While everyone else seemed to be glued to the trainwreck that was Mariah Carey’s NYE performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve (including, apparently, Jennifer Lopez, who may have thrown some shade her way), a Spice Girls mini-reunion of epic proportions was happening right under our noses.
Rather than the one that was teased to us for the whole of 2016, however (including one Miss Geri Halliwell-Hornerl, Mel B. and Emma Bunton), this one consisted of the very two members of the group that had declined to join — Mel C., who says she was bullied by the group back in the day, and Victoria Beckham.
Both ladies were on hand in the Maldives, and Victoria showed up to her former bandmate’s gig, dancing along to Mel’s cover of Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” with her family.
She wasn’t an audience member for long, however, as Mel called her onstage to sing one of their biggest former hits, “2 Become 1.” Lucky for us, the moment was captured by fans, as can be seen below.
Oh. Em. GEE! That is everything we could’ve asked for and more. Mel seems to concur, posting this shot of her and Victoria to her page and writing, “Candle light and soul forever. A wonderful start to 2017. XXX.”
Look at how cute they are together!
We hope our 2017 is filled with more of where this came from, ladies — you just made our year!
Are you super stoked to see these two on stage together? Tell us over @BritandCo.
