Here is the first video of Melanie C performing ‘Weak’ at NRJ Live Session yesterday. She sung Think About It, Weak, First Day Of My Life, Rock Me, Let There Be Love, When You’re Gone, I Turn To You and Next Best Superstar.

It’s been a great evening at the Bierhübeli! The former Spice Girl Melanie C gave her first concert after 3 1/2 years in front of the crowd with an live band. And as she told the audience it couldnt have taken place at a better venue.

Melanie C performed on stage and started with “Rock Me” and the Energy Live Winners joined the show. The 35yo presented some of her new songs from “The Sea”; featuring some danceable songs, but also emotional moments weren’t missing thanks to songs like “Let There Be Love”.

The crowd went thrilled with her well-known hits, which some people may have already forgotten. From “When You’re Gone” to “I Turn To You” and “Next Best Superstar”. The sexy lady in red leathertrousers played it all!

As encore only “First Day Of My Life” has been missing – of course she didn’t disappoint her audience. Every sound did fit. And to the chorus even the people in the back sang along pretty loud.

At the end Melanie C thanked all people for an wonderful concertevening and promised to be back soon. And we’re already looing forward to it, lovely Melanie C! – via MelanieCOnline

Melanie C did an interview to T-Mobile Music website. Our friends at @MelanieCNews translated the whole interview:

Is Girl Power forever? Melanie C – (for those who are too young): Sporty Spice with biceps and in tracksuit – remembering good times without X-Factor and explains, why she consistently refuses to participate in bitish “Strictly come dancing”. She was in polish version – with a new single, from a new album – out few weeks ago.

How was it on “Dancing with the stars”?
Amazing. It was really great to have all those dancers around me. Did you watched it?

Yes, but only yours performances. Do you like those kind of shows?
Oh yes, we got similar show on british tv called: “Strictly Come Dancing”. Everybody is watching it – this and of course X-Factor. This is our weekend with the tv.

Did they proposed you to take a part in the show?
Every year.

Why are you refusing it?
I would love, love, to take a part in “Strictly Come Dancing”, but I know well two persons, who were on the show – Emma and Mel B [other Spice Girls] – and I know, how much effort this program requires. You have to train really hard …

And that says Sporty Spice?!
This program scares me. You need to have a lot of courage, to decide to be on it. Especially if you didn’t have dance lessons.

But you’ve danced in tha band.
And so I would be more afraid. Precisely because I have dance experience and I’m athletic, the audience would require much more from me than from the other participants. I would have problems to deal with that kind of pressure.

Ok, let’s talk about something less stressful. Your new album “The Sea”, originally was to be released in 2010 …
Such rumors have circulated on the internet, but no, I was never going to give the new album so early. Moreover, it wasn’t also planned to release it as early as in the end it was. But the energy in the studio during writing songs was so great that we ended faster.

From where are those electronic sounds?
To the team working on “The Sea” has joined Jodie Harsh, music producer and club DJ. Jodie has already listened to the demo, she was undecided about the direction in which she wanted to lead the album. I was resisted, I have never recorded a electronic CD and this time I was not going to do that. Luckily, Jodie is very empathetic and with no problem, we managed to find a wording satisfactory to the both sides.

You’re not a fan of club music?
I’m a fan of music in general. I listen to very many kinds, even classical music. But as a composer, poprock sounds are closest to me.

The fan of every music is also a fan of football. “Rock Me,” the first single from yours new album, became an anthem of FIFA Women’s World Cup 2011.
Of course, I love football, grew up in Liverpool. Football is here an important part of urban culture. In the end we have a large club. Everyone in my family are fans. Since childhood, so I watched football – not just on television, also at the stadium.

Recently you were on a show for the singing children …
“The Big Performance”, yes. I was asked to share advices with the kids.

And what was your advice?
I met with them in a very special moment – the day of their first live radio performance. Radio is a specific medium, they can not see you, so all attention is focused on the sound, which means that you have to sound perfect. So you need to control the adrenaline and nerves, not to have taken control of the voice. So I helped them calm down, chill, to control stage fright, because I know how much it is needed. The second time, in turn, advised how to give a successful performance on the vision.

You still have stage fright?
Every time. Most of the artists has it. Also those from the first division, the absolute top – superstars, big names. I met in life maybe two people who claimed that they are not nervous before going on stage.

And how is your acting career?
I played for half a year in the play “Blood Brothers”. It exhibits on musical theater, but it’s more a performance of songs than a classic musical. It’s a very emotional piece, I was very lucky that I got in it engagement, especially considering the fact that I have no experience. What’s more, for this role I gathered rave reviews. I was really shocked how well received this art was. I would like to continue the adventure of acting, but for now I do not have any concrete plans. Now the album is a priority.

Thearte stage is different to play gigs?
Definitely. I was very nervous. I said that I had stage fright before each performance, but in playing gigs I’ve had some experience. I was a complete rookie, the fear was so much bigger.

What rookie? What about Spice Girls movie.
It does not matter. Have you seen this movie?!
Sure!
Oh boy. But seriously – it can be clearly regarded as an experience. I also had acting classes at school. Never before, however, not until now I have never assumed this responsibility.

Now that the Spice Girls name came. Three years ago you have come back for a while. Are you planning to still renew cooperation?
No, we do not have such plans. Next year the musical will premiere on the basis of our songs – but it’s all in the subject Spice Girls.

There was gigantic success with the girls, you handle well solo. The pop stars situation has changed since then?
I think so. Reality has changed, market changed. Pop culture change programs such as “X Factor” and celebrity magazines. Everything is much more accessible. People are aware of the mechanisms operating in the industry. When we started the Spice Girls, the pop was still present a mystery. Sure, there were gossip magazines, but if they were, two? Now it is full – and newspapers, and gossip sites on the Internet, and reality shows involving celebrities. Celebrities today is too many too.

Ar you convenient in this new reality?
First of all, I am very happy that the Spice Girls happened in the mid-90s, when everything was much more innocent. You know, for certain things that I know today and that build my self-confidence, did not have to seek the limelight – and with this in mind, I feel very comfortable.

Are you still friends?
What we commonly experienced, links forever. Some of us can not talk to each other for months, but that does not mean they’re not good friends. We will always be friends.

She’s older and wiser but Mel’s still Spicy: Melanie Chisholm on bulimia, motherhood and why she’ll never turn her back on pop

Melanie C is excitedly showing me some footage of her two-year-old daughter, Scarlet, on her mobile phone.

Smiling proudly as the exuberant toddler shouts along to one of her mother’s songs, Sporty Spice is juggling parenthood and her career with aplomb.

‘When I see Scarlet playing her toy guitar and singing along, it reminds me of my own childhood,’ she says. ‘My mum sang in a band and my stepdad played bass. There were always musicians in the house. It was a happy time.’

Melanie (the C stands for Chisholm) is a changed woman. In her formative years with The Spice Girls, she found it hard to cope with fame.

Saddled with an unglamorous, tom-boyish image, she suffered from depression and battled bulimia. Now, at 37, she is more at ease.

‘Being in The Spice Girls was amazing, but also very tough,’ she says. ‘I was young and impressionable, and I found it hard to read about myself.

‘There were lots of lies printed about me. I’d read that I was “gobby” and masculine. There were questions about my sexuality.

‘The tabloids were cruel about my appearance, and nothing can prepare you for that. You just have to fight your way through it.’

And motherhood? ‘People think I became broody because the other Spice Girls were all having babies, but that wasn’t it.

‘I’d always wanted to be a mum. My body clock was ticking, so I had to get on with it.’

Her career is flourishing, too. As a solo singer, she has sold three million albums.

Last year, she also become a successful stage actress, making such a strong impression in Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers that she was shortlisted for a Laurence Olivier Award.

She was back on the West End stage earlier this month, joining Queen guitarist Brian May to belt out We Are The Champions during a special performance of the musical We Will Rock You, in aid of Children In Need.

Despite the roller-coaster ride, however, Melanie is still proud of all that The Spice Girls achieved.

After a 4-year-babybreak Melanie Chisholm is back with a new album. In the FOCUS-Interview the Ex-Sporty Spice talks about her taking part in the London-Triathlon and the friendship to the other Spice Girls.

FOCUS Online: Miss Chisholm, you’re training for the London-Triathlon. You’re still Sporty Spice!
Melanie C: I’ve really always been active. As a child I danced. Later I went to the College Of Performing Arts in Kent. There I danced all day long. And of course dancing had been a big part being in the Spice Girls. Sport is an important part of my life and it brings me joy. The triathlon is a special challenge for me. I was asked by Richard Bransons team if I wanted to take part. At first I thought: Why not? But when I said yes, I didn’t knew yet that at the same time I’d be promoting my new album.

FOCUS Online: How do you combine both?
Melanie C: It’s hard. But even when I am on the road as a singer, I try to spend at least 20 minutes in the gym. Only to feel awake and stretch. Today, I was in the gym already before my flight at 8am which is a bad time for me. But no pain, no gain.

FOCUS Online: So you’re very disciplined?
Melanie C: Well I’ve trained very hard for the event. Now all that counts is to hold the energy level and to not have a burn out. Because travelling is really exhausting. Someone should invent air planes with spinning-wheels! Then even long flights wouldn’t be that boring. And nobody would have to be worried about thrombosis any more.

FOCUS Online: With “Rock Me” you sang the ZDF-Song for Womens Football World Cup this summer. Did you watch the games?
Melanie C: I have! I was live in the stadium at the England-New Zealand-Game which we had won and took us into the quarter-finals. I hadn’t been to a womensgame before. In the past I only watched it on the TV. It’s so much nicer if you’re in the stadium. The atmosphere was great. I’m impressed how popular this sport is in Germany.

FOCUS Online: What did you wish Victoria Beckham, when she gave birth to daughter Harper Seven in July?
Mel C: I had the luck to see Victoria one day before she went into hospital to give birth because I had just been in Los Angeles. I remember the day when she told me that she’d get a daughter. It was on the birthday of my daughter and it was the most beautiful message ever. She has wonderful boys. To complete this luck with a girl is something very special for her.

FOCUS Online: Do you think the Beckhams are shown in the right light in the media?
Mel C: I can’t judge that. Because I don’t read the gossip magazines. But I am sure that it’s not right. Because the most celebrities that I know myself personally are shown in the wrong light – myself included. The Beckhams are just a normal family. Okay, they’re not totally normal. They have this unbelievable life. But if you sit down for a cup of tea they’re just as other people aswell.
