Klum joins America's Got Talent

Heidi Klum has signed up to be a judge on America's Got Talent.
The supermodel will join Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and fellow newcomer Mel B on the panel of the talent competition.
Heidi said she was excited to join the show and size up the talent "from the ridiculous to the fantastic!"
There had already been rumours that Heidi was joining the show, with TMZ reporting that she signed up after last-minute negotiations and had already jetted to New Orleans for the start of the first round of auditions.
It also ran a leaked picture of the set which showed the four crosses in front of four seats, with the names of the judges beneath them - and one of those names was Heidi.
The variety competition returns for its eighth season this summer, and there was a vacancy on the panel due to the departure of Sharon Osbourne at the end of the last series.
Heidi is no stranger to television, having hosted Project Runway and Germany's Next Top Model for several years.
