The reunion performance got a wonderful reception. Check out what some newspapers and websites have to say:
• Telegraph: The verdict on BBC Children in Need 2014. Best moment: S Club 7’s reunion montage
• BuzzFeed: You get the picture…. They played a medley of their hits from “Reach” to “Bring It All Back” and “S Club Party” and it was a-mazing. Now for a tour please, S Club!
• DigitalSpy: S Club 7 have reunited for a medley of hits on BBC Children in Need. The classic line-up of the pop group made their first appearance together in over 12 years tonight (November 14) at Elstree Centre in Hertfordshire.
• The Mirror: After a successful live comeback on BBC Children in Need, the general consensus is that Rachel, Jon and co. should Bring It All Back for good. S Club 7 reunited for their first live TV performance in over a decade and the highly anticipated comeback was all the rage on Twitter. Fans of the ’90s group admitted to being taken back to their childhoods as they sang and danced along to hits such as Bring It All Back, S Club Party and Don’t Stop Movin’ on BBC Children in Need. The chart-topping group looked like they hadn’t missed a beat as they threw shapes and proved there really is no party like an S Club party.
• Independent.co.uk: The Script might have made history as the first band to perform live in the Queen Vic. And Boyzone might have been sporting some impressive facial hair. But the musical event everyone has been talking about this evening was the reunion of S Club 7. The Nineties teen pop sensations – performing together for the first time since 2003 – reminded us that there ain’t no party like an S Club Party.
• RantLifeStyle: For almost six glorious minutes, Tina Barrett, Jon Lee, Paul Cattermole, Hannah Spearitt, Bradley Macintosh, Rachel Stevens, and Jo O’Meara tore up the stage after a 12-year-long break, while performing a medley of some of their most recognizable hits. While slightly shaky during some moments (hey, it has been a while!), the overall performance was mostly pure nostalgic bliss.
• Huffington Post: The band’s highly-anticipated comeback was one of the highlights of last night’s show and plenty of fans took to Twitter to share their excitement at seeing the S Club 7 performing together again – and they have plenty of celeb fans too.
