According to entertainment tonight, Mel B, and Heidi Klum joined the “America’s Got Talent” judging panel at the same time, also exiting the show after Season 13. However, Klum returned in Season 15 (reportedly winning a whopping of $3 million per season), while Mel B retired for good. What gives?
Well, a source shared with the news outlet that Mel B was replaced not because she was an incompetent judge but because NBC wanted to bring in a new set of faces. “It was a network decision. The show is doing well because it has no problem adding new people and making changes,” the source revealed. “Also, Heidi, Mel B and Tyra [Banks who also left after Season 13] they have important projects coming up that they need to focus on. There was no drama.”
Mel B and Simon Cowell also used to joke around publicly on air, with the singer once making a dramatic exit when Cowell made a joke about his personal life (for us weekly). However, Cowell made it clear that Mel B’s departure was simply due to the network’s plans to reinvent the show. “It wasn’t like it wasn’t working. Everyone who’s been on the show over the years, judges or hosts, has done a brilliant job,” he said. USA Today. “It’s just one of those shows where I think occasionally they just like to rotate the panel.”
