Former SPICE GIRL Mel B is so keen to pursue her acting career she has
turned down the chance to appear as a judge on a new talent show alongside
Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne.
The WANNABE singer - real name MELANIE BROWN - has bowed out of appearing
on Britain's latest pop talent programme, The X Factor, to continue her role in
the musical Rent on Broadway in New York.
Cowell explains, "We had a discussion with Mel B about being on The X
Factor but she has made a commitment to Rent."
