Melanie Brown has been announced as the new '4th judge' on the hit reality talent show "The X Factor".
She is still known and recognized for her past role as a member of the world famous pop-girl group "Spice Girls" in which she was 'Scary Spice' but over the past two years her appearance in guest spots as a judge on the reality talent show "The X Factor" has earned her the admiration of the show's creator Simon Cowell.
Entertainment insiders consider this show to be the ideal media vehicle to enhance her profile and let fans get to know her as a mentor who is feisty, opinionated, beautiful woman who is not afraid to debate with Simon Cowell.
Since she left 'Spice Girls' she has become known for her solo career, her celebrity relationships and her becoming a fitness fanatic. In fact, in the view of many entertainment observers it is her beautiful body, in particular the way she has been able to develop a midsection that is the envy of many women that has brought her the most attention other than her appearances as a reality talent judge in which she has shown a true talent in identifying those with entertainment talent.
Simon Cowell is a man who can be described as incredibly 'prickly' because of how straightforward he is about determining who has talent and who does not and needs others who will not back down from their views.
One thing that Melanie Brown will not do is back down and she has shown a chemistry with Simon Cowell that indicates she will be a great fit on "The X Factor" and will bring viewers to the show both because of her "Spice Girls" affiliation and the fact that many men would love to see her get up on stage and perform which many expect she will do on occasion.
Don't be surprised if Melanie Brown uses "The X Factor" to launch a return to prominence as a singer and potentially provides a path for her into the world of acting.
