LONDON (AP) -- You know what you want -- what you really, really want -- to cap the Olympic Games? A closing ceremony featuring the Spice Girls.

Organizers won't confirm it, but the 90s "girl power" group have been photographed rehearsing for Sunday's night's show, so an appearance by Baby, Ginger, Scary, Sporty and Posh seems certain.

They'll be joined by a hit parade of British music acts, including The Who, George Michael, Muse, Annie Lennox and the Pet Shop Boys, for what artistic director Kim Gavin calls "a mashed-up symphony" of British hits.

The ceremony ends a Summer Games that have gone far better than many had predicted. Gavin says he wants the ceremony to be "the best after-show party that's ever been."
