Spice Girls


The Olympics closing ceremony is going to be spicy. And girl-powered.

Get ready, world, because as E! News exclusively reported yesterday, the Spice Girls—Posh, Sporty, Baby, Scary and Ginger, as if we needed to remind you—were caught in rehearsal mode in London as they prepare to take the world's stage for Sunday night's British extravaganza.

Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell were spotted wearing all black and riding atop some lit-up black cabs. Just when we thought the opening ceremonies had tapped out on Britishness.

The girls were rehearsing an as-yet-unknown number (medley, anyone?) in East London's Ford Factory.

As it happens, the Beckhams have the fine distinction of bookending these games, as David Beckham memorably was responsible for chauffeuring the Olympic torch into the stadium (via speedboat, no less) during the opening ceremonies.

In addition to the Spice Girls, One Direction, The Who, George Michael, Muse, Russell Brand, Jessie J and Queen are expected to take part in the closing ceremony.
