Cape Town – Mel B added voice to reason for her reaction to Simon Cowell during a live recording of America’s Got Talent.

ICYMI, Mel B threw her drink in Simon’s face and stormed off the judging podium after Simon critiqued an act to be similar to Mel’s wedding night.

Simon commented: “I kind of think it will be like Mel B's wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise.”

In an interview with E! News after the show, Mel B said her emotions were all over the place during the show.

The former Spice Girls member admitted she was feeling extremely emotional after contestant Evie Clair’s act, Evie performed before escape artist Demian Aditya.

The 13-year-old performed Birdie's Wings as a tribute to her father who has stage 4 cancer. The heartfelt performance made Mel think of her late father, who recently died after a long battle with cancer.

Explaining how she felt, Mel told E! News: “I go from that [Evie's performance] to Simon saying something so rude and inappropriate.”

The 42-year-old then admitted that she is a very “real and honest person” and “what you see is what you get” and that’s what the viewers got.
