Alesha Dixon joins America's Got Talent judging panel

On Thursday, NBC announced that Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum will return as judges along with newcomer Alesha Dixon, who is a singer and longtime judge on Britain's Got Talent.

'The cat is out of the bag! SUPER EXCITED to be joining @AGT #AGTChampions!'

Alesha Dixon is to join season 2 of America's Got Talent: The Champions.

She said: "It's official - I'm coming back for #AGTChampions!"

NBC's America's Acquired Expertise: The Champions will launches its second winter season with singer Alesha Dixon changing ex-judge Mel B, the community revealed right now through a video magic trick by season 1 victor Shin Lim. I can't wait to be back at my favorite desk with @simoncowell @howiemandel @aleshaofficial @terrycrews to help crown the next @agt Champion! Or, if you're going to do that, why not allow more people to advance and give us a little bit of a longer season? They also both served as judges for the first season of AGT: The Champions.

America's Acquired Expertise was created by Simon Cowell and is co-produced by Fremantle and Syco Leisure.

Mel not being involved may be due to the fact that she has relocated to the United Kingdom, following the Spice Girls 2019 reunion.

Terry Crews will return as host of Champions, a role he also recently filled this past season on the summer hit "America's Got Talent".

Alongside both Simon and Alesha, Amanda Holden and David Walliams make up the panel with Ant and Dec as hosts.

She joined Simon alongside Paula Abdul and LA Reid - but mysteriously disappeared halfway through the audition episodes, replaced with Nicole Scherzinger.

Although Mel - who now lives in the United Kingdom - won't be returning to the programme this time around, she had nothing but kind words for Alesha once the news was out in the public.

She remained on the panel for a further season and left again, this time of her own accord.
