Alesha Dixon joins 'America's Got Talent: The Champions' judging panel

A panel of America's Got Talent superfans will have the opportunity to take part in the voting process for the upcoming season.

Heidi was over the moon to be returning to the show and can't wait to work with Alesha.

Klum will be joining stalwart hosts Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell.

Alesha tweeted today: "News Alert!"

'The cat is out of the bag! "@heidiklum and @AleshaOfficial are joining @howiemandel, @terrycrews, and @simoncowell on #AGTChampions!"

She said: "It's official - I'm coming back for #AGTChampions!" Or, if you're going to do that, why not allow more people to advance and give us a little bit of a longer season?

Dixon will be replacing Mel B, who was the judge on the first season of Champions and judged seasons 8-13 of AGT.

Season 2 of America's Got Talent: The Champions will premiere with a new judge!

She has since joined ITV's Celebrity Juice as a team judge.

"Congrats my lovley you will have an incredible time", Mel B wrote.

To which Alesha replied: 'Thank you so much @OfficialMelB that means a lot! AGT: Champions doubled NBC's audience in the timeslot versus results from one year earlier (12.4 million viewers vs. 6.2 million) and was Monday night's #1 most-watched telecast with seven of seven original episodes ("live plus same day").

Alongside both Simon and Alesha, Amanda Holden and David Walliams make up the panel with Ant and Dec as hosts. We do really like Alesha, so it will be fun to see on this version of the show.

Although Mel - who now lives in the United Kingdom - won't be returning to the programme this time around, she had nothing but kind words for Alesha once the news was out in the public.
