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 Spices — Ginger, 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:
