AMERICA'S GOT TALENT, NBC, Melanie Brown
'Scary Spice,' otherwise known as Melanie Brown, has reportedly signed a deal to replace Sharon Osbourne on AMERICA'S GOT TALENT, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The news that Brown will join Howie Mandel and Howard Stern for NBC's summer talent show comes just two weeks before taping begins.
Brown joined the fifth season of the U.S. television hit Dancing with the Stars with her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. They took second place in the show.
In April 2009, Brown joined actress and former Dancing With the Stars champion Kelly Monaco as original stars of a Las Vegas revue called Peepshow at the Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. In January 2010, Brown was selected to replace Marissa Jaret Winokur as the new host of Oxygen's weight loss show Dance Your Ass Off. She has also appeared on Broadway in RENT.
