Charli XCX and Halsey sang a Spice Girls song at Lollapalooza, and the crowd lost its mind
On Sunday, a performance at Lollapalooza brought us the Spice Girls reunion we’ve been dreaming of. Okay, okay, not quite, but it came as close as it gets for now. During the festival, Charli XCX and Halsey covered Spice Girls song and girl power anthem “Wannabe,” and the audience went wild.
The power pop duo came together during Charli’s set at the musical event. “You guys like girl power, right?” she asked the crowd before diving into the first verse solo and inviting Halsey to join her on stage. Apparently the seven words to make an entire music festival lose its mind are:
“YO! I’LL TELL YOU WHAT I WANT!”
The entire sing-along lasted three amazing minutes, and you can watch it below.
The singers will be hitting the road together in September on Halsey’s Hopeless Fountain Kingdom World Tour, so while utterly amazing, the “surprise” duet wasn’t necessarily surprising. Especially after Halsey dropped a pretty obvious hint about the duet on her Instagram page shortly before she joined Charli with the zig-a-zig-ah.
She captioned the photo,
We’re 100% obsessed with this performance! The dance moves are totally on point, and there’s nothing like strong women coming together to pay homage to other strong women. It’s all we want, all we really really want!
If you want to catch more of these two, plus PartyNextDoor, the official tour kicks off September 29th and runs through November 22nd. No ‘scuse us while we go create a Halsey/CharliXCX/Spice Girls playlist on Spotify STAT.
