Kristen Bell & Ellen DeGeneres Audition for Spice Girls Tour

The Spice Girls are reuniting for their 20th anniversary, but only as a trio named GEM (Mel C and Victoria Beckham opted out). So, when Kristen Bell (star of NBC's new sitcom The Good Place) co-hosted Ellen DeGeneres' show on Monday, they decided they'd audition for the two open spots. Their pop star names? Fresh Garlic Spice and Basil Spice!

"We're the perfect choice for the new Spice Girls," DeGeneres said. "I know a lot of spices: smoked paprika, rosemary, thyme, chili peppers, nutmeg, oregano."

Bell and DeGeneres dance awkwardly and mock the unintelligible skat of the 1996 jam "Wannabe" in a fake audition tape.

So what do you think? Do you think that Fresh Garlic Spice and Basil Spice have a chance?
