After much anticipation, the Spice Girls finally reunited on Sunday for an epic performance during the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics in London.

The all-girl group — comprised of Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell — looked and sounded better than ever as they cruised into Olympic Stadium to belt out arguably their biggest hit ever, “Wannabe.”

Of course, this being one of the most sought-after reunions in recent music history, the Girls kept the party going for one more song, the uber-popular “Spice Up Your Life,” before bidding adieu.

The Spice Girls — who after their show partied until 6AM with fellow-performer Liam Gallagher, according to The Mirror — were just one of many performers to take part in Sunday’s dazzling ceremony. Among the others: boy band One Direction; George Michael; and — yep — Russell Brand.

After the show, Beckham tweeted a photo of the girls celebrating their big performance.

“We did it!! I love u girls so much!!!!! xxx vb” she wrote.
