Victoria Beckham says her Spice Girls audition was ‘so wrong’ after accidental blunder | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Victoria Beckham said in a new interview that she was convinced she had blown her audition for the Spice Girls after feeling that her tryout for a place in the iconic girl group was “so wrong”.
She said: “Everybody was singing Madonna or pop songs. I came from a musical theatre background and stood up and sang a song from Cabaret.
“I sang Mein Herr, so while everybody else was singing Madonna, I was singing Mein Herr. It was so theatrical and so wrong for what it was.”
However, Victoria added that choosing the song may have helped her stand out from the crowd and land her a place in the band.
She added on the Armchair Expert podcast: “It obviously got their attention because they saw something in me; God knows what it was.

She added: “I don’t know what kept me going. I had a vision, I had a dream and I was never gonna let that go.
“Every time I got turned away I just picked myself up and went for another one, it was always about being honest and working hard.”
Victoria also admitted that she felt she was never the most talented performer but knew that to get the success she dreamed of, she had to work really hard at it.
She also described herself as a little bit of a “misfit” who made the best of what she had.
Victoria also detailed how the group came together and said that fellow Spice Girls: Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Mel B, and Mel C were all very different but worked well and complemented each other.
The star also stated that the personas that each band member had were not put on them by their then-management.
She said: “Even though we were put together, nobody put those characters on us so I always looked that way.
“I was the one that was always in the little black dress and the brown bob. Emma, when I first met her she had little blonde pigtails and a little white dress on, so we were all the characters.
“We just worked together individually, we may have been a bit misfitty but together we work well.”
