Geri Halliwell - Geri Halliwell has no Viva Forever! regrets

Geri Halliwell doesn't ''regret'' the Spice Girls musical 'Viva Forever!'.

The singer went to watch the production - which was created by Judy Cramer and Jennifer Saunders and contained the band's songs - in London last night (21.05.13) for the final time before she heads Down Under to be a judge on 'Australia's Got Talent'.

Even though the show - which opened in November 2012 - is ending on June 29, months ahead of its' proposed closing date of February 2014, Geri still thinks it was ''good entertainment'' and was unfairly criticised.

Writing in a blog post, she said: ''It had a bumpy start but the cast and director worked really hard, made great changes, and I can hand on heart tell it's not s**t! - It's good entertainment! I went back again and again.

''I could say maybe because of this, or that, blah, blah, blah, but for whatever reason good or bad - it didn't work. I've learnt in life that sometimes things just don't work out, at least not how we hoped.

''But honestly for many reasons, I don't regret it. I got to meet and work with the fabulous Judy Craymer, the producer whom I hope to be a friend for life (sic).''

The 40-year-old star is sad to see the show come to a close but is grateful to all the people who put their ''heart and soul'' into the musical.

She added: ''This[the post] is to say thank you to all the people who tried for the Spice Girls, who had the guts to put their heart and soul into Viva. Even if something doesn't work, I admire anyone who tries, because a lot of people are afraid to.

''Thanks to all the cast of Viva, the musicians, Judy, Jennifer, the Spices and to all the fans and theatre-goers who came. (sic)''

Geri - who is joined in the band by Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Mel C - admits she was ''cocky'' the show would be a runaway West End success but now it's over she just wants to put all energy into her judging role on 'Australia's Got Talent'

She said: '' We managed to get one of the most successful Theatre producers to do our show! A great writer, our Spice music... I felt confidant - almost cocky it was going to be a huge success. It's hard to say goodbye, but sometimes we just have to ... So as I leave for Australia for new adventure to be a judge on Australia's Got Talent - I hope it will go well; I'm going to really try my best to find a star and have a blast. (sic)''
