Is it possible that the person lacking talent on America's Got Talent is one of the judges?
That could be the case with former Spice Girl Mel B (a.k.a. Scary Spice). It's been a long way down for her since the group disbanded ― now she's been reduced to tabloid fodder and occasional appearances on reality competition shows. Being announced as a judge on AGT this season could have been a big break for Mel, but she was recently booed by an entire audience for the second time in a month... and they're still in the audition process!
The show made its way to NYC for another round of auditions and a hopeful contestant took the stage to perform stand-up comedy. When he made a joke about how black taxi drivers are more fun than other drivers, Mel immediately hit the buzzer on him.
The only problem? All of the other judges were laughing at the joke. So was the entire audience.
"I found it really offensive. There was no need to do a stereotypical black joke. It was not funny," said Mel, amidst a chorus of boos from those in attendance.
According to TMZ, fellow judges Howard Stern, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel ripped into her for being too sensitive. When Howie asked the audience if they thought the joke was inappropriate, the unanimous response was a big fat "no."
Unfortunately for Mel, this isn't the first time she was booed either. During auditions last month in New Orleans, she criticized a brass band act and the audience yelled for her to "go home."
Although it may seem like the Spice Girl is simply out of her element, this is hardly her first time at the judging rodeo. She also serves as a judge on Australia's Got Talent and used to have a similar role on The X Factor Australia. Last year, she also had guest judging duties on The X Factor UK and Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model.
Do you think Mel will make it through the whole season?
