The Spice Girls broke the Internet on Monday with the big news that they were reuniting (sans Victoria Beckham) for a six-show reunion tour in the United Kingdom. But not to be overshadowed by this news is the massive bombshell that Geri Halliwell (aka Ginger Spice) dropped on fans.
The 46-year-old singer, who originally left the group in 1998 leading to their eventual breakup (yes, we’re still bitter), took to social media to share the reunion news and managed to blow fans’ minds in the process.
“@spiceigrls -hai-Si-ja-hold tight #spicegirls #tour2019,” she captioned a video of the reunion announcement.
Fans were quick to note that the lyrics that many had thought were “Hi C Ya” or I See Ya” were actually the girls saying, “Yes, yes, yes,” in three different languages — Japanese, Spanish, and German, in fact.
The revelation came as a shock to many lifelong fans, who took to social media to express their disbelief. See the best reactions below:
