Geri Halliwell - Geri Halliwell Scraps Plan To Perform New Single After Chart Flop

Geri Halliwell axed plans to perform her new single on the finale of Tv show Australia's Got Talent after it limped into the charts Down Under at number 94.

The former Spice Girls star had hoped to make an impressive chart comeback in Australia with Half of Me, her first new track since 2005.

However, the song only shifted 393 copies, forcing Halliwell to rethink plans to perform the song live on the final of the Tv contest, on which she serves as a judge.

Explaining her disappointment in her official blog, she writes, "I saw online... that my new single (just released in Australia) had come in at number #94... I laughed nervously, God that's really bad! (Deep down I was gutted).

"So for the final show of Australia's Got Talent - I asked myself what are my options? (They were expecting me to perform the new single) Could I still perform the song at #94? I could pretend it hasn't happened? Denial? Hide my disappointment? Unleash the fighter... Sing the song with 'magnificent' gusto doing my best to promote it up the charts...

"As much as I'm afraid to look like a quitter, (because we all want to look like winners right?), I'm not afraid to say - I lost! - Maybe I need to learn how to lose well in order to be a good winner? So... on the final show of Australia's Got Talent The Decider on Channel 9 - Winner or loser - I'm going to sing something that feels honest, just like home, for you and I, for all of us."

The Brit opted to sing a version of the Spice Girls' first ever hit Wannabe on the show, which aired Down Under on Sunday (10Nov13).
