In the name of girl power, the Spice Girls will be performing at the closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic Games tomorrow!
While there hasn’t been any confirmation on what songs the ladies will be performing, pictures of the girls rehearsing were posted on Twitter as they practiced their choreography on top of black cars.
Posh Spice aka Victoria Beckham was the first to confirm that the group would be performing at the Olympics about three weeks ago.
“We are so proud to be English and we are very excited about the Olympics,” she said.
But don’t count on another reunion for the girls just yet. “I don’t know about a comeback tour, but I loved being back with the girls. There was a lot of fun, we did so much together and we’ll see. If they’re up for something then I certainly am.”
Oh, for the sake of my childhood…please go on ANOTHER reunion tour! While I’ll get to see you perform tomorrow, I guess I’ll have to settle for Viva Forever!, the West End Musical based on the Spice Girls’ hits.
That being said, what songs do you want to hear when they perform tomorrow?
Hopefully, they’ll perform this song.
The recent British invasion of musicians has come with The Wanted, Cher Lloyd, One Direction, Conor Maynard — the list goes on. One female 90s group in particular that made all the girls feel like they had ‘GIRL POWER’ is the Spice Girls and they’re reuniting, but probably only for one night.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Spice Girls are expected to re-unite to perform at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony. During a radio interview earlier this week, Posh Spice aka Victoria Beckham said, “I don’t know about a comeback tour, but I loved being back with the girls. We are very excited about the Olympics.” If the reports are true (we are totz crossing our fingers about this) the gals will join George Michael, Jessie J, Take That and The Who.
The group recently reunited in London to launch Viva Forever! a new musical based on their hit songs that is set to be out at the end of the year. Hopefully it goes worldwide because there is no way I am missing this!
In a recent interview with Hello! magazine, Emma Bunton revealed that she and fellow ex-Spice Girl Victoria Beckham swap baby advice on a regular basis following the births of Bunton’s son, Tate Lee Jones, in May, and the birth of Beckham’s daughter, Harper Seven, a few weeks back.
“As soon as we can possibly meet up, we will. But for the moment we’re making do with emails,” Bunton told Hello! magazine. “We’ve been swapping bits of advice and photos and sharing our excitement.”
It’s so nice to see the Spice Girls are still close with each other! It definitely fills the void that has grown in every Spice Girl fan over the years since their break. In fact, Bunton’s fellow former Spice Girl members were the first to send flowers after she gave birth to Tate, with little notes and all. “That is always special to me, to get those from the girls,” Bunton said.
“The relationship we girls have will always be special. Now our kids are friends too and as they grow, it will be wonderful to watch them all and the different stages in their lives,” continued Bunton. Who knows, maybe their kids will form a group of their own one day! Can you say Spice Girl Juniors, anyone?
The Spice Girls are reuniting for a full-scale comeback, reports Perez Hilton, but Victoria Beckham, known to fans as Posh Spice, will not be joining her former bandmates in their efforts, saying she doesn’t have the “time or desire” to resurrect the pop group.
Sources say Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel C. plan to be on the road in a year’s time.
Bunton is reportedly still not sold on rejoining the group, either. “Emma is being cautious, but the minute she’s with the girls, they’ll talk her ’round,” said a source close to the band.
Planning to buy the Spice Girls’ upcoming greatest hits album? You might want to pick up a new bra while you’re at it.
Victoria’s Secret will be selling the album exclusively when it comes out November 13.
The CD will also be available online at various sites, including the Victoria’s Secret web site and iTunes. Of the 15 tracks, 13 are old favourites and two are new songs, “Voodoo” and “Headlines (Friendship Never Ends).”
The fab five will also join the Victoria’s Secret Angels with a performance at the VS fashion show, airing December 4.
The Spice Girls reunion tour kicks off December 2 in Vancouver.
