PUSSYCAT DOLLS PRESENT: GIRLICIOUS made the dreams of four young female hopefuls a reality when judges Robin Antin, Lil’ Kim and Ron Fair announced them as members of the newly formed recording group, Girlicious, on the season finale of The CW’s music/reality series last night.
Tiffanie Anderson, 18, of Los Angeles, California; Nichole Cordova, 18, of Houston, Texas; Natalie Mejia, 19, of Diamond Bar, California and Chrystina Sayers, 20, of San Diego, California beat out thousands of girls to become part of Girlicious. Originally, Girlicious was planned as a three-person group, but judges decided the four finalists were so good together that the group was expanded. Signed to Geffen Records, the girls have already recorded their first album and filmed their first music video. The group’s first single and music video, “Like Me,” made its world premiere following the airing of the finale episode. Though the reality show recently ended, the girls have been recording their debut album, “Girlicious,” since fall of 2007, which is scheduled to drop on July 1.
Looking for singers with dance ability and superstar charisma, Antin and Geffen Records Chairman Ron Fair launched a nationwide search for the most talented girls in America. Fifteen finalists were chosen to compete for a spot in the new group and the opportunity to go from obscurity to international stardom. Thousands of girls lined up with the dream of landing one of three coveted spots in the new band Girlicious. Each week the girls had to sing, dance and practice choreography with Antin and Pussycat Dolls co-choreographer Mikey Minden, as well as perfect their vocal techniques to impress the judges.
