Spice Girls set to finally reunite with Victoria Beckham for Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
The iconic girl group have reportedly been asked to reunite for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. If all members of the chart-topping 1990s girl band agree, it will be the first time the five have performed together since 2012.
Back then, they sang a medley of their hits at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics. They reunited to perform a medley of “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life”.
The performance became the most tweeted moment of the Olympics with over 116,000 tweets per minute on Twitter. Seven years later, four of the iconic girl group began a Spice World 2019 tour of the UK.
Speaking to The Sun, Mel C said: “We would love to have her back on stage. In all honesty, I think it’s gonna happen. At some point, I think Posh Spice will be back on stage.” “The success of the shows in 2019 and just how much we loved it,” she said.
This Star Inspired Victoria Beckham to Leave the Spice Girls
Plenty of people end up in jobs they’re not passionate about before finding a career that’s a better fit. But for Victoria Beckham, that early job was being a founding member of one of the biggest girl groups in music history. When it comes to her time in the Spice Girls, Beckham has been open about the fact that singing isn’t her true talent—and she thanks one extremely famous person for inspiring her to stick to her guns.
In a letter to her future self for British Vogue, Beckham wrote about her decision to leave the Spice Girls and how seeing a certain artist inspired her to make that call. Read on to see who inspired the former Posh Spice to leave the group, and to see what else she had to say about her career change.

An Elton John performance shifted Beckham’s career path
While Beckham was watching one of Elton John’s performances in 2008, she realized that the passion he has for music is not something she shares. In the letter to her future self, which British Vogue published on Jan. 11, Beckham wrote: “Remember years ago, watching your dear friend Elton John on stage in Las Vegas. He performed ‘Tiny Dancer’, as if it were the first time, and you realized this was like oxygen for him.”
She continued, “It was a life-changing moment—while singing and dancing was fun for you, it wasn’t your passion. That day, you started your quest to uncover your own dreams. It was time to step away from being a Spice Girl. For the first time, you were venturing out on your own, and it was terrifying. It was scary to close a chapter that defined you.”
Beckham gave John credit in the past, too
In a 2018 interview with Vogue Australia, Beckham also explained that seeing John perform pushed her to put down her microphone. She said she told him of the effect he had on her life, too. “I was with Elton John this weekend and I told him: ‘You’re the reason why I stopped the Spice Girls,'” she told the magazine.
She referenced the same Las Vegas show as in her British Vogue letter. “I remember sitting there very near to the front and looking at him singing those songs he’d sung time after time, year after year, and his passion and his enjoyment was incredible, even after all that time,” she said.
“A few nights later, I was on stage at Madison Square Garden with the Spice Girls and I thought: ‘It’s almost like a waste that I’m given this opportunity. I appreciate the time I’ve had with the girls, but I don’t have what Elton can have after all these years.’ There was nothing there, other than that my kids were in the audience and I wanted them to see Mummy doing the Spice Girls.”
At the time, Beckham was taking part in the The Return of the Spice Girls Tour, which ended early “due to family and personal commitments.” The band had previously gone on an indefinite hiatus starting in 2001.
Beckham and John have been close for years
Beckham, her husband David Beckham, and John have been friends for a long time. In Aug. 2018, when the Beckhams were hanging out on John’s yacht in the South of France, David posted a photo of himself and John on Instagram and wrote, “Uncle Elton…. We have known each other now for 25 years .. Fun times with each other.” John is the godfather of the Beckhams’ two oldest sons, Brooklyn and Romeo.
Beckham is now focused on her fashion and beauty brands
Beckham last toured with the Spice Girls in 2008 as part of the Return of the Spice Girls Tour and last performed with them at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, even though her four bandmates have gone on to tour together since. The year she left the group, Beckham started her eponymous fashion line, which has become hugely successful.
More recently, in 2019, she started Victoria Beckham Beauty. In the letter to her future self, Beckham looks back—and forward—on her career. “I know you are still reinventing yourself, taking on new challenges, and ignoring the naysayers,” she wrote. “You always look beyond the conventional wisdom to pave your own path.” No matter what Beckham does next, she told herself to never forget her manta: “Work hard and be kind.”
Victoria Beckham, in full Victoria Caroline Adams Beckham, byname Posh Spice, (born April 17, 1974, Goff’s Oak, Hertfordshire, England), English singer and designer who gained stardom in the mid-1990s as a member of the pop band Spice Girls and later launched a successful line of clothing and accessories.
The two first crossed paths in the Manchester United players’ lounge in early 1997. At the time, Victoria was better known as Posh Spice of the Spice Girls and David was on the brink of global stardom for his impressive European soccer career.
Why did the Spice Girls break up? The 2 Become 1 singers became five to focus on their solo careers. In December 2000, they announced they were taking an indefinite hiatus – but insisted they hadn’t broken up for good. … By 2007, the Spice Girls were ready to try a comeback.
Victoria, 44, is the richest of the Spice Girls – and has more money than the other four combined. While Victoria is a valuable commodity jointly with husband David, she is an astute businesswoman – and her net worth in her own right has soared to an estimated £240million.
