Yes, the search is on for talented girls in the UK who could sing, dance and act at the same time! The Spice Girls will be featured in a new TV reality show where they will find those deserving girls who will play as the Spice Girls in the West End musical. The girl group - consisting of Mel C, Mel B, Geri Halliwell, Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton - are in the planning stage for a talent show designed to find versions of themselves for a new musical to run in London's West End theatre district. The show - rumored to be called Spice Idol - will see the singers sit on an 'American Idol'-style judging panel and dispense criticism and advice to hundreds of hopefuls.
This TV reality would certainly be exciting as a source of UK's Sun newspaper revealed:
This is an idea which appeals to all of the original members. It's a fantastic new way to broaden out the Spice franchise and cash in on their personalities, their story and their songs. The girls would have to work intensely on a TV show for a short period of time. But then they can launch a musical which could run for months or even years. It will take on a life of its own. The concept could even be replicated in other countries. The sky is the limit with this one.It is also reported that Geri Halliwell is spearheading the planning of the musical, which has been described as a two-hour "pop extravaganza". Hooray for that, I guess the Spice Girls are in it to win it again! Good luck on your new project! (Source Bang Showbiz)
