The Spice Girls: Then

It wasn't so long ago that five British girls were telling international pop fans to "spice up your life!" The Spice Girls (pictured at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards) were formed in 1994 by audition; their first single, "Wannabe," made these sassy ladies the only British band to debut higher on the U.S. charts than The Beatles in 1963. The band -- made up of (from left to right) Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell, Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown, Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton and Melanie "Sporty Spice" Chisolm -- became a phenomenon, with their "girl power" slogan and sexy-strong image turning everything they touched, from dolls to video games, to platinum. After two #1 albums and a Spice Girls movie, Ginger left the band due to "differences;" three years later, following the release of the ironically named "Forever" (2000), the band separated. They reunited for a world tour in 2007.
