“I feel very emotional right now, because of your story and what you did…” he began. “Hearing your story in light of what happened with Robin Williams — [it removes] the stigma from mental health issues.” He went on, “What a song choice that was. It moved me. I struggle, too. It’s just a really emotional time.”
“I don’t know what I could say but thank you,” said Mandel.
Mel B agreed, saying she “loved it.”
“You are at Radio City Music Hall performing in front of 5, 6000 people,” pointed out the judge. “That’s a lot and you contained yourself and you sang like an angel.”
