After three decades since the Spice Girls formed, the iconic lineup is set to reunite for an undisclosed project, as revealed by founding member Mel B during her appearance on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna on January 9.

While the details of the project remain confidential, Mel B (Melanie Brown) assured fans that the Spice Girls are gearing up to share exciting news involving all five members in a few weeks. However, she acknowledged the challenges of coordinating a reunion, stating:

""There’s five of us, five separate diaries, we’re all parents.""

The classic Spice Girls lineup comprises Baby (Emma Bunton), Posh (Victoria Beckham), Ginger (Geri Halliwell-Horner), Sporty (Melanie Chisholm), and Scary Spice (Mel B). This group achieved chart-topping success on both sides of the Atlantic during the late 1990s.

Mel B expressed confidence that fans, known as Spicemaniacs, would be thoroughly satisfied with the forthcoming announcement, calling it "the gift that keeps on giving." She teased without giving away too much, playfully stating:

""I’m going to get myself into so much trouble.""

The Spice Girls, formed in 1994, catapulted to global fame with their debut single, "Wannabe," in 1996. The track spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and became one of the group’s nine U.K. No. 1 singles. Their debut album, "Spice," also achieved considerable success.

Reuniting the Spice Girls is a rare occurrence, with their last full performance together taking place at the London Olympics in 2012. In 2019, they embarked on a tour as a four-piece, excluding Victoria Beckham.

While the Spice Girls did come together in 2022 to celebrate Geri’s 50th birthday, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of their album "Spiceworld," details about the current reunion project remain shrouded in secrecy.

Beyond the potential reunion, Mel B discussed her return to the America’s Got Talent judging panel, her MBE, her upcoming wedding, and the Royal Mail’s issuance of special Spice Girls stamps, a significant honor usually reserved for the British monarchs.

The Spice Girls' impact is enduring, with "Wannabe" recently surpassing one billion streams on Spotify, attesting to the enduring popularity of the group's music. The anticipation surrounding the upcoming project has left fans eagerly awaiting more details about this iconic reunion.
