Former Spice Girl Mel B knows what America wants (what we really, really want) when it comes to talent on NBC’s hit summer competition show America’s Got Talent. And although she was a part of the biggest female music group of the ’90s (if not ever), the British beauty is a little clueless when it comes to one iconic film from the same time. Mel B stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test and also revealed the one music star she loved so much growing up that she convinced herself she was her when looking in the mirror.

'America's Got Talent': Five non-singing acts who definitely 'got it'

After eight seasons, it’s no longer a question whether America’s Got Talent. (American Idol, and The Voice, and The X-Factor also kind of answered that already.) But what makes NBC’s summer staple so special is that singing’s only one among many talents that can be displayed. Though host Nick Cannon arguably gave the night’s best performance by pretending to be a contestant named Larry the Mime who went off on the judges and audience (“Boo yourself!”), there were many great acts actually eligible for the million dollar prize. And sure, a few of them were singers — but you can find people just like them on any other reality competition. Here are 5 of the best premiere auditions from acts that didn’t just hit the right notes: READ FULL STORY

What kind of 6- and 9-year-olds have never heard of the Partridge Family? Unassuming DEATH METAL SPAWN with serene smiles, colored tights, and apparently the coolest dad ever, that’s who. Here’s the type of act that’s been making it through to Vegas while you haven’t been watching America’s Got Talent.

'America's Got Talent' react: The American Dream as defined by reality TV #Booty

Mel B’s laugh is infectious. Whenever I felt my interest in this show waning, all she had to do was let out a loud, deep, howl and I was back in. Heidi Klum continues to prove that she’s adorable and lovable. Both new judges have great chemistry with the guys. Everyone seems like friends and everyone’s having fun.

Which shows are 'exploding' in social media? Do you 'explode' onto social media while you watch TV?

I hope you’re not hurting yourself! A new study (DON’T FALL ASLEEP) suggests that social activity surrounding broadcast prime-time this April topped its level a year earlier by 194 percent.
