The Spice Girls (Women?) are back! But only for one night. The girl-powered pop group are expected to perform at the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Whether or not they will don their iconic platform shoes and "little Gucci dresses" is still unknown.
All five original members -- Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice) and Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) -- will join other pop stars such as George Michael, The Who, Take That and Jessie J, for the closing show on Aug. 12.
In June, the Spice Girls reunited for the first time since 2008 for the launch of their musical, "Viva Forever." They posed for pictures at the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel, which was famously the same setting for the group's debut music video "Wannabe." (If you didn't feel old enough already, "Wannabe" was released 16 years ago, and the Spice Girls split over a decade ago.)
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.
Want to know if your favorite pop act is reuniting in 2012? Check out the slideshow below.
S Club 7 -- a British pop group created by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller and consisting of members Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens -- rose to international fame in 2000, before splitting in 2003. In March 2012, it was announced that all original seven members would reunite for seven UK shows, with possibility of a two-album record deal.
Unlike almost all of the other 90s boy bands, the Backstreet Boys never really broke up -- although original member Kevin Richardson did quit in 2006. In 2011, the Backstreet Boys toured with New Kids on the Block, and BSB is planning to release a new album in 2012.
After reuniting in 2008, New Kids On The Block embarked on a highly successful reunion tour. Then in 2011, they joined The Backstreet Boys for the NKOTBSB tour and released a compilation album of the same name, featuring their hits "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" and "Hangin' Tough," and a new recording, "Don't Turn Out the Lights."
Take That formed in 1990 and after a few No. 1 UK singles, the British boy band split in 1996. However, the group reunited in 2005 and have been touring and releasing new music ever since. The band's next album is expected to hit shelves in late 2012, and Take That is also in talks to open the London 2012 Olympic Games.
After reuniting in 2007 for a Spice Girls reunion tour, the British girl power group may reunite again for Queen Elizabeth's upcoming Diamond Jubilee in June. Scary, Baby, Sporty, Ginger and Posh may also don their platform boots for the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer.
