The show must go on!

With years of performing experience under her belt, Mel B definitely knows how to handle a wardrobe malfunction – in this case, during a live show of NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

“I walked out on stage – when all four of us stand out on stage and we walk to our seats – and my zipper actually popped. I could actually feel my pants ripping,” the artist formerly known as Scary Spice, 41, told reporters Monday during a conference call promoting the show. “By the time I got to my seat, I ended up with a robe and my pants were off because they had ripped all the way down. It’s live TV so I had to sit there in a robe, which I found absolutely hilarious.”

The AGT judge, who recently sent 13-year-old opera singer, Lauren Bretan through to the live shows, said that the show’s eleventh season is bringing the talent – in all different forms.

“I think now they’re combining their talents,” she said. “They’re not only singing but they’re dancing, they’re doing acrobats, they’re doing a bunch of stuff all at once. I don’t want to give too much away. I think it’s nice that you actually watch the season play out and you make your own judgment on it too.”

Mel B, now in her fourth season and who appears alongside AGT judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, and Heidi Klum, explained that fans should expect nothing more than greatness from the current season.

“I think that’s been the case every single season and it’s in the 11th year and it’s still going strong,” the singer said. “People are still tuning in and still loving the show and I’m so glad that I get the best seat in the house and that I’m apart of the show still. This show is the show that keeps on giving and you don’t know what you’re going to expect. You just know that once you tune in you’re going to be entertained and you’re not going to want it to stop.”

America’s Got Talent airs Tuesday (8 p.m. ET) on NBC.
