Forget a breakup, Mel C is moving forward…and movin' on up, at that!
It seems as though the Spice Girl proved to be SUCH a hit as a mentor on the UK ITV show, Superstar, that she’s been signed on to be a full-time judge!
Mel C will sit alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber, Dawn French and Jason Donovan on the judging panel, as they try to find who will play Jesus in the musical, Jesus Christ Superstar!
The songstress stated:
“I am absolutely delighted. It’s been an incredible experience so far and I just can’t wait for the nation to decide who will be playing Jesus in the amazing arena tour of the production.”
Not only will Sporty Spice serve as a judge, but she’ll also be STARRING in the production itself, taking on the role of Mary Magdalene!
Sounds to us like the show is turning into Jesus Chisholm Superstar! Ha!
