Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might be spicing up their wedding reception on May 19 with a performance by one of the most iconic girl groups in history.
While discussing the upcoming royal wedding with Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai on Tuesday’s edition of the UK’s “The Real”, Mel B let slip that not only will she be attending the ceremony but that all five members of the Spice Girls have been invited.
As her fellow co-hosts squealed in excitement, Mel B asked herself, “Why am I so honest?”
The “America’s Got Talent” judge did manage to bite her tongue when asked what the wedding invitations looked like, only saying it was a “proper” invite. “I’m not saying any more!” she shouted. “I’ve said enough!”
That didn’t stop her excitable co-presenters from pushing the issue, with Love asking the most important question on everyone’s minds, “Will the Spice Girls be performing at the reception?”
Mel B looked down at her cue cards and sighed. “This is just where I’m like…” she started, her hesitance seemingly enough to convince the panel and the live audience that the biggest-selling girl band of all-time will indeed be taking the stage at the royal reception.
The “Wannabe” singer threw her cards in the air in mock frustration. “I need to go,” she said. “I am going to be fired.”
Mel B recently got together with her former bandmates – Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Halliwell – at the request of former manager Simon Fuller, leading to speculation of a reunion tour. However, Beckham later squashed those rumours, saying that the meeting was about brainstorming potential business ideas, but not a reunion.
“The girls aren’t going on tour,” Beckham said. “It was so great to see the girls. We had such a fun lunch. It was really, really, really lovely. I still speak to them all individually, but for us all to get together was really lovely.”
Perhaps a one-off performance for a special occasion like a royal wedding is still a possibility?
Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran also shot down speculation that he would be singing at the royal reception, telling the BBC that he is in Dublin the night of the wedding and that he hadn’t been asked in the first place.
