I Know Him So Well: Spice Girls Mel C & Emma Bunton duet – but is she struggling to hit the high notes?
Mel C has gone all musical after her stint on Superstar recently and is slap bang in the middle of recording her latest solo album.
The Spice Girl enjoyed a bit of a reunion with her old group at the Olympic closing ceremony last week but it wasn’t the first time she had sang with one of the ladies this year.
It turns out that former Dancing On Ice judge Emma Bunton has been lending her vocals to Mel’s latest West End inspired album ‘Stages’ and we have a clip of the pair harmonising with each other on the track ‘I Know Him So Well.’
The song is originally from musical Chess, which was written by Tim Rice, Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. In the duet, two women express their bittersweet feelings for the same man and at seeing their relationships with him fall apart.
The track was number one in the UK for four weeks in 1985 when released as a single by Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson.
Mel of course will take to the stage later this year, when she takes on the role of Mary Magdalene in the new rock arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar.
We can’t wait to hear what other musical numbers she’ll put her stamp on in her album, though we think she needs to stay away from ones with such high notes. She is definitely straining at points in this tune.
