'Who wants to sing with Adele?' Mel C reveals the Spice Girls REJECTED opportunity to sing with superfan at reunion show for fear she'd upstage the group
Mel C has revealed the Spice Girls rejected an opportunity to sing with Adele when she attended the final show of their reunion tour at Wembley Stadium back in June.
In a new interview, the Northern Star hitmaker, 45, admitted the girlband opted against sharing the stage with the award-winning musician, 31, for fear she'd upstage their vocals.
Sporty Spice playfully shared: 'I heard a rumour that she did want to come up and do 2 Become 1. But we said no because, who wants to sing with Adele?'

The Spice Girls went out in a blaze of glory for their final reunion show at the famous London venue, marking Mel, Emma Bunton, Mel B and Geri Horner's first performance together since 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony.
Songstress Mel told The Sun she'd like to perform with her bandmembers for another tour in the future as they want to reach individuals from 'all over the world'.
Fans were left disappointed as Posh Spice Victoria Beckham decided to sit out of the reunion tour due to work commitments.

'Nervous': Sporty Spice admitted she understands why Victoria Beckham didn't take part in the tour, claiming she was 'petrified' when they performed at the 2012 Olympics (pictured)
Insisting she understands why her close pal didn't take part in the iconic tour, she shared: 'Victoria s**t herself when we did it, not literally, but she was very nervous and petrified when we were at the Olympic Stadium... It’s completely understandable. Her life has changed so much and she has worked so hard.'
Claiming the fashion designer, 45, would be on board to reunite in Glastonbury, Mel added: 'She f***ing would. She would. She’d love to do Glastonbury. The truth behind the rumour is we’ve never even been approached.'
During their last performance, superfan Adele danced her heart out to Spice Up Your Life with friends in a VIP area, and revealed she 'got drunk' with the group after the show.
The Someone Like You belter has long spoken of her love of the Spice Girls and uploaded an Instagram post following the show where she paid tribute to them as 'British legends' after sharing a video of herself dancing around to one of their smash hit songs.
She wrote at the time: 'Oiii last time I saw the Spice Girls at Wembley was 21 years ago! Tonight with my nearest and dearest I cried, laughed, screamed, danced, reminisced and fell back in love with my 10 year old self.
'It’s no secret how much I love them, how much they inspired me to run for my life and never look back.
'I finally got to meet Ginger, I got drunk with the girls and quite frankly I can’t believe how far I’ve come.
'Thank you for the madness I get to live, I couldn’t have got here without you 5 BRITISH legends! I love you!'

Taking to Instagram the songstress posted a black and white of herself alongside bandmates Mel, Geri, Emma and Victoria in their 90s heyday, but noted that 'five girls' would be headlining the stadium in London.
However Victoria dashed hopes she would make an appearance during the last night of the tour, as she was pictured arriving at Sergio Ramos and Pilar Rubio's wedding with husband David in Seville.
Reminiscing on the group's early days, Mel B wrote a post saying it as an 'honour' to share the stage again with her fellow Spice Girls.
Delighted: The group have been touring England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland with their 2019 Spice World tour and reunited at the UK's biggest arena for the first time in 21 years
She wrote: 'In 1994 five girls answered an advert in The Stage newspaper for a new girl band. 25 years later, those five girls headline Wembley Stadium, for the third night in a row!
'Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that all these years later we would be playing to sold out stadiums, performing what I believe to be the best show we’ve ever done.
'It’s an honour and a privilege to share a stage with my fellow Spices, @therealgerihalliwell @officialmelb @emmaleebunton and the gorgeous @victoriabeckham will always be missed (hopefully someday to return)!'
Success story: The newly-reformed four-piece will head Down Under to tour in Australia in February next year
