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.
