Children of the '90s, brace yourselves. What you're about to see will make you extremely nostalgic for platform shoes and pigtails. All five member of the Spice Girls reunited in London on Tuesday for the launch of their musical, "Viva Forever."

Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice) and Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) -- sans her "little Gucci dress" -- arrived at the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel to officially unveil the new stage show based around their music.

This is the first public appearance of all five members of the girl power pop group since 2008, when the Spice Girls embarked on a reunion tour. If that scene behind the girls looks familiar, it's because the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel was famously used for the group's debut music video "Wannabe." And if you didn't feel nostalgic enough already, the iconic track was released exactly 16 years ago today. The Spice Girls split over a decade ago (and we're still bummed about it).

At the helm of "Viva Forever" is the ab fab Jennifer Saunders, who created and starred in the popular British comedy series, "Absolutely Fabulous," and producer Judy Craymer, who also produced the ABBA musical "Mamma Mia!"

"Viva Forever" will follow a talent competition and how a "Wannabe" star named Viva and her family are affected by the process. Viva originally applies for the talent contest with a group, but is faced with a decision whether to go through to the next round solo or not at all. Remember Viva, "friendship never ends."

All five Spice Girls have been involved in creating the new musical, which will open at the Piccadilly Theatre in London on Nov. 27.
