Lea Salonga

And then there were five ... this could be the countdown to unveiling Asia's 'Spice Girls'

Depending on who you ask, the Spice Girls phenomenon of the 1990s was either the best or worst thing ever. Well, Hong Kong can make the proud (or shameful) claim that 'the next Spice Girls' may have formed on Monday night at Hitec in Kowloon Bay.
