Chloe x Halle did their best Spice Girls impressions for an epic remote performance at the GLAAD Media Awards on Thursday night.
While Chloe channelled Scary Spice in an animal-print two piece and buns in her hair, Halle opted to take on Posh Spice’s classy demeanor in a figure-hugging gold minidress, as the pair belted out their latest single “Do It”.
They were joined by “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alums Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Mayhem Miller, and Naomi Smalls, who made up the rest of the band by taking on the personas of Sporty Spice, Baby Spice and Ginger Spice respectively.
