Although Mel C., aka Sporty Spice, put the track pants and sports bras on the shelf some time ago, she proved she still had her singing chops when she stopped by BBC Radio's Chris Evans Breakfast Show to deliver an acoustic rendition of the Spice Girls hit, "Too Much."
Tackling all vocals by herself, Melanie Chisholm took fans back to the very opening of the Spice Girls' 1997 hit movie, Spice World, which saw the silhouettes of Chisholm, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Victoria Beckham dancing alongside color-coded back drops. It may be 18 years since the release of "Too Much," but Chisholm's vocals have fans questioning if she's even aged a day.
The 41-year-old singer has been producing her own music since the Spice Girls called it quits in 2000, People notes. Sporty, Scary, Baby, Ginger and Posh did, however, reunite to perform a medley of their girl-power hits at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012.
Talks of a Spice Girls reunion have circulated lately, with Melanie Brown carrying most of the will to reconvene. Back in September, Scary Spice told Meredith Vieira: "There's nothing to really spill because nothing has been announced, nothing's official. I mean, yes, we are in talks because it's our 20th anniversary. And I want something to happen. I'm forcing them a little bit, but yeah. I've been saying it for five years, 'We are reuniting. We are, aren't we?'" US Weekly reports.
Although Baby Spice quickly refuted the comments on her own Heart FM breakfast radio show, it didn't stop Brown from talking to Jimmy Fallon about it on The Tonight Show. "When you say it's our 20th anniversary coming up, it does make you think, 'Oh, my gosh, it really has been that long.' Hopefully, we'll gather the troops around, and we'll get to do something to celebrate it next year. It's in my plan, I don't know about anybody else's," she said.
