First Look: Spice Girls Rehearse For The Closing Ceremonies Of The London 2012 Olympic Games


First it was a rumor … then there was evidence to support the rumor … now it’s fact — the Spice Girls WILL be performing during the Closing Ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Photos started to make their way to Twitter today that show the SpicesGinger, Sporty, Baby, Scary and Posh (Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Victoria Beckham respectively) — rehearsing for the their big reunion performance set to take place this Sunday night in London. Click below to see some of the photos and REJOICE! The Spice Girls are really together again!

Honestly, when I saw the first photo of the girls from behind I thought for sure it was a hoax photo … but the second photo of the Spices backstage, in between rehearsals made me a believer. As you can see, the ladies will perform atop bedazzled London taxi cabs — I love it! Here is a photo Tweeted by Mel B. herself:

    Look at Vicki B. ROCKING those leather pants and heels! She’s so damn fierce! Since I was too broke to go to their last tour, I’m sooo stoked to see them perform!!!

    Are the Spice Girls rehearsing to mime? Open mouth, close mouth. Gee, that’s so hard. I pity these poor women and the effort that will be required of them.

    With all of the AMAZING musicians to come out of the UK, they are having the freaking Spice Girls perform at the Olympics? They were popular for like 4 years, and didn’t have that many “hit” songs. I don’t fault people if they were fans, but come on, out of all of the people they could have chosen this is so silly.
