Mel C Jesus Christ Superstar

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!

Congratz gurl!

Perez Reviews: Jesus Christ Superstar

Sadly, our trip to New York has come to and end! Thankfully, though, we went out on a very satisfying note as we caught the new Broadway revival of Jesus Christ Superstar on Saturday night, which was wholly enjoyable! Far more so than we thought it would!

We had never seen the Andrew Lloyd Weber rock opera, nor had we heard any of the music. We went into it still burned by our recent experience seeing Godspell, which we HATED. Fortunately for us, this experience was much better! Much MUCH better!

The music was beautiful and very Evita-esque. It did not feel dated. And the new production was like Jesus Christ Superstar meets Ghost, only much MUCH better than Ghost.

The direction was wonderful. The show moved along briskly. The set and costumes were great. We were especially moved by the choreography, which was inspired. It felt like such organic movement and not like the bad modern dance we saw in Ghost.

Josh Young wowed us with his portrayal of Judas and showed all why he deservedly was nominated for a Tony award.

The one piece of the pie that didn't taste as good as the rest, unfortunately, was Jesus. The superstar tagline just did not fit with Paul Nolan's portrayal. While he was not bad, he was far from a "superstar" and was easily outshined by Young. However, a lot of that may just be due to how the parts are written. It seemed to us - at least in this production - that Jesus Christ Superstar is really Judas' show.
