Simon grinned as he detailed how he thinks Mel will get started as a talent judge for the new NBC prime-time series AGT: Fantasy League, set to premiere in early 2024.

The talent show judge became a victim of Mel’s antics, from being flooded with water to verbal slurs on Iive TV shows.

However, the 63-year-old insists he was keen to have the Leeds girl back on the judging panel after Sofia Vergara was unable to return to the upcoming show, which is filming in LA over the next few months.

When asked if he was nervous about competing against Mel for acts to win the new format, Simon admitted: “You know how Mel is, I mean she’s very unpredictable, very competitive.

“But that was one of the reasons I was so excited for her to be on the show.

“I mean, Sofia, we asked her, but she couldn’t. And when we talked about who would be the best fourth judge, everyone said: Mel.”

“She’s a lot of fun and really smart. She did such an amazing job with the Spice Girls and you don’t know what to expect from her.”

“So it’s going to be interesting.”

When asked what preparations he planned to do, he grinned: “Probably more than just a crash helmet.”

Cowell says that while he expects more drama on the upcoming show, he remains a big Spice Girls fan.

“I love this group. I mean, to me they were probably the best girl band of all time, and Mel was a big part of their success.

“I mean, like I said, she’s really, really smart and behind the camera. She is a great person. Really, really, really nice.”

“But she’s also funny. And like I said, unpredictable. And that’s what makes working with her so enjoyable.”

Cowell also revealed how his position as the cruelest man on television is being replaced by fellow comedian Howie Mandel – despite being nicknamed ‘Mr.’ over two decades ago. Nasty” received.

Howie was booed for his comments Some of this year’s participants came under fire for his jokes Vergara’s love life.

“I love it. He deserves it sometimes,” Simon said.

“I could have killed him last night when he said something to my golden buzzer like, ‘If it was just a singing competition, you’d win, but it’s not.’

“And it’s like, you know what? Keep your mouth shut. I just don’t want your opinion right now.”

“However, we are very competitive. And the good thing about him is that when he feels that way, he expresses it. And it’s pretty nice to see someone else get booed for a while.”

Adrian Stoica and his dog Hurricane were crowned winners the 18th season of AGT in The final last night.
