Adorable America’s Got Talent fan fav, Celine Tam, returned for the live show this week and, once again, the 9-year old blew the judges away with her small exterior, yet insanely big voice as she belted Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey’s “When You Believe”. However, can you believe there was one judge who was slightly unimpressed?
Mel B told Tam, “You are very brave to be up there on that stage and just be singing if your element, okay? But tonight I think the song was just too big for you,” to which Simon Cowell immediately screamed into his mic, “Boo!” Cowell continued to boo and make sounds into his mic over Mel until she eventually just told him to “shutup.” But Cowell was not feeling Mel’s vibes and rushed to the mini Celine Dion’s defense. “Mel, you gotta remember, this girl is 9 years old,” Cowell stated. “You were standing on what looked like a clam that was going to eat you as well. So, that's a lot for a 9-year-old to have to put up with on a live show. So you did great.”
In the end, despite Mel B’s remarks, this cutie proved that she’s already got the thick skin one needs to make it in this biz when she shared, “I just want America to vote for me… and I hope America will come to me.”
