How to Form a Girl Band

In 2008, Louis Walsh (of X Factor judge fame) and Kian Walsh decided they wanted to form a new girl band. They held auditions in Dublin, Ireland in July and 3000 girls auditioned! About the auditions, Louis said, “We’re looking for talent. Undiscovered talent, young with a good attitude and who will look good. We don’t want good - we want great.” The five lucky lasses were announced in December 2008 to be Jodi Albert, Sharon Condon, Corrina Durran, Leigh Learmont and Kasey Smith!

Reality Television

Even though it looks super fun to be in a girl band, it’s a lot of work too! Even though the band was formed in 2008, it’s taken two whole years for them to get their debut single and album ready! Leigh Learmont even revealed that it took them a year and a half to come up with the band name Wonderland! Cameras followed them around while they were producing their debut album and was aired on a reality show called “Louis Walsh and Kian Egan’s Next Big Thing” on ITV2 in the UK and TV3 in Ireland.

Debut Album

We’re only a couple of weeks away from the release of their debut album on 7 March in the UK! Their debut single, “Not a Love Song” has been described as “fun and cheeky with a rocky edge” by Jodi Albert and Corrina says “We’re quite casual and laid back girls. We sing music that’s quite heartfelt and we really want to get into our performances.” Check out a clip of them performing "Nothing Moves Me Anymore"!

The girls will be touring with Westlife, Boyzone and Taylor Swift on UK and Irish tour dates this March after touring with Westlife last summer. Stay tuned for more from this fresh new girl band!

Hi there! I am Rose, (If you have somehow not seen me around so far) an avid writer and roleplayer here on KW. I've recently realized that I love critique. It's one of my favorite things to do and receive. And not so recently, I realized there's a lot of OCs that need improvement out there.  Like a lot. It's kind of scary. So I've decided to start reviewing these OCs, both the good and the bad. But as always, I have some standards.  I will review OCS from these fandoms: Dr. Who Undertale Danganronpa RWBY  Soul Eater Warrior Cats Hunger Games Divergent Harry Potter Vocaloid Black Butler MLP (Yes I am a bit of a closet brony shh don't tell anyone) Ava's Demon (Although I doubt anyone knows what this is) Percy Jackson Adventure Time Steven Universe Gravity Falls 99% of Disney Attack On Titan Touhou Avatar (The four elements and stuff not the weird blue people.) Pokemans Original Works Ask me if I review anything that isnt on this list. But before people start freaking out, I do not review LOTR, Supernatural, Narnia, or Sherlock.  Please put your character in an RP style form including name, personality, backstory, and any fandom specific info. If your character is in one of the fandoms listed go ahead and post right away. I will respond ASAP with how you can improve your OC and a general rating. Be prepared for criticism. Well, go ahead and start posting your OCs!

Disney is good in my opinion but I feel like each time I watch a disney movie that it just don't want to make me watch it again. Like when I was younger I would watch my favorite disney movie a billion times but now I can barely make it through watching the same movie/episode twice.
