Adele freestyles an impromptu bit of Spice Girls on her ’25’ tour – watch

The actual Spice Girls loved it

While in Amsterdam on Friday night (June 3) Adele performed an impromptu bit of ‘Spice Up Your Life’ by The Spice Girls.

The London-born singer was caught in a fan video saying ‘Stop it, I’m not a Spice Girl” as the crowd chanted “Spice Girls” at her.

Adele then started rapping, “Colours of the world, spice up your life, every boy and girl, spice up your life, people of the world, spice up your life” before intoning, “Oh you lot are great”.


The video was posted on the @AdeleNowUK Twitter account, which Mel C from the Spice Girls retweeted with a series of heart-eyes emojis.

Geri Halliwell also picked up the tweet, saying “Go Adele”.

Watch the short video below:

This Spice Girls moment comes among a string of other unique points on Adele’s ’25’ tour, which, at the same gig in Amsterdam, also saw her pull up a fan on stage only to recognise her as the daughter of her former celloist, who she hadn’t seen since the fan was a toddler.

Adele has also played host to marriage proposals, selfie opportunities with fans, and even offering to be the surrogate mother of a gay couple.


No doubt we’ll be in for more of the same when Adele heads to Worthy Farm later this month to headline the Saturday night of Glastonbury.

The singer’s headline slot marks a happy u-turn in her views on the festival, after she previously admitted that she was reluctant to headline Glastonbury.

She said: “I think I have made myself pretty clear on Glastonbury. The crowds are too big – I don’t know if I could do it.”
