James Corden and Adele’s performance of the Spice Girls’ song “Wannabe” got Posh Spice’s approval!
“HUGE Adele fan!! This is GENIUS!!!” Victoria wrote. “Thank u @adele and @jkcorden #ilovemyspicegirls X posh ”
Adele really fangirled over the Spice Girls during Carpool Karaoke, and even admitted that her first “real heartbreak” was when Geri (Halliwell) Horner, a.k.a. Ginger Spice, left the group in 1998. “Is that who ‘Someone Like You’ is about?” Corden joked.
Geri responded to her famous fan, tweeting: “Ahh @Adele we love you.”
Emma Bunton, a.k.a. Baby Spice, also loved Adele’s “Wannabe” rendition, tweeting: “[heart] this!”
“It was a huge moment in my life when they came out,” Adele told Corden. “It was girl power, and it was these five ordinary girls who did so well and got out. It was a really important period of my life.”
Adele’s Carpool Karaoke has already garnered well over nine million views, and if her cover of Spice Girls doesn’t impress you, her rapping to Nicki Minaj’s “Monster” most certainly will. Check it out:
