Yes! Without containing our excitement, what we want to say, what we really, really want to say is, the Spice Girls are back!
Twitter went absolutely mental yesterday upon their official announcement with “Spice Girls” and “Viva Forever” trending worldwide. It was almost like a riot. Although the last time anyone saw the British girl group phenomenon was four years ago for their reunion tour, the girls continue to stir enthusiasm in anyone that has ever heard of them.
Enter, the fangirl nostalgia.
We think, no, we know, that there can’t possibly be anyone who has never heard of them. Seriously. Geri Halliwell’s epic Union Jack dress? No?
Upon the announcement of their return, Victoria Beckham aka Posh Spice said, “We’re going to be introducing a whole new generation to Girl Power!”
“How?”, you ask?
At the media launch (incidentally held at St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel, were the girls filmed “Wannabe” in 1996, their first ever music video) Melanie Brown, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Melanie Chisholm (aka Scary Spice, Posh Spice, Baby Spice, Ginger Spice, Sporty Spice) said that they’re reuniting onstage for a musical based on their songs.
Aptly named, “Viva Forever”, the musical will focus on female empowerment and friendship tested by game. Aiming to tap the into the same female fan base as “Mamma Mia”, the stage show will feature hit songs made famous by the Spice Girls, who sold 75 million records around the world to date:

What can we say? The squeals and screams from fangirls worldwide is deafening!
“Viva Forever” will open in London in December 2012.
