Spicing up London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony

All right, so the whole thing was rather cheesy and definitely too long, but the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics had a few special moments.

And among them surely had to be the totally OTT but nonetheless electric performance by the Spice Girls.

Back together for a one-off, the five women who took Britain and the world by storm in the 90s with their manufactured "Girl Power" reminded everyone present and those watching of the contribution they had made to pop music when they were in their heyday.

It was as chaotic and almost as messy as the whole show orchestrated by artistic director Kim Gavin and designed to show off to the rest of the world the very best of British music - mainly pop but lip service was also paid to few other genres.

All in all though it was fun - as was the Spice Girls arrival"singing" from the rooftops of five separate London taxi cabs.

For anyone who missed it or wants to see it again and again, here's the clip - complete with French commentary - broadcast on TF1
