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.

A no-talent desperate "why is she famous?" like Mel B from a cra&&y manufactured bubblegum group from the 90's judges musical talent? Heidi Klum, a model who slept with a couple musicians, judges performing talent? Does anyone take these shows seriously?

whaaaaa?    

If I was judging some guys who actually have talent, and the only talent I had was working out and showing my boobs, I wouldn't like them either.

She was indeed booed. She also said some of the performers sounded really off.

If America has so much talent, why can't we get good judges? Good grief, I now worry that they'll bring back Hasselhoff!

Why are people saying "it's her opinion" or "she's entitled to her opinion" as some sort of defense. Of course she's entitled to her opinion. Nobody said she wasn't. However, the audience also has the right to express their opinion in response to her statement.

I swear people don't understand the concept of free speech. Free speech isn't freedom from criticism. If you don't like that people don't like what you say, then maybe you either need to think about about what you say before hand or get thicker skin and take the negative reactions like a real woman.

Who in the name of Sam Hill is Mel B anywho? Never heard of her and she surely has no right to diss brass music, which is somewhat the heart of New Orleans!

Not a fan of brass bands? She's from Yorkshire! Brass bands were invented there!

When the producers of the show are searching for judges to be on the panel, why don't they hire people who can appreciate all genres of music? Mel B is far too opiniated for her own good.

She was right on the money! Pretty sad when a Spice Girl is the edgy one! Meanwhile Howard Stern is voting for a dog act to win last year, hahahaha
