mel b americas got talent booed Mel B. booed at 'America's Got Talent' New Orleans auditions“America’s Got Talent” has kicked off auditions for its eighth season, with two new faces on the judging panel — Spice Girl Mel B. and supermodel Heidi Klum, And it sounds as though so far, it’s been a little rough for Scary Spice.

According to TMZ, the first audition of the day Monday (March 4) was Lagniappe, a brass band that is extremely popular in New Orleans. After their audition, Mel B. reportedly told them she isn’t really a fan of brass music — and the audience went nuts.

The live audience reportedly booed Mel heartily, yelling things like, “No respect” and “Go home!” Mel B. wasn’t prepared for such a reaction and leaned on fellow judge Howie Mandel for comfort.

Yeah. Those “AGT” audiences can be pretty rough sometimes.
