Spoilers ahead for the June 29 episode of America's Got Talent on NBC.

Season 16 of America's Got Talent has delivered some of the most talented acts of the series to date, but not all of the performers can be Golden Buzzer winners or show up with an amazing singing dog. Still, sometimes it's the performers with the most unique acts who are the most memorable. In the latest episode, Melodie Blaize introduced herself as somebody who cuts clothes for a living, and she called on judge Heidi Klum for an assist that involved Klum's clothes getting snipped to pieces, and Klum had a fun reaction to it.

Of course, Melodie Blaize didn't cut off Heidi Klum's own stylish outfit that she wore to judge America's Got Talent, but decked her out in a bright pink t-shirt that I for one never would have expected to see on the supermodel. Klum was game for the challenge, dancing and posing along to Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" while Blaize cut holes in the shirt to reveal that Klum wasn't wearing much underneath.

While fellow judges Howie Mandel, Sofia Vergara, and the healed Simon Cowell seemed to be feeling varying degrees of awkwardness, Heidi Klum showed off her supermodel strut, tossing her hair and everything, to the point that Vergara joked that she was going to give her a Golden Buzzer. To contrast, Cowell hit the big red X before Melodie Blaize even finished cutting Klum's clothes into a whole new look.

It was pretty clear that Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, and even the amused Sofia Vergara weren't going to vote Melodie Blaize ahead in the competition, but the question was whether Klum was just putting a smile on for the audience while getting her clothes snipped away or truly did appreciate what Blaize brought to the AGT stage. Klum settled the question, saying:

I want to say yes to myself and to you. We were fabulous!

Heidi Klum also said "I'm sorry" when Melodie Blaize got the news that she wouldn't have enough votes to move forward in the competition. And honestly, as much as I got a kick out of Blaize's very unique act, I can't say that I disagree with Sofia Vergara in her stance that it wasn't quite an AGT performance. Still, I had fun watching her turn Klum's oversized and very bright t-shirt into something more fit for a fashion show, complete with Klum showing off that she can turn any place into a runway if she struts her stuff.

Unfortunately for any fans who wanted to see what other kinds of looks that Melodie Blaize would be able to make with just a pair of scissors and a t-shirt (or perhaps try to recruit one of the other judges to model), she didn't get enough votes to move forward in America's Got Talent Season 16.

Still, there were a lot of great acts this episode, and Heidi Klum actually used her Golden Buzzer on another fashion-related performer: quick change artist Léa Kyle, whose act was so impressive that it seemed more like magic than a quick change. See what happens next for the performers hoping to win $1 million with new episodes of America's Got Talent on NBC on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET!
