Heidi Klum joins "America's Got Talent"

"America's Got Talent" has another new judge.

Supermodel Heidi Klum has signed on to the NBC talent competition. She confirmed the news on Monday via Twitter:

TMZ was first to report the news, posting a photo from the set, which features the name "Heidi" under one of the judge's seats.

Klum recently landed in New Orleans to begin shooting auditions, telling People: "I just arrived in New Orleans, and it was hard to go to sleep last night. I'm not sure who will be more nervous though - me or the contestants!"

Klum will sit alongside Howie Mandel, Howard Stern and newly-added judge, Mel B of The Spice Girls. Sharon Osbourneparted ways with the show after last season.

The 39-year-old Klum isn't a stranger to TV. She previously served as a judge on "Project Runway" and Germany's "Next Top Model."
