Melanie C says Spice Girls should be acknowledged at the Olympics
Melanie C has revealed that she would be disappointed if the Spice Girls aren't represented in some way at the forthcoming Olympic Games.
A list of the tracks set to feature in the opening ceremony's playlist was leaked recently and the Spice Girls did not make the list.
Speaking to the Mirror, Melanie C said that the Spice Girls "represented Britain in the 90s" and therefore should be part of the celebrations. She said:
"I don't know exactly where this list has come from, and obviously sometimes things come out that aren't quite right. But I'd be really upset if the Spice Girls weren't included in the Olympics, whether it be the opening or closing ceremonies or any other playlists, because I think we absolutely represented Britain in the 90s. We literally flew the flag – and Geri even wore it – around the globe."
She continued: "We were proud to be British and to be successful internationally, and we were the last band probably to do that. So I think it would be a real shame if we weren't acknowledged in some way at the Olympics."
