Spice Girls to perform at Olympics closing ceremony


The inventors of Girl Power are due to perform together for the first time in four years at the London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony.

The nineties girl band are reportedly "95 percent" confirmed to reunite for the high profile concert.

Last month the five women, Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice) and Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), stood together for the first time in several years at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London (the 1996 setting for the "Wannabe" video) to promote the musical Viva Forever!

Since forming their band16 years ago the Spice Girls have gone on to forge separate successful careers. Beckham, who is rumoured to be the most reluctant bandmember to reform, has since become a fashion designer and lives in America.

At the closing ceremony they will sing two songs, believed to include "Wannabe".

Halliwell it is rumoured will wear the Union Jack dress she wore at the 1997 Brit Awards.
