Can you believe it’s been 20 years since the Spice Girls released ‘Wannabe’?
It’s been nearly 20 years since the Spice Girls burst onto the pop music scene and changed the game forever with their debut single ‘Wannabe’. Now with their special anniversary approaching former band member and ‘America’s Got Talent Judge’ Mel B (aka Scary Spice) has been talking about the possibility of reunion to celebrate the group’s landmark anniversary.
Mel B has been speaking about a possible Spice Girls reunion.
"When you say it's our 20th anniversary, it makes you think oh gosh it really has been that long,” she said during an appearance on the 'Today Show', Thursday to promote her role as a a judge on America's Got Talent.
Victoria Beckham has discussed her relationship with the other members of The Spice Girls.
Victoria Beckham is still close to members of her former pop group, The Spice Girls. The 41-year-old pop star turned fashion designer discussed her friendship with her former group members during an interview at Manhattan's 92nd Street Y earlier this week.

It was Geri’s big day on Friday, but where were her former bandmates?
Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell finally said ‘I Do’ yesterday, in a lavish ceremony at the historic Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire. The pop star married Formula One team boss Christian Horner in front of a host of famous faces and at the recepition she even indulged in a solo rendition of Spice Girls hit ‘Wannabe’. But why was Emma Bunton the only ex-Spice Girl in attendance?

Sporty Spice Mel C failed to make Geri’s big day thanks to her job on the other side of the world. The singer was unable to make it back it back in time for the ceremony after appearing as a judge on 'Asia's Got Talent' which aired it’s finale espied on May 14th.
Would Eva Longoria make the perfect fifth Spice Girl?
The Spice Girls are back together! Ok, that was misleading. By “are” I mean “were” and by “together” I mean “in the same room, taking pictures for a couple of hours”. Also, there were only four of them. But other than that...
Posh, Sporty, Baby and Ginger reunited at David Beckham’s glamorous birthday party on Saturday, in Marrakech, Morocco. It was the presence of Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Emma Bunton that really spiced up the party, though.
Four songs recorded in 2000 emerged on SoundCloud on Wednesday, before being removed less than 24 hours later.
The internet briefly went into meltdown on Wednesday as four previously unreleased Spice Girls songs appeared online, only to be taken down early on Thursday morning.
The songs are believed to have been recorded at the same time as their third and final studio album Forever, which was released in 2000. Their titles are ‘A Day In Your Life’, ‘Pain Proof’, ‘If It’s Lovin’ Your On Mind’ and ‘Right Back At Ya’. The last of these is an alternative version of the one that actually appeared on Forever.

Everyone seems to know the score; They've seen it all before
As the England football team prepare for their biggest challenge yet, facing the world’s top teams in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup, some of the U.K’s biggest stars have seen football and music combine once more to cultivate the official World Cup song. It debuts on March 21st – Sport Relief night.

The Spice Girls reunited briefly in 2012, but Scary Spice Mel B is hoping to get the group back together for good. She knows at least one member is going to need some encouragement though.
Mel B is now a judge on 'America's Got Talent'
Melanie Brown spoke with The Daily Mail about her love for her four former bandmates, and how she hopes they will soon be together again.

Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear.
Oh, bless Geri Halliwell. The former Spice Girl was tasked with performing her new single Half of Me during an appearance on Australian sports programme The Footy Show this week, though things didn't really go to plan.
"How often to do we have an international superstar on the stage?" said one of the Footy Show's presenters before introducing Geri, "She's one of our favourite red-heads, and don't forget she's a member of the Australia's Got Talent show!"
The 41-year-old is releasing her new song down-under and, in fairness, agreed to sing a live rendition on the NRL show in front of an arena full of fans. Unfortunately for Halliwell, she regularly went out of tune and the dancing was frankly ridiculous.

The 39-yea-old pop star is expanding her horizons.
It’s the circle of life – while some girl groups are reuniting, others are calling it quits for good. Such is the fate of 90s wonder The Spice Girls, at least as far as Melanie Chisholm (Mel C) is concerned. The singer commented for The Sun that the group, comprising of herself, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell, Emma Burton and Victoria Beckham (nee Adams) wasn’t likely to head back in to the studio to record new music. However, she didn’t rule out further tours, so all is not lost for the five remaining Spice Girls fans out there.

In the meantime, Mel C is pursuing some creative endeavors of her own and targeting the talent show market this time. While it isn’t clear whether producers of BBC’s The Voice have actually contacted the performer, she does seem to have her sights set on a judging spot. It makes perfect sense, following the natural progression from pop star to fading/faded popstar to reality show judge.
Show suffers on the back of poor ticket sales and bad reviews
Viva not quite Forever for the Spice Girls musical as it’s been revealed that the West End production is to close in June. Devastating news for sure.
The news came on the back of poor reviews and a subsequent slump in ticket sales, despite the show initially boasting that it was taking bookings up until 2014 in the wake of December’s high profile launch. Sadly producer Judie Craymer confirmed “We just can't make it work," who was hoping to follow up the success of Abba musical Mamma Mia!
In a statement, the Spice Girls said they were "thrilled that the thousands of people who came to the show had as much fun as we did,” but on a personal level it’s clear there were a couple of disappointed members. Emma Bunton took to her twitter to say that she was “gutted” about the news, while Melanie Chisholm also confessed herself “devastated” – an emotion shared by the many who actually went to watch the musical, we feel, though not perhaps for the same reasons.
