt that she’s always in the news.
