So, The Spice Girls Are Back. Perez Reviews Their "Comeback" Performance!

spiiiiceee__opt1.jpg

The Spice Girls performed "live" for the first time in nearly ten years on Thursday.

The ladies were part of the Victoria's Secret fashion show at the Kodak Theater, which unfortunately, won't air on TV for about two weeks.

It was great to see Emma, Geri, Mel B., Victoria and Melanie C. together on stage again.

Overall, their two-song performance was good fun. We were, however, disappointed that they were totally lipsynching. Both songs.

The girls' first song was the best of their set. They did a spirited, lipsynched rendition of their classic Stop, dressed in a military theme and with some great male dancers.

After the ladies finished their first song they gave each other a big hug and breathed a sigh of relief.

Not too shabby - despite the lipsynching - for their first time out in years.

Their second song, current single Headlines, didn't fare as well. Though it was a ballad and required no dancing, they lipsynched this one as well. Unfortunately, they didn't have the boys or choreography to make this song as compelling.

They kinda just stood their in their gowns just pouting throughout the entire performance of Headlines - like mannequins.

Having said that, they did look AMAZING, although we don't think any of their outfits were made by Victoria's Secret.

If you are planning to go see the Spice Girls in concert, just go in expecting them to lipsynch. If they do, then you won't be disappointed. And if they actually sing live, then it will be a special treat!

Speaking of singing live, Seal sang live. He performed a couple of songs, one of which featured his wife and Victoria's Secret model Heidi Klum on vocals.  And Heidi sang live too!

Heidi Freaking Klum can sing live and the Spice Girls can't?????  WTF???

And Heidi sounded good!

Will.I.Am opened the show, singing/rapping live. He did two songs, including the booty-shaking Got It From Your Momma.

Will replaced Kanye, who pulled out of his performance after the passing of his mom.

The Brazilians dominated the runway once the lingerie show got under way. And, it was a very fun experience.

We're still excited about the Spice Girls tour, even if they lipsynch the entire show!

  12. MATT , BITCH says – reply to this

    it's very common in the UK for acts to lipsync on tv shows.
    plus they are in the middle of rehearsals. they dont need to strain their voices.

  13. Shireen says – reply to this


    13

    that's really disappointing about the spice girls. not that I was expecting much, but I was appreciating them being back together.. hearing they lip synched kinda kills that appreciation.

    good for heidi and seal.. though I wouldn't expect anything less from them. heidi can do no wrong, as far as I am concerned. love her.

    that really sucks that they lip-synched their way through the performance. i dont think its worth going to their concert if they're going to do that. id rather sit at home drinking listening to a CD…its the same shit.

  20. Val says – reply to this

    Victoria is so talentless and ugly, God thanks she married a right guy to support her in her plastic and shopping endevours!

    22

    THEY SUCKED WAY BACK WHEN AND THEY SUCK NOW. TOTALLY OVERRATED. I AM AMAZED THAT ANYONE IS INTERESTED IS SEEING THEM LIVE OR IN SEEING THEM COMEBACK. BUNCH OF CUNTS IF YOU ASK ME.

  23. eddy says – reply to this


    23

    EXCUSE ME? SINGING IS A SPECIAL TREAT? WTF PEREZ? I THOUGHT THEY WERE A MUSICAL, SINGING ACT… YES?

    IF THEY DON'T SING ON THEIR "TOUR" THEN THEY'RE JUST A BUNCH OF NO-TALENT HACKS.

  24. Spike says – reply to this


    24

    I heard the Spice Girls are going to do a full schlongo scene on their world tour where they are gonna Pole dance, and be Strippers as a part of their show… I might go catch their concert just to see THAT here in L.A. when they play Staples in December. Hell, it might change my solo routine. Stuff on the internet is that they been rehearsing at some well known Strip club in London taking lessons from Strippers. Hell, I even read they might get NUDE. !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhh… more Strippers… how many more Strippers??????????? Lots and lots of Strippers, and famous people stripping and being strippers lately………….. anyone else notice this sudden Craze with Strippers and Famous people? Paris Hilton was Pole dancing the other night at some big club in NY. Cool. I like this . a lot. They're gonna have like a guys entourage dancing with them too. WTF? Ok - that was all good til the guys had to be part of it. Perez? Perez likes that! Glad someone does..

    Perez, of COURSE they lip-synced! Do you honestly believe these women have EVER sang live? That they are more than eye candy?

  27. Sylvia says – reply to this


    27

    Guys, the Spice Girls were so 90s. . . honestly. Plus it's $150 a ticket. Who in the world would pay such a huge amount of green to see talentless women. I'd rather watch a million Heidi Klum shows than a Spice Girls show.

  28. sgunter says – reply to this


    28

    Oh, who cares anymore. They are totally boring. Ms. whathername soccer wife should just give it up. Ugly hair alreally too. And that boring pout face. What is that??? For Chistsakes smiles once in a while. Life is short!

    OMG!

  30. Christie says – reply to this


    30

    RIPOFF!!!!! Hmmmm, I liken them to MILLI VANILLI!! It just goes to show you that they are NO TALENT HACKS. Vicky learned from the best… David Becklame!!! LOSERS!!! Anyone who spends money to see them 'not sing', I'll charge half the ticket price and I look a whole lot better.

  31. Jacob says – reply to this


    31

    Uhh obviously you know nothing about the Spice Girls because if you've seen their concerts you'd know they sing completely live. Know your facts before suggesting that people expect them to lipsynch.

    HEY prezzz I was wondering DID Gisele Walk in the final show? AND KUDOS spice girls =)

  38. Jason says – reply to this


    38

    They probably wanted things to look/sound good since it was a taped show for tv viewing. Also, Perez, if you knew what you were talking about you would know that the Spice Girls DO sing live at their concert. I saw them in concert, after Geri left, and all of the songs were sung live. I have no doubt they will be singing live when the concert starts. Do some fucking research before you slam someone!

    56

    Any act that lip syncs for an audience, usually after charging an insane ticket price, is a complete no-talent fraud. Stay home and enjoy the over-produced disc. Save your money for a concert with real talent.

  80. crystal says – reply to this


    80

    first off i would like everyone to notice the double standard here. yes I am both a britney spears fan and spice girls fan. does anyone remember when britney came back and did her house of blues tour…and lipsynched…and perez bashed her for doing so even though she looked great. here, the spice girls, who we all know can sing, lipsynched and perez loves it.

    just pointing that simple fact out. if anyone is gonna lip synch it should be because they have horrible voices and its a lip synching contest not just to lip synch. and so people dont argue with me i was def upset that britney lip synched and I am even more upset that the spice girls did because we all know the spice girls are better off than britney.

    I was at the show and backstage, and met Victoria. She reeked of cigarettes, and was obviously very nervous, but she was very sweet and had a very offbeat sense of sophisticated humor that I did not expect from her. Scary Spice (forget her name) seemed to be in her own little world and talked on her cell phone the whole time. Ginger and Baby were bubbly as ever, and the Sport one was in her dressing room the whole time.

  86. Truthsayer says – reply to this


    86

    It's fair to assume all music bands, especially those who dance about and are obviously "off mic", lip-sing. Young people today accept mediocrity - even their movies are all just computer generated comic books. As such, true talent is kept off the stages and screen. Just accept whatever Wall Street sells you. Your "artists" are all just corporate spokespeople who need sound technicians to make them heard. As such, blaming Britney for the moral decay of young women is like blaming Ronald McDonald because you've got a fat ass.

    From what I've heard, they always sing their songs live in concert, but not so much on tv….it was common practice in the 90's for UK acts to lip-synch

    but hey…who cares….the SPICE GIRLS are BACK!!!
