Melanie C Shares Her Favorite Spice Girls Memory

As one-fifth of one of the biggest girl bands of all time, Melanie C presumably has a long list of standout moments from her Spice Girls heyday. However, while reflecting on her many years in the iconic British pop group, the singer revealed to Entertainment Tonight that one of her favorite Spice Girls memories was at the London Olympics closing ceremony back in 2012. 

"When we [performed at] the Olympics in London in 2012, we did 'Spice Up Your Life' and 'Wannabe,' and we were on top of these taxicabs and going around the stadium, singing 'Spice Up Your Life,'" she recalled. "I have these wonderful, like, visual images of the whole stadium and the lights and everything flashing, and it just being so exciting. From that moment ... that became my favorite song."

In contrast to her Spice Girls highlights, Mel C has also previously opened up about some of her lower moments in the legendary girl band, revealing that things weren't always so rosy. 

Melanie C also opened up about one of her least favorite memories

During an interview with The Guardian in 2019, Mel C, otherwise known as Sporty Spice, shared details of a not-so-fond memory of her early years in the band. Speaking to the publication, Mel C revealed that in February 1996, five months before their debut single had officially dropped, she was almost kicked out of the group following an argument with her fellow bandmate, Posh Spice, aka Victoria Beckham. "I got a bit lairy and I told Victoria to f*** off," she remembered. 

Thankfully, the pair quickly got over their brief rift, and discussing the possibility of future Spice Girls tours with Entertainment Tonight in 2021, Mel C admitted that she hopes Beckham will one day rejoin the band onstage after being very reluctant to do so in recent years.

"We were kind of hoping she'd end up coming on the last one. Of course, we respect Victoria's decision, and her feeling towards it," she said. "Although she wasn't with us on the stage, she was very much involved in the show. We wanted her to be happy and comfortable with all of the direction, with the creative and everything, because it's her baby as much as the rest."
