Mel B Joins Access Hollywood As 'Dancing' Correspondent

The Spice Girls reunion world tour may have ended but Mel B (Melanie Brown) won’t be out of site for long. The singer is joining Access Hollywood as our latest guest correspondent, covering the sixth season of "Dancing With the Stars," Access Hollywood executive producer Rob Silverstein announced today.

Fans fell in love all over again with Scary Spice when she brought mega-watts of Girl Power to the dance floor alongside former dance partner Maksim Chmerkvoskiy during "Dancing’s" fifth season. Her limitless energy and enthusiasm, which helped get her to the show's finals are traits the bubbly beauty will bring to the Access Hollywood stage.

"Access Hollywood has a fun energy that I am excited to be a part of," Mel B said. "I had such a wonderful experience on 'Dancing With the Stars' last season and I'm looking forward to talking to all of this year's contestants about their journeys and experiences along the way and dropping in on all their rehearsals, but this time on the [other] side of the mic."

Mel B will cover everything from behind-the-scenes rehearsals to post-show interviews in season six of the hit reality show, which returns to television on March 17.

"We are more than excited to have the 'spice' that Mel brings added to our unmatched lineup of talent," Silverstein said. "She has a magnetic and endearing personality and she knows first-hand what all these contestants are going through, which will make for some fun and candid interviews."

In related news, Mel B will be spending her time away from the camera working on a new solo album and her own fashion launch, expected to launch later this year.
