Once popular music band “Spice Girls” may reunite to participate at the international song contest “Eurovision-2012″ in Baku. Western and Russian media reported that former member of the group Geri Halliwell put up a proposal to reunite the girls, and join the contest.
Halliwell thinks that the reunited “Spice Girls” will be able to do what “Blue” could not. Note that Blue brought the 11th place to the Great Britain at the previous contest.
Azerbaijani singers Eldar Gasymov and Nigar Jamal won the “Eurovision-2011″ contest, and thus the 2012 song contest will take place in Azerbaijani capital of Baku..
The singer – who famously quit the group in 1998 before they all got back together for a world tour in 2007 – thinks they should appear at the opening ceremony of the London 2012 summer games, as it will help put British music back on the map.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “The Spice Girls are part of me and always will be. If it happened and felt natural and right, then I’m always open to singing with the other girls.
“Singing at the Games is a great idea and would be an amazing opportunity – and it’s a sign the Brits are back. This is our time. Everything is circular and now there’s a British pop revival.
“It needs to put itself back on the map on a world stage. This is our opportunity to show that British music, which has led and dominated the world, should do, always.”
While the Spice Girls – also made up of Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton – are one of the acts in the frame to appear at the opening ceremony, indie band Coldplay are said to have been approached to perform an especially written anthem, ‘Welcome Song’.
Other singers considered to appear include Joss Stone, rockers Muse and Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn.
The former Spice Girl has a two-year-old daughter Scarlet with her property developer partner Thomas Starr and she insists having a child freed her always worrying about herself and her career. She said: ‘Being a mum has made me a better person. I’m really mellow, more confident and more unselfish. ‘Before Scarlet, especially working in such an appearance-conscious profession, everything was about me, me, me. It was all, ‘I’ve got to go to the gym, I’ve got to take care of myself and wear nice clothes.’
‘t’s a relief to have somebody else who becomes your priority. In a way it takes the pressure off you as an individual. It makes you so much happier and she’s made me feel more confident.’
Mel, 37, now can’t remember her life before Scarlet and is still staggered by how much happiness the little girl has brought to her and 43-year-old Thomas.
She added: ”m truly having a ball now this little person is in my life. She gives me so much joy but it has really surprised me how much having her has affected and changed me.’
Three of Mel’s former Spice Girls bandmates are currently pregnant. Mel B is having her third child; Victoria Beckham who is having her fourth child with husband David Beckham; and Emma Bunton, who is expecting her second child with her fiance Jade Jones.
