But what do you think?

GOOD
13(33.3%)
BAD

It's nice to know other people have the same kind of conversations that we do. I do love Mel C. Ideally, the Spice Girls would consist of only Mel C and BunTon, although perhaps Geri might be allowed to carry their lipsticks for them. Mel C's costume during that song made her look like a glamrock Childcatcher, which I thought was a bold statement.

They are SO Mel C and her backing singers.

Totally. The performance was ho-hum, then Mel hopped up from her chaise longue and things became good.

Also, who are the losers who voted "BAD" on the Spice Girls in general question? I'll tell you who they are they are losers.

Individually, some of the Spice Girls have demonstrated that they have some talent. Admittedly, it's mainly Mel C, but she is in a musical genre that I don't care for at all.

Collectively, well let me just put it this way: they went downhill after Wannabe, but they fortunately couldn't fall much further.

Other than really wanting a 'meh' choice for Geri, that's not a grope. It's more of a 'and I'm moving my hand because I'm singing, whoops boob' moment.

Exactly!

Which is, you know, too bad.

Going by that YouTube link, I have to give Geri a "GOOD" vote for managing to keep the group on the fundraising message. 8 hours difference in LA, they were probably all riding a chemical peak to stay "sparkly."

get out more!
It's not a grope. I agree with redfiona that it is a 'whoops..boob' moment. I'm afraid if you thought it was a grope you need to get off the net and pay more attention to your partner!

Now if they got back together with Tony Blair and the rest of 'Cool Brittania' - that would be an interesting reunion!

Re: get out more!
Hmm, I love it when people who don't know me at all think they know what my views are and get it completely wrong!

I don't think it was a grope. Sadly. (Another fantasy cruelly dashed on the rocks!) Probably more just "I'm going to move my hand because it's maybe somewhere a bit risque and ... hmm, I don't remember Geri's being quite that large..."

Mel C absolutely rocks; a better voice than the other four put together, and looking even better now than she did back in the day. Mmm, Mel C...

I misread the title above the clip as "Spice Girls - Headless Children in Need Performance" - which was arresting, and somewhat undermined my interest in the non-grope...

Well, it would be hard to argue that Headless Children In Need wasn't a noble cause. Slightly futile, perhaps, but noble.

I started off hoping the Spice Girls themselves would be headless, but that hope was thwarted immediately... unless they were wearing prosthetic heads...

I tried to fit with the spirit of GOOD/BAD and was made of Fail.
