It’s official: the fourth and final judge for the eight season of America’s Got Talent will be Heidi Klum; the American-German supermodel and fashion presenter will preside over the talents America has to offer alongside her fellow judges.
But we’ll let Klum introduce her new colleagues; the star tweeted to her fans, clearly unable to contain herself. "Excited 2 join @HowardStern @howiemandel @OfficialMelB & @NickCannon on @nbcagt as new judge! Will be so fun," Klum posted. "As we look to develop an act that will get the world's attention, we and the contestants will benefit from Heidi's international sensibility and understanding of what works in today's global entertainment industry," NBC president of alternative programming, Paul Telegdy, said in a statement. Fans of Project Runway needn’t worry; the show began its 11th season in January and she remains on board as judge and host, so she won’t be going anywhere. Talking of her fashion exploits, Germany’s Next Top Model – also hosted and judged by Klum – will finally be getting its premiere… in Germany.
Filming in Dubai delayed things, but after two months, it’s finally there. “It all started when I thought why not invite Heidi and the whole production team here in Dubai. I felt that I was part of their family since I have been working with them for six consecutive years and wanted to show them what Dubai was really like. So, after a series of discussions, we finally made it happen,” said Dubai-based fashion designer, Furne One.
