I'm a big fan of Project Runway and its co-hosts Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn. They both bring a sense of sophistication, professionalism and credibility to the competition. In addition to her duties as host, Klum also serves as a judge, sharing her fashion know-how and experience with contestants in a straightforward and honest manner.
And now she's going to be a judge on America's Got Talent.
Sources close to NBC have revealed that the reality competition hired the famous model, during last-minute negotiations, to be the fourth judge on the show which begins taping the first round of auditions for its new season today in New Orleans.
Klum will join Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and new-comer Mel Brown who recently joined as a replacement for Sharon Osbourne after she departed at the end of last season. This will be the first time the show will feature four judges.
I love Heidi Klum, but I'm not sure I understand why she was chosen. She's a fantastic judge of fashion and modeling but I question her credentials to judge singers, dancers, magicians, etc. Furthermore, I worry that she might try to fit in with the other judges on the panel insomuch as her critiques might be borderline mean.
