Presenting Girlicious! The newest Pussycats
Last night's "Girlicious" winners already have an album cut.
Last night on The CW, Robin Antin made dreams come true for not one, not three, but four girls in the finale of "Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious."
Last year "The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll" made the news when the winner, whose prize was a coveted spot in the group, wasn't asked to join the Pussycat Dolls. Antin and record producer Ron Fair made a statement saying that it was a "mutual" decision to send the lucky winner out on her own. (Whatever happened to that girl . . . ).
This year, they hedged their bets by offering three winners spots on a brand new girl group created just for the series. Unlike most reality shows, there's no audience voting, so the process was much closer to that of a real audition. And hopefully that means Geffen records now has a viable group on their hands.
The winners are: 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. A bit of a surprise since it looked like Chrystina was going to be ousted earlier on.
Even though the finale aired only last night, through the magic of television, the girls have already recorded their first album, single and music video. The video "Like Me," premiered at the end of the series last night and what do you know. . . these girls look and sound great.
The only thing that amazes me is how they managed to keep the winners names a secret since they've been working on the album since the fall of 2007.
