On America’s Got Talent, forensic mind reader, Colin Cloud, gave Mel B a chance to get back at Simon Cowell for all the times he’s annoyed her. Cloud told Mel, “This is your chance to get some revenge.” He asked her to randomly select one member out of the audience to assist him on stage while he solves “The murder of Simon Cowell… right before it happens.”
After Cloud took some time to read the minds of a couple of audience members, and the lucky lady that Mel picked from the audience, he then asked his new assistant to pick a knife that Mel would get to “murder” Simon with. Cloud instructed Mel to “plunge the knife into Simon Cowell’s chest” and, without hesitation, Mel thrusted the knife into Simon’s chest, continuously stabbing him until an irritated Simon finally said, “Okay, I’ve got it. I’m dead.” Luckily for Simon, the knife was rubber. And judging by Mel’s reaction, it was probably a good thing that she didn’t get a real knife because when Cloud told everyone that she happened to get the only rubber knife out of the available options, Mel screamed “No!” and there were some real feelings behind it.
Later, Mel asked Cloud why she had to get the rubber knife, which left Simon really questioning his fellow judge. “You know what is weird though, is that you didn’t know that was a rubber knife and you were prepared to kill me.”
