The "America's Got Talent" live rounds kicked off Tuesday at New York's Radio City Music Hall, but according to veteran judge Howie Mandel, the real fun started after the show.
During a Wednesday morning visit to TODAY, Mandel teased about the post-"Talent" party back at his hotel.
"It was a threesome!" he boasted. "I invited Heidi (Klum) and Mel (B) back to the hotel for a nightcap."
TODAY guest host Mel B said the celebration went on until 2:30 in the morning — well, that's when she left. But it seems there was one "Talent" judge who missed out on the fun all together. Didn't Howard Stern get an invite?
"No," Mandel said, as if stating the obvious. "Heidi Klum and Mel B are sitting there and you say, 'Would you like to come back to the hotel?' Do I need Howard?!"
As for the on-air fun before the party, Mandel had a clear favorite from Tuesday's show — acro-balancers The KriStef Brothers.
"Amazing," he said of the duo.
That's also Mandel's take on his own new endeavor, "Deal With It." Mandel serves as executive producer on the TBS game show that sees him and other celebrities convince people to secretly do their bidding for a chance to win some cash.

The series premiere of "Deal With It" airs Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. on TBS. The next "America's Got Talent" live show kicks off the same night at 9 on NBC.
