Simon Cowell was just being just Simon and Mel B stormed off stage in a dramatic turn on America’s Got Talent after her co-host insulted her marriage in a dark joke. When a danger stunt went wrong on the show, Simon experienced some technical problems of his own by disengaging his brain before opening his mouth.
You can watch the Spice Girl’s reaction in the clip below.
Just moments after the competitor Demien Aditya’s Death Drop revealed he had experienced some technical difficulties, Tyra Banks, the co-presenter, asked Simon for his thoughts on the failed performance.
He was quick to answer by replying:
“I imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night… A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”
Mel, who is currently going through a divorce with Stephen Belafonte, chucked a glass of water over her colleague before storming off the stage before he even had a chance to finish the punchline.
The America’s Got Talent Twitter feed, reliable source that it is, confirmed:
THIS IS LIVE TV, YOU GUYS. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN. #AGT

You can immediately hear Tyra commenting “Mel B is out”. She was quick to notice the fact that the viewers were enjoying the drama of “live TV that wasn’t staged.”
Mel B came back on stage to judge the second act.
