NBC is ready to give America’s Got Talent fans their first look at the show’s new judging panel. This summer pop singer Mel B and model Heidi Klum join Howard Stern and Howie Mandel critiquing the country’s most outrageous variety acts.

A recent press report claimed that producers were worried that the German-American Klum was difficult to understand on the show. Mandel countered to EW: “Heidi’s English is clear and concise. If anyone has trouble understanding what she is saying it’s just the fact you are so mesmerized by her beauty you can’t hear a single word.”

While Klum gave a glimpse of her experiences so far on the show. “I just came from three days of auditioning for AGT in NYC and we saw everything from a woman juicing oranges on her bra to an angry drag queen to a funny comedian to a light dancer to a cat that had been trained for 5 years to sit still in a remote controlled car,” she said. “But sometimes my favorite bit is hearing Howard, Howie and Mel B give their critiques. I think I’m actually getting more wrinkles being on AGT from having so much fun and laughing all day.”

The eighth season of AGT premieres June 4. Here’s a first look:
