It’s been more than four long years since the last time the world saw the Spice Girls perform at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, and the long-awaited reunion is finally in the works. The proposed show would take place in London’s Hyde Park in July 2017, nearly 21 years after the group released its first single, “Wanna Be.”
But the group may look a bit different this time around. Posh Spice and Sporty Spice, otherwise known as Victoria Beckham and Melanie Chisholm, respectively, have not signed on for the reunion. Chisholm has said that she has no interest in another reunion.
But fear not, Spice Girls fans: Kristen Bell and Ellen DeGeneres released an audition tape Tuesday on Ellen. DeGeneres called herself Basil Spice, and Bell: Fresh Garlic Spice. Bell showed off her dance moves as DeGeneres flaunted her extensive knowledge of spices.
The two also attempted to sing along with “Wanna Be” but could use a little work if they get the call and have to go onstage. The chorus wasn’t so bad, but the parts of the song where it’s hard to tell if the Spice Girls are actually saying words? Bell and DeGeneres weren’t even close.
