“Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want. So tell me what you want, what you really, really want,” sang the Spice Girls from their 90′s hit “Wanna Be.” And I can tell you this…it appears the fab 5 are back together for an Olympic sized performance.
Rumors began swirling that the ladies would be performing at the Olympics when Sporty Spice, aka Mel C, said in an interview early this year that it’d be a shame if the Spice Girls weren’t somehow involved in the Olympics.
“I’d be really upset if the Spice Girls weren’t included in the Olympics, whether it be the opening or closing ceremonies or any other playlists, because I think we absolutely represented Britain in the 90s.”
Then, when Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) said in an interview she’d love to reunite with the girls and that she’s very proud to be English, she pretty much solidified the rumors. She continued by saying that she was very excited for the Olympics.
Not to mention, pictures have been taken of the group rehearsing on top of taxi cabs in what is sure to be an Olympic sized performance.
Let’s “Spice Up Your Life” with this throwback tune from 1997!
The Olympics wrap up this weekend with the closing ceremonies slated for Sunday evening.
