New “America’s Got Talent” judge Mel B is living up to her nickname Scary Spice.

The singer-turned-reality TV show judge discussed her new gig with Jay Leno Monday night on “The Tonight Show.”

“I do like judging,” Mel B said of joining the “AGT” judges panel this season (she has previously judged Australia’s “X Factor”). “I do like giving my opinion, and I really, really like when things are crap and I can laugh, and when things are really, really good and I can applaud them.”

Does she have a problem telling people they suck? Nope. Well, except for the pint-sized performers, that is.

“The kids are the worst ones, that really kind of pulls at your heartstrings,” she said, “but everybody else, I love it — I love saying you’re crap.”

But when it comes to rejecting the child performers, she just can’t. “I leave it to the others,” Mel B laughed, “Heidi’s really good at that.”

Oddly enough, Mel B said that when it’s in Heidi Klum’s “gentle” German accent, “It doesn’t seem quite as harsh.”
