Melody Thornton Sings Opera [Video]

Melody Thornton

Now here’s something you don’t hear every day: a former Pussycat Doll singing opera. Melody Thornton showed off her powerful pipes, performing “Habanera” from the famed opera Carmen during the first week of “Popstar to Operastar,” a British TV show where eight pop stars compete against each other for the title.

“Carmen is a very flirtatious maneater basically. She sounds very similar to me,” joked Melody, whose sultry version of the tune earned her mostly positive reviews from the judges and kept her in the competition for another week.

Watch her take on the daunting task and face her critics.

    @fifi, i wonder what you know about music if you think it was a mess. I think i would actually give a fuck if you were a professional opera singer but u probably aren’t so just shut up. This is fantastic, better than the pop crap that this generation listen to smh

    yes, this was great— as the person stated above, now if she could apply that same control and restraint in her pop/rnb voice she’d be all good!

    She did great, but she has a great regular singing voice too. It’s not her voice that’s the problem it’s her VOCALS that sometimes be off, but there are always great points of her vocals. Listening to her sing “Hurt”, “Feeling Good”, her national anthem this year. She really can do it when she wants too.

    Her voice wasn’t in its best condition. Even though she did better than I could ever do, it could’ve been better. But I hope this will somehow rub off on the mainstream industry. This shows a pretty woman, with an amazing voice. A beat or a lot of sexy dancers aren’t going to save you in opera. That’s what I like about it. It’s about the quality of the voice.
