Spice Girls to open London 2012 Olympic Games

The opening of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing was unarguably the greatest opening to any Olympic Games ever, and whoever follows the host city is sure to have an almost impossible task to equal it; unfortunately that city is London in 2012. It’s a great chance to showcase the best the host country has to offer to a worldwide audience of over 3 billion but who is Britain going to use to get the party started? That’s right, the Spice Girls.

The Sunday Mirror are reporting that Simon Fuller the *cough*genius*cough* behind the all girl group wants them them to open the games; "They stand for so much in British music history” said the media mogul with no hint of irony, “I can't think of a better time for them to get back together for another performance".

He went on to say; "They will not want to be performing hits like 'Wannabe' in their 40s, but it's amazing how often people talk about another reunion. And I think if they do it, it’s going to be in 2012,"

Jeez, why not go the whole hog and get Jedward to support them?
