The Spice Girls were one of the most successful girl bands in the '90s and they have Annie Lennox to thank for that!

Simon Fuller, the former manger of the British pop group, revealed in a documentary who was the key player in the Spice Girls' success!

According to Simon, there were a few bumps in the beginning of the road for the girl band and he credits his dear friend for helping each member focus on their persona.

Victoria Beckham with her Posh personality, Emma Bunton with her adorable Baby Spice persona, Mel B as Scary Spice, Mel C as Sporty Spice, and last but not least, Geri Halliwell with her Ginger self. LOLz!

The former manager explained:

'Each of the girls knew who they were and in their own way tried to represent it but it wasn't strong enough. and probably the most significant thing that happened was when they met Annie Lennox.

I'm not sure this story has ever been told and Annie might not thank me for telling it. But I think we were flying to New York and I sort of brought up midway in the flight and said I've just signed this girl group. And Annie was very interested.

She said "I want to meet them." Almost directly she was the one who who got them to be louder and more brash and more specific, So Emma who was the sweet cute blonde girl became Baby Spice.

She just played it and hammed it up - none of these names actually existed, but Annie gave them focus.'

We're so glad Annie was around then!

Who knows if these girls would have become the superstars they are today!

It's such a shame Posh said she'll never ever take part in another Spice Girls reunion ever again.

We can't keep playing the reunion performance at the 2012 London Olympics over and over again!

Sometimes you just need something new to spice up your life!

    They were all prettier than the average woman. Wow! What a discovery of genious… No, but.. Shut your mouth!
    After that, a few small singing lessons to perfect a semblance of professionalism and start the auto-tune! The art of taking people for idiots.

    And no, I knew that Auto has not used from the beginning of the Spice Girls and that it has been used by Cher in 98, but it does not change the fact if the Spice Girls had access to this technology, I doubt they would have refused to use it by simple moral principle.

    Annie goes right to the heart of 'entertain.'
