Reunited Spice Girls Perform During 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony
The Spice Girls are baaaaaack!
Last night during the closing ceremony at the 2012 London Olympics, they performed a medley of hits including "Wannabe" and "Spice Up Your Life" and arrived on the stage in grand fashion: In five separate multi-colored taxis!
Their performance made a huge splash which, according to The Huffington Post, had apparently 300 million viewers worldwide and 80,000 fans in attendance at Olympic Stadium!
Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, Victoria Beckham, and Geri Halliwell channeled Sporty, Baby, Scary, Posh, and Ginger Spice respectively stood on top of their taxis as they circled the stadium. They weren't the only headliners of the event.
Russell Brand, Fatbloy Slim, Liam Gallagher, and One Direction were also there and The Who closed it out. As for the tail end of the ceremony, Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, passed the Olympic flag to the mayor of Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian city is set to host the summer games in 2016!
