The Spice Girls have been at the center of a lot of rumors lately. In the past few months, we’ve heard word that the Girls will reunite for their musical memoir Viva Forever, if not also for some Olympic fun. Any Spice Girls news is good news, but we’ve been waiting on confirmation to pull out our platforms. Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham addressed some of these rumors yesterday on British radio, where she batted back hopes of a comeback tour before letting slip that the girls are “very excited about the Olympics.” And so are we, especially so knowing that we’ll finally get that Spice Girls reunion we have so long been waiting (and planning our outfits) for!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the good word on the streets this morning is that all five of the original Spice Girls are “expected to” preform together at the London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony on August 12th. Dusted-off and decked in the Union Jack like Jerri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell always was wont to be, they’ll join the Kingdoms’s finest — Queen, The Who, George Michael, Tinie Tempah, Jessie J and several sheep dogs, to name just a few — for two songs, one of which is likely be “Wannabe,” aka, what we want, what we really, really want! How zig-a-zig-ah would that be?
