Spice Girls Reunite (well kind of). The girl group took to YouTube to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1996 hit “Wannabe,” minus Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham and Melanie “Sporty Spice” Chisholm.

Three of the five Spice Girls -- Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell, Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton and Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown – now known as GEM (which stands for the first letter in each of their names) released a 40-second video to thank their loyal fans for the success of their first hit, which is still the highest-selling debut single by a female group in the pop music history.
"We've been thinking, we have the best fans in the whole entire world," Scary Spice exclaimed to start off the video clip. "You've stood by us for 20 years, and we want to say a big thank you,” added Ginger Spice. "We've had our ups and downs, but you've always been there,” Baby Spice confessed.
Brown rounded out the clip teasing a possible reunion tour. "And we want to celebrate and have a party! And when we do, you're all invited!"
The clip then cuts to a message written to the girl group’s fans. “Happy 20th birthday to all our fans," the message read. "This is a celebration for you! We hope to tell you soon, what you want, what you really really want. #WANNABE.”
The reunion tour would be the first time the girl group reunited, since their performance during the opening ceremony at the 2012 London Olympics.
And when it comes to Posh and Sporty Spice joining in on the possible tour Beckham has remained tight-lipped about her future involvement in the group, while Chisholm confessed to The Sun that she is focusing on her own album, but there are “lots of discussions going on right now” and she’s “taking it slowly.” What do you think of the new group GEM?
