Heidi Klum: Why America’s Got Talent?

Howie: Oh, wow.
Heidi: Are you two an item?
Lucia: We were a couple for seven years — and then more than a year ago, we broke up.
Simon: Can I ask who split up with whom?
Lucia: We talked and we decided together because . . .

Howie: Wow!
Heidi Klum: Simon, what did you think?
Simon: Well, I’ve seen this kind of act a lot, and this actually is one the best ones I’ve seen.
Howie: I agree.
Sixto: Oh, thank you.
Simon: Part of the reason it is, is it’s not always about the technicality; it’s about the personality. And you’ve got amazing charisma; it was just a great act — perfect for America’s Got Talent.
Heidi: Howie.
Howie: I agree. I’ve never seen such a quick movement. I thought it was fantastic.
Heidi: Mel.
Mel B: You did it so slick. It was entertaining. And you know what? He really wants to get back with you.
Heidi: I think so too.
Mel B: He wants to get back with her. You guys are really, really quick.
Heidi: Three times, you did, and it was poom, poom, poom, poom, poom. I absolutely loved it. I’m going to start the voting with your first ‘yes’.
Sixto: Thank you.
Heidi: Simon.
Simon: You were sensational. You’ve got your second ‘yes’.
Heidi: Mel.
Mel B: Yes, yes, yes.
Heidi: Howie.
Howie: And I’m changing your three ‘yeses’ into four.
Mel B: He’s desperate to get her back.
Heidi: I know. You can tell.

Tyra Banks: Okay, I have a question. Can I keep the outfit.
Lucia: Of course. Why not?
