Spice Girls Vs. One Direction: Who Rocked The Olympics Better?

It was a battle of the bands — and the sexes — Aug. 12 during the closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics games.

Pop royalty past and present collided during the closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics, but if you ask me — and Twitter — it was The Spice Girls and One Direction who clearly led the pack.

The HollywoodLife.com staff fangirl’d all over the Spice Girls’ long-awaited reunion — they looked even more amazing than when they came together back in 2008 — but we also sang along to 1D’s infectious “What Makes You Beautiful.” (We’re waiting for that song to get old, and enjoying it until it does.)

Which of the UK’s fivesomes did you prefer? The legendary Spice Girls, or legends-in-the-making One Direction? Cast your vote below, then drop me a comment with your reviews of each performance.

One Direction all the way. They’re amazaynly talented and certainly deserved to perform longer. You can’t do much in like hardly 2 minutes. Still, they managed to rock the stage and make Directioners worldwide proud. It is great to see that they have made it this far in such a short time. And something tells me that they will be the best boy-band in the world for as long as they’re together.

you’re comparing 2 things that CANNOT be compared, one is new talent and the other is old school-classic pop

They both suck -_-

They both suck. Spice girls are like clones of Brittney and One Direction are like clones of Justin Bieber. They both suck and they are talent-less and suck at singing. In a few years One Direction will never be mentioned ever again. The Who or even John Lennon are so talented you wouldn’t believe it. So talented the Spice Girls and One Direction combined! Both just ruined my day.

I suppose you don’t know how to appreciate people’s talents. I mean, not to be rude, but if you’re so awesome, try making it to perform in the Olympics. Can you?

I am saying the SG, because I was young when they came out.
Blast from the past.

Both groups gave good performances though.
