The iconic girl group’s ’90s hits are giving life to a new jukebox musical.

The musical theater world is about to get a massive injection of girl power! All five Spice Girls — Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell — reunited Jan. 26 in London to reveal details about Viva Forever, a new musical premiering on the West End this fall.

Featuring the Spice Girls songs we all know and love, Viva Forever tells the story of a group of friends who enter a televised talent show. And with a powerhouse team behind the production — it’s produced by Judy Craymer, who brought us Mamma Mia!, and written by Absolutely Fabulous star Jennifer Saunders — you know it’s going to be amazing.

“They sing it better than us,” Mel B. told reporters of the musical’s killer cast, to which the “other” Melanie added, “It’s better than we could ever have imagined.”

We know you’re excited about this musical — you’d be a damn fool not to be — but which song are you most excited to hear? Drop your favorite Spice Girls tune in the comments section below!
