Star-Studded Olympics Closing Ceremony!

The Spice Girls, One Direction, Jessie J And More Rock London…

We’ve all been glued to our screens for the momentous sporting event this year – so what better way to celebrate the Olympics closing ceremony than with an epic bunch of the world’s biggest music stars!

And there’s nothing quite like Britain’s beloved boyband One Direction when it comes to gearing up a live crowd!

The popular five piece, who performed on top of a lorry, rocked the Olympic Stadium as they belted out their smash hit single ‘What Makes You Beautiful.’

But, the ‘X-Factor’ band had some stiff competition for best performance of the night thanks to 90s favourite girl group the Spice Girls!

Reuniting for one of the most talked about gigs of the year, Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton made a very welcome return to the stage as they sang and danced on top of traditional London black cabs to their first ever hit ‘Wannabe,’ followed by ‘Spice Up Your Life.’

Also wowing fans at the killer bash was Jessie J, who joined legendary rockers Queen for ‘We Will Rock You,’ pop icon George Michael, Oasis star Liam Gallagher, Muse and many more!
