America's Got Talent's judging panel just got a whole lot spicier!

Spice Girl Mel B is replacing Sharon Osbourne on the NBC reality show's judging panel, a source confirms to E! News.

Mel B joins previous judges Howie Mandel and Howard Stern for the show's upcoming eighth season.

Howard Stern is definitely returning for another season

In addition to competing on Dancing With the Stars, Mel B's reality background includes a stint as a judge on the U.K. version of The X Factor.

Osbourne announced she was leaving the series back in August after her 26-year-old son Jack was allegedly fired from another NBC reality show, Stars Earn Stripes, after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She said, "I just can't be fake."

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
