Will Mel B Replace Nicole Scherzinger On ‘The X Factor UK’?
The latest entry in the rumor mill surrounding who will replace Nicole Scherzinger as a judge on The X Factor UK is none other than Spice Girl and current judge on America’s Got Talent, Mel B. It’s been widely reported that Nicole Scherzinger is out as Simon wants to shake things up. But can Mel B really do both shows?
It will be tough as she won’t really get a break but if Simon can do it so can she. The bigger problem is her contentious divorce from Stephen Belafonte. Her doing The X Factor would mean that Mel would have to be in Britain for months at a time and because Belafonte has joint custody of their daughter Madison, it is doubtful that he would let Mel take her overseas for that long. That could be a deal breaker for Mel.
I hope they can work something out because Mel is the perfect choice. She used to be on the show back in the day so she knows how it works. Her bickering with Simon would make the show fun again. Mel is feisty and that would be a boon for the show and maybe boost its sagging ratings.
