As promised, the Spice Girls performed last night at the London Olympics Closing Ceremony. And it didn’t matter that they haven’t performed together since 2008, or that “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life” are both older than most members of the gold medal winning U.S. women’s gymnastics team — aka, the other Fab Five — because this was like a two-and-a-half twists to a blind landing Amanar and they totally stuck the landing. Posh, Scary, Sporty, Ginger and Baby looked and sounded great from the moment they arrived on stage each in their own jazzed-up black cab until the moment they disappeared. There was a little bit of dancing, lots of sparkle and platformed shoes, of course. Even Posh seemed to have fun (though she looked a little nervous atop her taxicab). The whole thing was everything we wanted, really really wanted, zig-a-zig-ah!
Posh mostly had fun.
