Melanie Brown is to replace Sharon Osbourne for the upcoming eighth season of "America's Got Talent," The Hollywood Reporter said.
Brown previously served as a judge on the Australian edition of "The X Factor" and as co-host of "Dancing with the Stars Down Under."
Osbourne announced her departure from "America's Got Talent" last August, alleging NBC fired her son, Jack, from the physically arduous competition show, "Stars Earn Stripes," because he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
The network has denied the claim, The Hollywood Reporter said.
