The Spice Girls Bring Girl Power to the Olympic Closing Ceremony
The Spice Girls were back together at this evening's Closing Ceremony in London! The five girls — Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Halliwell, and Emma Bunton — reunited to sing the hit that made them famous, "Wannabe," as well as "Spice Up Your Life." We caught a glimpse of the Spice Girls rehearsing earlier this week, and they even polished off their moves with one last run-through this morning. For the big show, Victoria wore a dress from British designer Giles Deacon, and Geri even had a bit of Union Jack on her red mini.
It seems Victoria was excited to be back with her old bandmates, as she tweeted a couple picture of their preparations this afternoon. She also shared the quote, "Behind every success is effort, behind every effort is passion, behind every passion is someone with the courage to try." Mel B was also feeling the magnitude of the occasion. She tweeted, "What an amazing day today!" Emma, meanwhile, was in a girl power state of mind. She wrote, "It's all pink tonight, baby!"
