The Spice Girls and Pavarotti

The Spice Girls made their debut on this day in 1996 on the British show Top of the Pops.

Above they sing Viva Forever with Hairy Spice, who also was known as Luciano Pavarotti. He seems vaguely confused by the whole thing. It looks like he’s thinking, “I’m supposed to be doing a concert. What are these pretty women doing on stage?” At about the 1:30 mark, Pavarotti apparently decides to sing an entirely different song than the girls.
