Idina Menzel has already had a pretty epic run in her career. From Rent to Wicked, Glee and Frozen, the singer/actress/songwriter has pretty much done it all. Well, except for one role she really, really wants. "I hear the @spicegirls might need a 5th," she tweeted on Thursday night (Nov. 15) alongside a video of her walking the frigid streets of Washington, D.C. with two friends while trying to learn the lyrics to "Wannabe" and puzzling over what "ah-ziggaha-zigga" means.

Menzel, who recently collaborated with Josh Groban on the song "Lullaby" for the star-studded, bilingual Singing You Home album in support of family reunification, seems like a good fit for the group, which is down a woman. As you likely know by now, Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham has decided to sit this reunion out, leaving Baby (Emma Bunton), Sporty (Melanie Chisholm), Scary (Melanie Brown)  and Ginger (Geri Halliwell), as as quartet.

The British girl group set the world on fire recently when they announced that they will be playing a string of UK reunion stadium shows with opening act Jess Glynne. The original six dates were recently expanded to include five more gigs due to overwhelming demand. The Spice Girls last performed together during the 2012 Olympics in London.
