Mel B

BOOED!!!

On 'America's Got Talent'

Rough start for Mel B, one of 2 new judges on "America's Got Talent" -- she was loudly booed during the first day of taping for daring to diss brass music.

Mel was in New Orleans Monday, along with Howie Mandel, Howard Stern and Heidi Klum.  The first act of the day was Lagniappe, a very popular New Orleans brass band. 

Mel told the band ... she's not a fan of brass music.  Bad move in The Big Easy.  The audience went nuts on her, screaming "Go home," and "No respect."

Mel became unglued, and leaned over to Howie, who comforted her.

Heidi did fine. We're guessing being really, really hot helped.

That was a bold move to diss brass music in New Orleans but hey, it was Mel's opinion and although some people may not like what she had to say, she is entitled to her opinion.
The whole audience and anyone else "boooing" her need to back off. Her opinion is just as valueble as the next guys, wheather you like it or not.
And Heidi Klum isnt that hot, she just didnt have the balls to stand up and give her true opinion. She is more of a "go with the flow" kind of girl while Mel is a "go with whatever makes me happy" kind of girl. Not saying anything bad about Heidi but Rock On Mel!

She was a Spice Girl. Did people think she was a connoisseur of good music?

Good for Mel, being honest with her opinion instead of sucking up to the local crowd and praising a crappy glorified marching band. What may be popular in New Orleans isn't necessarily going to fly in the rest of the country.

I was there and we were not pleased and she did get booed. Our culture is very important to us and to say that your not a fan of "Brass Bands" is a diss to our culture, but in her defense it was her first day and I forgive her. In my opinion, Mel B and Heidi did well.

If you don't like brass music, that's your right. However you are a judge and should keep your personal preferences to yourself, especially in this cir***stance.

GREAT role model...a black woman, banging
everyone she can, getting knocked up, UNMARRIED.
WOW..she is pure trash. What was Eddie Murphy
THNKING? I'd be thinking..'HOPE THIS CONDOM
DOES NOT BREAK". She is not even an American, but sure lives the American lifestyle. Thanks to being
a skank. Go AWAY you old hag!

Dumb thing to say in NOLA. Also, as a judge, aren't you supposed to be objective and constructive, leaving your personal opinion out of it?
