SYDNEY: One of Australia’s top-rated talent shows has a new spice mix. Geri Halliwell, known as Ginger Spice when she was part of the Spice Girls, has replaced former bandmate Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, as a judge on “Australia’s Got Talent”, broadcaster Channel Nine said on Tuesday. The switch comes after Australia’s Supreme Court blocked Brown’s appearance on the show, ruling she had breached her contract with the rival Seven Network when she attempted to defect to Nine. The court barred Brown from working for any other network until January 2014. Nine bought the rights to “Australia’s Got Talent” late last year after the program was dropped by Seven.–Reuters
