We have some epic news, and I think you all will agree with me when I tell you why. Did you know that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married? You did? Great. Well, did you know that the Spice Girls might be performing at their wedding?
On Feb. 27, Mel B — aka “Scary Spice” — appeared on the talk show “The Real,” and she spilled some beans involving the royal wedding on May 19, 2018. The singer appeared to hint that not only is she attending the nuptials, but that the Spice Girls themselves may be performing.
The hoopla started when host Loni Love asked Mel B if she knew anyone going to the wedding, to which Scary Spice nodded. Pandemonium then broke loose as all the hosts excitedly began to shout, “Are you going?” Co-host Jeannie Mai asked “Did you get an invitation?” And Mel B responded, “I’ve got a Spice Girls invitation.”
Excitedly, Love followed up by asking if the 1990s girl group would be performing, because what else, really, does “a Spice Girls invitation” mean?
Mel looked down and said nothing as the rest of the hosts started shrieking and clamoring to be a plus-one.
“I’m going to be fired,” Mel eventually joked. You can watch the clip here:

Ultimately, Mel B never confirmed or denied the possibility of a performance. But that didn’t stop the audience and hosts from going bananas, because we all want to imagine Prince William showing off his dance moves to “Wannabe” on the dance floor, don’t we?
So far, there is no official word from Buckingham Palace if the Spice Girls are to become a one-time wedding band. In January, fellow Brit Elton John confessed that he had not received his invitation yet, and naturally similar rumors are circulating that he’ll perform for the couple. (For what it’s worth, pop star Ellie Goulding performed for the first dance at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s reception!)
The royal wedding aside, the Spice Girls have some exciting plans ahead. The fab five are supposedly in talks for a reunion tour, and the ever-popular girl group sparked rumors when they were photographed together recently.
So will they or won’t they? Stay tuned!
