Victoria Beckham Reminisces About Spice Girls' Olympics Performance As Tokyo 2020 Gets Underway

Posh is feeling nostalgic for her last performance as a Spice Girl in the lead-up to Tokyo 2020.

As the Tokyo Olympics get underway, many of us are getting nostalgic for 2012, when the UK played home to the tournament.

That includes Victoria Beckham, who famously helped close the event with an incredible Spice Girls medley.

On Friday morning, Posh posted a throwback photo of herself during the chart-topping group’s Closing Ceremony routine, remembering it as “one of the proudest Spice Girls moments”.

Sharing the love with her bandmates Mel B, Geri Horner, Melanie C and Emma Bunton, she added: “Sharing these moments in honour of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics starting today.. sending so much luck to Team GB.”

She later included a nod to her husband David’s prior appearance at the Opening Ceremony, joking: “I wasn’t the only Beckham at the Olympics!”

 

The 2012 closing ceremony marked the last time that Victoria performed with the Spice Girls, who reunited in 2019 for a stadium tour as a four-piece.

However, earlier this week, Melanie C let slip that she knows what it would take to get VB back with the band that helped launch her as an international star.

Asked about the potential for the Spice Girls to perform in Glastonbury’s iconic Legends slot during an interview on Lorraine, Mel commented: “Oh my gosh, that’s the dream! We would absolutely love to do it. 

“Well, not to speak out of turn, but between you and I, I know that Mrs Beckham would love to do Glastonbury.”

Earlier this month marked 25 years since the Spice Girls first burst onto the scene with their chart-topping debut single Wannabe.

The group marked the anniversary with the release of a never-before-heard demo that was recorded for their debut album.
