"Where Terry [Crews] is pretty much sitting here, that's where it was," Simon said from the courtyard of his Malibu home as he pointed to the AGT host. "We actually do have it on security cameras," he added.

"Why would you keep that?" quizzed Today star Natalie Morales, before Howie Mandel joked: "Because we're having a watch party after this," to which Simon jokily responded: "Yeah, we’re going to cheer ourselves up."

Heidi Klum then asked Simon: "Where was the blood coming from?" With Simon revealing: "Everywhere! My elbows… there are blood marks somewhere," he added pointing again at the ground.
