The singer will join judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel for AGT's eighth season. Brown (aka "Scary Spice") previously served as a judge on the Australian version of The X Factor for two seasons (FremantleMedia produces both AGT and X Factor).
Osbourne departed the show after last season after a dispute with NBC involving her son, Jack.
AGT averaged a 3.2 rating with adults 18-49 and 10.9 million viewers in its three weekly telecasts this summer, down 11% and 16%, respectively from last year, despite the addition of Stern, which was expected to boost ratings.
