Victoria Beckham and Melanie Chisholm are not said to be involved with the plans – however, they might now reconsider. Both have been reluctant to put their names to a prospective 20th anniversary reunion for the last year or so, and with plans receiving a number of setbacks recently, it looks as if any idea that now comes to fruition will have to be in order to celebrate a 21st anniversary instead.

The rumoured Spice Girls reunion could be getting some big help from Simon Cowell.

And the winner is....
America's Got Talent came to an end for the eighth time last night (18 September) and between a magician, a comic, a collection of singers and a Japanese performance artist, one of the final six was crowned this year's AGT winner. It was a surprise filled night as the final performers slowly dwindled away, between performances from the guest entertainers on the night, as America decided who they would press the red buzzer on and who would be going to Las Vegas with $1 million to spend.
Operatic trio Forte and songbird Cami Bradley made it to the final
Just as a recap, here's the final six, incase you forgot. There was 16-year-old Collins Key, the magician, and the comedian Taylor Williamson. Then we had the singers, Cami Bradley, Jimmy Rose and Forte, an opera trio made up of of Fernando Varela, Josh Page and Sean Panikkar. Finally there was Kenichi Ebina, who at 38, the Japanese dancer/performance artist was the oldest of the finalists. Here's how things went...

Former Spice Girl Mel B made an error of judgement telling a New Orleans brass band she doesn't like brass
Following the news that Mel B was booed on America's Got Talent, here’s a tip for the straight-talking pop star… If you’re going to be a judge on America’s Got Talent, you might want to learn a thing or two about US culture before you start slating the acts that take the stage before your eyes. Unsurprisingly, Mel got booed in New Orleans when she told Lagniappe – a popular New Orleans brass band, that she doesn’t like brass music. She said that. To a brass band. In New Orleans. Pretty much the home of brass bands in the USA.
Well, it’s no surprise that the locals didn’t take kindly to the former Spice Girl dismissing their heritage. TMZ reported that the audience were screaming “go home!” and “no respect.” Too harsh? Well, they’re pretty passionate about music in New Orleans, Mel might want to read up on any other cities she’s planning on visiting, so that she knows who she might be offending.
Is Mel B set to judge on The X Factor again?
Apparently it’s between Mel B and Sharon Osbourne for the last remaining judge's slot on X Factor. With the Spice Girl’s performance last year and her upcoming spot on America’s Got Talent – we’ve got her down as the favourite.
With Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow set to return, Simon Cowell has got some decisions to make as to who sits alongside them. Osborne has confidence, experience and is not afraid to tell it how it is. Unfortunately for her, Mel B has all of that, and is younger. An insider said: “It is about getting the right chemistry on each panel and the best dynamic. Simon’s focus is getting the American X Factor right then he’ll sort out the British show. While Louis and Gary are pretty certain to return, it is still all to play for for the women.” Another source said: “Sharon is seriously back in contention, as is Mel — it could go down to the wire.” It would appear as though Sharon is on a charm offensive in a bid to get that role. She’s been seen out for dinner with Cowell recently, and we wonder who picked up the bill.

Some people just never change, and Victoria Beckham is one of them. At least thats what she claims, as she believes that she will always be 'Posh Spice.'
Despite the ongoing rumours circulating that say that Mrs David Beckham is doing her best to keep her distance from the girls - Mel C, Geri Halliwell, Mel B and Emma Bunton - according to a newly released snippet from an upcoming documentary about the girls, she is doing quite the opposite.
In the forthcoming documentary, Victoria reveals: "I was called Posh because I liked the nice restaurants, and the nice clothes, and that was my character. I didn't smile, even in those days. There was this very strong image. And I am very much that person, even now. I get ready to go out sometimes and I catch myself in the mirror and I'm like, 'Oh my God, I've turned into that person'."

After the great success of their brief reunion for the Olympics opening ceremony, the Spice Girls have another great feat to add to the CV- they have been parodied in a hardcore porn film.
The movie has been made by 'Juicy Entertainment', a company that seems to specialise in parodies, having also spoofed the adventurously named Tomb Raider XXX, Saturday Night Fever XXX and Zorro XXX. Their Spice Girls movie is titled OMG... It's The Spice Girls Parody, and includes romps with bods of the business, such as music execs, bodyguards, and each other, reports Gigwise.
The director hired look-a-likes to fulfill the role, Danii Jensen played Ginger Spice, Allie Haze was Posh Spice, Baby Spice was played by Jessie Rogers, Misty Stone took on the task of Scary Spice while Sporty Spice was played by Dani Daniels. A spokesperson for the film said "It's just a bit of cheeky fun. We hope the Spice Girls will see the funny side." They have even offered to send copies of the film, which will be released next month, to the real Spice Girls. However, many people are predicting that the company will have a lawsuit on their hands.

Paige is a Los Angeles model best known for her Maxim covers, though she was also the face of Escada Sunset perfume.

Is The X Factor in trouble with Ofcom? A number of complaints have been made to the TV watchdog about X Factor UK, after a 51 year-old contestant’s children were filmed watching from the wings and seemed to be pretty uncomfortable watching their mother’s botched Lady GaGa performance. Alison Brunton seemed confident that she would win the judges over with her rendition of ‘Edge of Glory’ and told researchers beforehand that she was ready to pursue fame now that her children were a little older (they were aged 14 and 16).
However, her audition was disastrous and left the X Factor judges unimpressed. Her dire vocal performance led Mel B to state “That should never have happened” and Louis Walsh to remark “It was a bit like somebody drunk at a wedding.” Backstage, Dermot O’Leary sensed her children’s discomfort and said “you want to be anywhere else but here right now…” Her son said “I’m never going to hear the end of this,” when he was asked if he would be teased at school. Under the broadcasting code, under-18s must not be “caused unnecessary distress or anxiety by their involvement in programmes.” 35 complaints were made to Ofcom regarding the way the children were treated during the filming of the segment, according to BBC News.
A spokeswoman from ITV has defended the use of the footage, by saying “The X Factor does not include child contestants but takes the welfare of any children featured in the show very seriously. It is a well-established format and contestants regularly bring along their family to support them, as Alison did. Footage of family members is only used when appropriate consent has been obtained."
Why don't more non-acting bands star in fiction films as themselves? I'm serious: I would love to see Oasis in an action movie (fighting each other, natch), or a Rilo Kiley love story [Jenny Lewis has dozens of acting credits, Jesse! - Ed.], or Radiohead with a special effects budget. I'd even take a chance on a Led Zeppelin Lord of the Rings knockoff, no matter how many elves were harmed in the making of it. And isn't A Hard Day's Night (or even Help!) more fun than a dozen musical biopics?
