The Spice Girls are an English pop-girl group that originated in the '90s. With the rise of multiple pop-boy groups during this era, the need for the Spice Girls was practically essential.
Bob and Chris Hebert of Heart Management initiated a plan to form a girl group to compete with already popular boy-bands. In February 1994, they placed an advertisement in the magazine "The Stage" calling auditions for their new all-female pop band. The advertisement led to approximately 400 women auditioning. They were placed in groups of ten and were required to dance, sing, and showcase their talents. Conclusively, the judges found Melanie Chisholm, Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, and Emma Bunton.
Each member of the Spice Girls is nicknamed after a spice. Sporty Spice, Posh Spice, Ginger Spice, Scary Spice, and Baby Spice are their names. Each nickname isn't by chance and was given based on a reflection of their personality.
The Spice Girls popularized terms such as "girl power." During the '90s, "girl power" was a widely recognized cultural phenomenon that we won't soon forget. Some of their top songs were "Wannabe," "Say You'll Be There," "Spice Up Your Life," and "2 Become 1."
The Spice Girls remain friends today and performed at a reunion for the London 2012 Olympics. Hopefully we will see another reunion soon.
