What could possibly be better than a royal wedding?
Okay, the list of answers to that question is actually incredibly long and includes everything from Flamin’ Hot Cheetos to reruns of Roseanne.
But we’re here to talk about one very specific thing that’s better than a royal wedding – and that’s a royal wedding that features a performance from the Spice Girls.
Yes, according to none other than Mel B, after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exchange vows in May, they’ll be serenaded by Britain’s favorite pop group behind those shaggy-headed dudes who sang that song about the Walrus.
Mel reluctantly made the announcement while appearing on daytime talk show The Real this morning.
Hosts Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai questioned Mel on whether or not she’s been invited to the wedding, and she eventually broke down and silently mouthed the word “going.”
The crowd lost its mind, and Mel admitted that she may have been a bit too forthcoming.
“I don’t know if I should have said that live on camera, but…” she joked.
When the trio of hosts pressed Mel for further information about the event, she confessed that her former bandmates would also be in attendance.
Asked if she received a formal invitation, Mel clarified:
“Well, it was the five Spice Girls. Why am I so honest?”
Mel drew the line, however, at providing a physical description of the royal invite.
“See, now that’s getting too personal if I actually describe it.” Mel B said, adding it was a “proper” invite. “I’m not saying any more!”
Then came the biggest revelation of all:
Asked if she performing at the ceremony, Mel simply shook her head, laughed, and threw her notecards in the air.
That’s British for “yes, but if I say it out loud, the Queen might have me beheaded.”
For the time being Mel’s not saying anything more, and in general details about Harry and Meghan’s wedding have been scarce, so we have no choice but to make wild guesses regarding the setlist.
To come right out of the gate with “Wannabe” or “Spice Up Your Life” would be to risk stealing the spotlight from the bride and groom (another beheadable offense).
We’re betting on something more lyrically appropriate – “When 2 Become 1” followed by a rousing rendition of “Say You’ll Be There” in order to … spice things up.
Whatever the case, it’s sure to be a memorable performance … that will never be seen by lowly peasants like us. Zigazig ah!
