Eva Longoria Does Soap Opera–Style Reading of Spice Girls' 'Wannabe': Watch

The Spice Girls' debut album Spice will turn 20 later this year, and Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria is starting the celebration early. Sticking thematically with Longoria's new NBC series TelenovelaMashable has filmed a reading of the lyrics to "Wannabe," but in the style of a soap opera. (Now's a good time to note that she appeared in almost 150 episodes of The Young and the Restless.)

Opening with a gigantic, theatrical laugh, Longoria goes on to perform the lyrics over dramatic piano with pointed stares. By the end, she's sobbing. And yeah, all the zig-a-zag-ahhh bits made the cut.

In January, Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham shot down reunion rumors, with a rep saying "her focus is now very much her family and fashion business." In late 2015, Mel "Scary Spice" B said "it would be rude not to celebrate" the group's big 20th anniversary.
