Gabrielle Union To Replace Mel B On ‘America’s Got Talent’

Get ready for a big shake up on America’s Got Talent next season as Mel B and Heidi Klum have both dropped from the judging panel.

The Spice Girl has been a judge on the show for the last six seasons but there have long been whispers that she wouldn’t be invited back for the 14th season because her headline-making personal problems and marital issues are huge distractions.

Instead, Variety reports that their chairs will be filled by dancer Julianne Hough and actress Gabrielle Union who will join regulars Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel.

Hosting duties will also be changing as Tyra Banks is being replaced by actor Terry Crews, who has been hosting America’s Got Talent: The Champions.

“One of the many secrets to the success and longevity of America’s Got Talent is its fearless drive to reinvent itself,” said Meredith Ahr, president of the alternative and reality group at NBC Entertainment.

“The next evolution of the format brings in fresh expert eyes to join Simon and Howie on the panel. Gabrielle and Julianne are two of the most aspirational women in the business, on top of being electric entertainers with talent across disciplines.

“I am excited to see how their knowledge, compassion and sheer joy enhance the experience for acts and viewers alike. As their partner in crime, host Terry Crews will continue to light up the stage with his quick wit and unending charm.”

Hough is a two-time professional dance champion on Dancing with the Stars and has been a judge on series.

Union will next star in and exec produce the Bad Boys spinoff series L.A.’s Finest – which premieres May 13 on Spectrum Originals network.

Cremieux to Replace SoHo Unit With Hudson Yards Store

NEW YORK — Count Cremieux as the latest upscale tenant to sign on at Hudson Yards.
The French men’s wear brand, which got its start in Saint-Tropez in 1976, will open an 800-square-foot store at The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards, a key element of the neighborhood that is being built on Manhattan’s far West Side. When completed, Hudson Yards will include more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, more than 100 stores, a collection of restaurants, 4,000 residences, a 750-seat public school, a 200-room Equinox hotel and 14 acres of public open space.
The Cremieux store is expected to open in mid-March and will join anchor Neiman Marcus as well as Dior, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Coach, Kiehl’s, AG Jeans by Adriano Goldschmied and Forty-Five-Ten.
At Hudson Yards, the store will be located near Cartier, Dior, Fendi and other brands with a similar aesthetic, said Stephane Cremieux, chief executive officer of Cremieux and son of founder Daniel Cremieux.
The shop will replace the 700-square-foot, two-level unit at 65 Mercer Street that closed in June. That store had been open for four years but the lease was up for renewal and the landlord would not reduce the rent, Cremieux said.
