After a rather wretched performance from one of the contestants, Cowell cracked a joke about Mel's marriage to Stephen Belafonte.
Mel B sensationally threw a glass of water over Simon Cowell and stormed off the set of ‘America’s Got Talent’ this week, after the music mogul cracked a joke about the former Spice Girl’s troubled marriage.
Cowell looked on from the judging panel with Mel as the magician contestant Demian Aditya’s attempted trick went awry on Tuesday night (August 22nd) when his ‘dangerous’ attempt to escape from a locked suspended box ended with nothing happening. When it came to the remarks afterwards, he couldn’t resist a dig at his colleague’s expense.
“I kind of imagined this would be like Mel B's wedding night,” Cowell cracked. “A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”

‘America’s Got Talent’ host Nick Cannon has dropped a strong hint that he’s about to walk away from the show, posting a lengthy update via his official Facebook page mentioning “dignity” and “integrity”.
The comedian, who has hosted the NBC reality competition for 12 seasons since 2009, claims that networks execs are threatening to fire him over a joke he made about race in a recent Showtime stand-up comedy special.
“After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke,” the 36 year old star posted on Monday (February 13th).
