The Spice Girls: They came (to the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony), they saw (their reunion become one of the most anticipated and talked-about moments of the night), they conquered (the post-ceremony party scene).
Hey, girl power can be harnessed, but it certainly can't be given a curfew, as evidenced by some of the all-night tweeting and party play-by-play coming courtesy of Posh Spice Victoria Beckham, Sporty Spice Melanie Chisholm, Scary Spice Melanie Brown, Baby Spice Emma Bunton and Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell!
"We did it!! I love u girls so much!!!!! xxxvb," Victoria tweeted alongside a picture of the girls backstage immediately following their two-song performance, adding moments later, "I was a pop star for the night!! I love u @MelanieCmusic, @OfficialMelB, @GeriHalliwell, @EmmaBunton!! we did it!! X vb."
However, if the steady stream of tweets and twitpics that followed were any indication, Posh seems to have tapped out there for the night, leaving the more party-hardy ways to her sister bandmates.
"Party till the break of dawn, and Mel is still in her outfit #spicegirlsolympics," Bunton tweeted (early) Monday morning, along with a photo of the Spices (sans Victoria) partying with the unlikely likes of fellow closing-ceremony performer Liam Gallagher.
Gallagher was apparently the unofficial Spice Boy for the evening, as Mel B posted a photo of the four girls along with the Beady Eye frontman.
"Love @liamgallagher 'come and 'ave a go!'" Mel C chimed in. Though hanging with Liam wasn't the biggest topic of conversation among the girls.

That honor goes to Scary's wardrobe choices. Or rather, her choice not to change out of her leopard-jumpsuit performance outfit as the night (and morning) wore on.
"Oh what a night!" Geri tweeted. "What a party! is melb still in her performance outfit? #spiceolympics."
Of course, it wasn't all good-natured ribbing of their bandmate.
"What an honour to represent our country and perform for all of the incredible Olympians," Mel C wrote. "We salute you one and all #coloursoftheworld x x."
