This Sunday, the Olympic Games will come to a close, which means we’ll have to wait four more years for our chance to admire swimmer abs, synchronized sparkly costumes, and wear our Lochte Nation sunglasses again, #nojeah. Luckily, the Spice Girls anticipated the world’s post-Olympic depression and decided to reunite for the closing ceremonies on Sunday, knowing that the afterglow of their performance would help get us through the first abysmal day of non-Olympics, at the very least. So, in honor of this momentous occasion, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of our favorite girl groups of all time. Enjoy our tribute to the ladies responsible for “He’s So Fine,” “C’est La Vie,” “It’s Raining Men,” and more.
