For weeks, there has been speculation surrounding the British girl band the Spice Girls and whether or not they would perform during the closing ceremony of the Olympics. For years, the band has been involved in feuds with each other over different things.
The band that embraced “girl power” hit the scene in 1996, but two short years later, they were facing an imminent break-up as Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell left the band over what she cited as “differences.” Through the years, there have been instances of them trying to reunite, but often scheduling conflicts and their busy family lives (all five girls are now mama’s) made it difficult.
On Monday, a photograph was leaked of the girls practicing for the closing ceremony of the Olympics. However, were all five original members present? Amazingly yes! It looks as though Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), and even Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) will be performing at the closing ceremony.
This is great news for fans who grew up listening to the girls. They brought a message of female empowerment while maintaining a sultry look. It will be interesting to see if they stick to their outrageous outfits that made them icons, or if they will tone it down for the performance.
Are you excited to know that the Spice Girls will be performing at the closing ceremony for the Olympics? Who is your favorite Spice?
