Mel B returns for her second season on the judging panel of "America's Got Talent," NBC's top-rated summer reality-competition series that brings the variety format back to the forefront of American culture.
Melanie Brown, best known to audiences as Mel B of the Spice Girls, is a chart-topping musical artist, actress, author, television personality and groundbreaking entrepreneur. She recently made a triumphant return to pop radio with her new hit single, "For Once in My Life," an infectious dance track produced by DEEKAY Music (Jason Derulo, Lil Wayne, Diddy) and co-written by Melanie Brown, Tim Daniel McEwan, Lars Halvor Jensen, Gita Lake and Negin Djafari.
She was also on season five of the ABC hit series "Dancing With the Stars," where she came in second place with her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. She recently completed an episode of "Whose Line Is It Anyway" and participated in the current season of NBC's "Hollywood Game Night." On Broadway, she headlined as Mimi in a major production of "Rent" and appeared in a presentation of "The Vagina Monologues."
Currently a coach on the new Australian spinoff "The Voice Kids," Mel B also co-hosts Sydney, Australia's top morning radio Show, "2Day FM," sharing duties with Merrick Watts, Jules Lund and Sophie Monk.
In 2010, along with her husband and children, she also starred in a reality series for Style network called "Mel B: It's a Scary World," which let viewers see how Mel manages a multifaceted career and raises a family while still finding time for her husband. Mel also appeared as the volcanic personality and red-hot presence driving "Peep Show," the sensual, sophisticated and sly spectacle redefining Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
Mel B's brash persona at the core of the Spice Girls' global success helped the group rack up worldwide record sales of $55 million and achieve the Guinness Book of World Records status for both "Most No. 1 Entries in the U.K. Charts" and "Most Consecutive No. 1's for a New Act." The group's enduring popularity brought about one of the most successful concert tours of 2007-08 with the reunion trek grossing more than $70 million. In 2012, the Spice Girls reunited in London for a performance at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony and for the premiere of "Viva Forever," the musical based on the songs of the Spice Girls.
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband and daughters. Follow Mel B on Twitter at http://twitter.com/OfficialMelB
