As the mercury climbed to 99F in the Big Apple today, Sharon Osbourne was feeling the heat.
The America's Got Talent judge was photographed sweltering in a car, her iconic red tresses clinging to her forehead as the humidity in New York City reached unbearable levels.
The 59-year-old entertainment powerhouse hid behind cat-eye glasses and sipped iced water as she left her Greenwich hotel on the way to JFK airport.
What a difference a bit of slap makes: Sharon Osbourne looked sweaty in the New York heat but when some make up (and a talented artist) worked wonders on the America's Got Talent red carpet
But when she arrived on the red carpet at America's Got Talent later in the day, she was coiffed to perfection with rock solid hair and a perfectly painted face.
There wasn't the slightest trace of shine on her visage, and the kohl around her eyes was still in place.
A pair of gold earrings set the glamorous look off to perfection.

'So glad to be back and working with @NickCannon, @howiemandel, @HowardStern, and the entire @nbcagt family! #AGT,' Sharon said on her Twitter page yesterday.
