Stop right now, thank you very much! Everyone's all-time favorite girl group, The Spice Girls, are reportedly on the hunt for somebody with a human touch and sick dance moves.

The '90s girl band, who catalyzed a worldwide obsession with platform shoes and Union Jack dresses, are gearing up for their Spice World UK Stadium Tour, which is scheduled for later this year. The group will make pit stops in major UK cities, including Dublin, Cardiff, Manchester, and London. Now, Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) — sadly, Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) won't join this time around — are in the market for backup dancers to help spice up their tour. You guys, this could be our chance to shine!

If you're one of the lucky people who scored tickets for the tour, you also have a chance to get on stage with the girls. According to iNews, the legendary group is looking to hire "self-expressive, strong, unique, diverse and intelligent" performers. Dancers should be able to commit for two months — April 8 to June 16 — to be considered.

What's more, the group is widening its pool. They're not only looking for professional dancers, they're also open to less established boppers. As long as you have the passion, you could be in the running!

If you think you have what it takes, you can send your CV and headshot to choreographer Paul Roberts at auditions@paulroberts.co. Potential candidates will be asked to attend auditions, which take place from January 21 to 22.

Get this: The Spice Girls are also on the mission to find a replacement for Beckham — at least for the time being.

In an interview with The GuardianPosh Spice shared she won't be able to join the tour as she's preoccupied with other commitments. She probably won't even have time to make a cameo. Not even a hologram Coachella-style. "What I do now is my passion and a full-time job. I'm excited to see it, though," she said. But that doesn't mean she won't have all the FOMO while the girls are on tour. "I’m sure when I’m there and they are on stage, there will be a part of me that feels a bit left out," she confessed. "Because even after all this, a part of me will always be a Spice Girl."

The Spice Girls want to stay a full quintet, though, so they're looking for a fifth member, and according to British tabloids, there's already one lead contender. It's none other than Saara Aalto, a Finnish singer/songwriter, and former The Voice and X Factor finalist. 

"They want to have a fifth member for the tour. I was like, ‘Is this a real question?’ It’s insane!" Aalto, also a self-professed Spice Girls superfan, said of her conversation with Melanie. "She said there’s room for someone who can really sing. I just thought it was incredible she said that."

The group also reportedly plans on inviting some special guests. "I'm the one [that’s] always thinking about stuff like that, always," Mel told E! Online a few months back. "And I'm the first one to say, ‘Let's do this and we'll introduce Taylor Swift on one song or Adele or Katy Perry.’ I think that's a great idea 'cause at the end of the day, it has to be a celebration."

Swift performing "Wannabe" with the Spice Girls on stage? Sign us up! That's not something you see every day!

Quick question though, girls, can fans also be in the running as the fifth (albeit temporary) Spice Girl? Maybe just a single-song cameo, like what Justin Bieber does when he performs "One Less Lonely Girl."

Someone make it happen, please!
