Might you be one of the brave souls who’d be game to audition for one of the Spice Girls spots vacated by Melanie “Sporty Spice” Chisholm and Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham? Think you have what it takes to share the reunion stage with the legends we call Geri “Ginger Spice” Horner, Emma “Baby Spice” Bunion, and Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown? Well, please be warned that the competition just got a heck of a lot steeper: Ellen DeGeneres and Kristen Bell made a Spice Girls audition tape. On Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the chat show host and The Good Place actress shared a clip in which they deliver arguably the zig-a-zig-ah-iest performances of their careers.
On the Sept. 8 episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden, Brown confirmed that a Spice Girls reunion show is reportedly slated to happen in 2017. Yes, 21 years after “Wannabe” first hit the radio airwaves, Brown, Horner, and Bunton will spice up fans’ lives once again. And though neither Chisholm nor Beckham are on board for this concert, Scary, Baby, and Ginger may not perform as a trio after all: As The Daily Mail reported earlier this month, the three remaining Spice Girls could use a BBC talent show to find someone to fill Sporty and Posh’s platform shoes (or should I say trainers and strappy stilettos?).
And maybe, just maybe, those substitute Spices will be Dory the regal blue tang and Princess Anna of Arendelle:
Go ahead and hand the slots over to DeGeneres’s wig and goggles already. Those two are the true breakout stars of the vid.
