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 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.
