Mel B and Victoria Beckham go way, way back as former Spice Girls, but is it possible that we'll see two former Spice Girls on the X-Factor judging panel next season? Mel B [real name Melanie Brown] is currently a judge on the X Factor, and there were recently plenty of rumors bandied about on the real possibility of Victoria also joining the show as a judge.
Mel hinted at Victoria joining the show by tweeting a picture of her and Victoria in business suits, with the caption, "Watch out - we mean business ;)" Fans immediately took that as unofficial confirmation of Victoria joining the next season of The X-Factor, with fans writing tweets such as, "Hmmm… Have you asked Victoria to do X Factor judge's houses? This gives me 'We're coming' vibes" and "Please say she's your guest judge!!?"
According to X Factor procedure, each judge must utilize the help of a close professional friend when they're deciding on which acts they will be using during the live shows. Considering how close Victoria and Mel B are, it makes sense that Mel would pick Victoria, right? Well, she's not giving any more hints on the matter, although she didn't confirm or deny fan speculation on Twitter.
Mel B has already arrived in Newcastle for the next set of auditions, and the final auditions will reportedly take place in Edinburgh on Tuesday. After that, it's only a matter of time before we hear about the guest judge selection for each of the current judges. Even if Victoria Beckham doesn't get picked for Mel B's partner, there's always a possibility that it'll be another Spice Girl.
