Klum harsh with AGT contestants

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum admits she will give America’s Got Talent contestants a quick “X” if they fail to be exciting.

The supermodel admits she can’t stay interested in one performance unless it is enthralling.

As a result the America’s Got Talent judge is sometimes brutal with her opinions after viewing certain acts.

“I've seen a lot of things in the 20 years I've been travelling around the world, from any music act to every cirque de le show, to everything that you can watch in Vegas,” she told America’s OK! magazine. “You name it, I’ve seen it. I get bored quite fast, so if there's an act on stage and it’s boring, it’s getting an X quick.”

Heidi joins former Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown as a fresh judge on the TV show panel, as well as Howard Stern and Howie Mandel.

The group dynamic is ideal and the German star finds her colleagues hilarious.

“I love Mel, Howie, and Howard. They are a lot of fun and we make each other laugh all day,” she revealed. “Everyone is always on time, which I also love. It’s not really about us though. It’s about whoever is the act that is on the stage, but we are having a really good time.”

Aside from hitting the catwalk, Heidi has hosted Germany’s Next Top Model as well as Project Runway.

However she finds being a presenter a big contrast to sitting down and critiquing performers.

“It's definitely different than anything I’ve ever done before, but I do enjoy it,” she confessed. “I love looking at amazing, goofy acts all day and judging them. I feel like I have good taste.”
