The Spice Girls decide NOT to reunite for Brits night… hoo!

Posted by Dean Piper On February 13th, 2010

It’s my sad duty to report the Spice Girls are snubbing the Brit Awards ceremony on Tuesday.
The awesome fivesome have been on stand-by for the past couple of weeks following their nomination for Most Memorable BRITs Performance of 30 Years.
But organisers of the ceremony have somewhat cocked up – deciding to keep votes a secret and refusing to tell the girls whether or not they had a strong chance of winning. Therefore the logistical nightmare of getting all five girls into Earls Court for the show has been axed.
A source reveals: “All the girls were going to try and be there. Nowadays it’s a mare with them and trying to get them in the same place at the same time. But they were going to make it happen. The girls individual reps were put on standby.
Victoria Beckham would have flown in from New York Fashion Week and Melanie C was going to get the night off work at Blood Brothers on the West End. But they obviously were only willing to make it happen if all the trouble had been worth all the effort and they won. Emma Bunton’s not going to go either and will be at home watching it on telly. “Brits organisers refused to tell them either way so they decided they’d be represented by a couple of them in case but won’t make the big effort to get them all together. It’s a real blow to the show.”
On the night the only Spicies that will grace the ceremony will be Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown. I guess at least Geri will be there – after all it’s her iconic Union Jack dress that we all remember so vividly in the 1997 performance of Wannabe/Who Do You Think You Are (the performance that’s nominated).
This year’s Brits Awards seem to have had a tough old time persuading big acts to turn up. Coldplay, Dire Straits, Travis, Oasis, The Verve, Keane, Duffy, Sade and Dido have all failed to confirm as yet on whether they will attend. One of these acts will pick up the Best Album of 30 Years gong – but as things stand will record a video acceptance speech!
Fortunately the artists performing at the event will keep us all from remembering the past! Lady Gaga is bound to steal the show – with a performance dedicated to designer Alexander McQueen. And JLS, Dizzee Rascal, Kasabian and Robbie Williams will ensure it’s another award ceremony to remember.
I cannot wait to be there bringing you all the gossip as it happens on Tuesday evening!
