Victoria Beckham Was The Only Spice Girl To Have Her Mic Turned Off At Live Shows

Mime it to the left if you're having a good time. Mime it to the right if you know that you feel fine.

As we all know, Victoria Beckham made her name as part of the Spice Girls.


She helped bring girl power, a lot of excellent '00s clothing, and mainly some brilliant songs to our lives.

But now she has revealed something pretty big: Her microphone used to be turned off during their shows and she would be left to mime along while the others sang.

Yes, really. Victoria made the confession while speaking at the Vogue 100 exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London on Thursday night.

According to The Sun, she said producers would silence her mic so only her four bandmates could be heard singing.

She told the host of the evening, Claudia Winkleman: "They used to turn it off and just let the others sing. I got the last laugh – and now my mic is well and truly on, finally."

She will forever be an iconic Spice Girl though.
