“America’s Got Talent: The Champions” is making its return with a new judge.
While most of the fan-favourite judges, like Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel will return for season two of the “Champions” spin-off, Mel B is noticeably absent.
Singer Alesha Dixon, a judge on the British version of the hit reality competition series, will step in and replace the Spice Girls alum on the judging panel.
Terry Crews will also return as host.
“AGT: Champions” is a spin-off of “America’s Got Talent” that has past winners, finalists, live round participants and other notable entries come back to compete in hopes of taking the crown.
Last year’s winner, magician Shin Lim, announced the casting news on the show’s YouTube channel Thursday.
While an exact premiere date is not yet known, the next season of “Champions” is expected sometime in 2020.
