Simon Cowell is probably one of the reasons American Idol took off. He has a pretty blunt, direct opinion about how he feels about a performance, and his sense of humor is the same way. He’s quick, but sometimes his jokes get to somebody on a personal level in a strong way.
On America’s Got Talent where Simon has been a judge for a few years, he was watching a magician perform. The magician’s trick didn’t go as planned, he had some kind of malfunction. Simon was quick to jump in, saying “I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”
So Mel B. did what anyone in that situation would probably love to do – she dumped her drinking water on Simon, and stormed off the set. By the way, it was a live show. Check out the video of the “event” below:
