Things went left on last night’s (August 23rd) episode of America’s Got Talent when Simon Cowell made an ill-advised joke about Mel B’s wedding night. The ‘joke’ came after escape artist Demian Aditya tried to escape from a box he was cuffed to before the rope holding the box above three burning spikes was burned through. At the end of the performance, it looked like there had been a problem, as the box got stuck mid-fall.
Mel B hit her buzzer, and Howie Mandel criticized her because something had gone wrong during the performance, before Cowell also pressed his buzzer, saying:
Of course, Mel is currently going through a bitter divorce from second husband Stephen Belafonte, so it wasn’t a surprise that she didn’t see the funny side of Cowell’s crude joke.
She grabbed a cup of water and threw it at Cowell before storming off stage – check it out:
