Victoria Beckham led the new-look Spice Girls in a rousing comeback performance at the Victoria Secret's lingerie show in Los Angeles last night.
Kitted out in military-style outfits the girls performed their hit 'Stop' as models such as Heidi Klum wearing rather less paraded up and down the catwalk.
The girls put on a show worthy of their Hollywood setting, treating the audience to two glamorous costume changes courtesy of Posh's designer pal Roberto Cavalli, as they performed two songs including new single 'Headlines'.
Judging by the applause, the audience - including Enrique Iglesias, Eva Longoria, Hilary and Haylie Duff, Hayden Panettiere, Slash and Jason Statham - loved it, and if anyone noticed that the girls seemed to be lipsyncing they were too polite to mention it.
The host of Simon Cowell's American Idol show Ryan Seacrest said after the show: "I'm in love with Victoria Beckham, which is probably an issue for David."
"They could have stood there and done nothing and I'd have been happy," he said of the group.
"They were fantastic," said one fan. "It's like they've never been away and they all look simply stunning."
Did the girls enjoy themselves? "It's very emotional to be back on stage together, it evokes a lot of memories," said 31-year-old Emma Bunton.
Nearly a decade after the five-member group became four — when Geri Halliwell left Mel C, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham — the Spice Girls reunited for a greatest hits album, released this week, and a world reunion tour, starting in Vancouver on Dec. 2.
Mel C admitted the girls were "nervous".
She said: "It's quite surreal, but everything has come flooding back, all of the songs, and being with each other and rehearsing together, it just feels very comfortable.
"We have got nothing to prove. We just want to come back and live out the good old days."
Mel dismissed rumours of diva-like antics and in-fighting as a "load of c***."
She said: "We've never been divas.
"Our reputation in the business is that we all work very hard and we know that we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for everybody who was involved in our project."
Earlier this week LA-based Posh posted a new message on the girl group's official blog giving fans an update on the reunion tour preparations - and a glimpse of how husband David and the boys are coping with her hectic schedule.
Posh wrote: "I'm currently sat in our rehearsal studio and I am about to have another fitting with the Cavalli team for our costumes.
"The other girls will kill me if I give anything away and I don't want to ruin any surprises... but they look amazing! Roberto and his team have done us proud.
"Rehearsals are going really well, I can't believe that there are only a few weeks until the first show in Vancouver.
"It's really scary but exciting at the same time. "David and the boys have been laughing at me because I've been wandering around the house listening to my iPod and practising the routines.
"We are including some parts of the old routines but bringing them up to date a bit.
"All of the kids have been down to rehearsals. We have an area where they all hang out... its a Spice creche!
"My boys are so excited about the tour, they can't wait and I'm really looking forward to them seeing me up on stage. I just hope I don't get over emotional when I see them!"
Posh went on to plug her cameo appearance on hit US TV show Ugly Betty which airs in the UK later this month.
She said: "Ugly Betty was shown over here in the US on Friday, I had such a laugh filming it. If you're in the UK then you will be able to see the episode on Channel 4 at 9pm on Friday 23 November.
"Friday is BBC Children In Need day in the UK and we will performing from LA. We will be doing two songs, our new single Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) and also Stop - which is going to look fantastic.
"I can't give too much away but it's definitely going to be worth watching."
And in other news, Scary Spice was voted into the final four of the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, and is one of the hot favourites to lift the Mirror Ball trophy.
She is joined in the last four by singer Marie Osmond, actress Jennie Garth and Indianapolis 500 champion Helio Castroneves.
Mel, 33, showed she hadn't lost any of her scary ways when asked what she would do if she didn't get through.
She jokingly said: "I'm going to beat them all up!"
