Pussycat Dolls Biography

The Pussycat Dolls have been around a lot longer than their hit song Don't Cha. We're taking a look back at the making of the dolls - from dancers to divas!

The Pussycat Dolls - Dancing Dayz

The Pussycat Dolls began as a dance troupe back in 1995, often performing with guest vocalists, or to '50s and '60s pop standards. Pussycat Girls founder Robin Antin managed to snag the girls gigs on music videos, in clubs and on TV. They got their big break when some of the Dolls appeared in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle dancing to the Pink Panther theme song.

The Pussycat Dolls - Sing it, Sister

Carmen Electra often performed as the groups lead performer, but they went their separate ways when the Dolls were re-branded as a pop and R&B group in the early 2000s. In 2003, Nicole Scherzinger (former winner of UK singing competition Popstars) was recruited as the group's lead singer. The group had seen plenty of girls come and go, but the Dolls were now complete; Nicole was joined by original-member Carmit Bachar, as well as Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Melody Thornton.

The Pussycat Dolls - The Search for the Next Doll

The Dolls enlisted the help of the producers of America's Next Top Model to create a reality show based around their search for the next Pussycat Doll who will sing with the group on their next album. The series premiered March 6, 2007 on The CW.

The Pussycat Dolls - Kitty Controversy

In 2006, toy-maker Hasbro was set to launch a line of dolls based on the Pussycat Dolls, but after a successful campaign by the groups Dads and Daughters and Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood the plan was scrapped. The groups successfully argued that the Dolls were too overtly sexual to be marketed to young girls.

    Oh my gosh. Its been so long since I've seen any halo fans like me, I'm definitely able to do voice overs in the cast but it kills me so much that I dont got my 360 live anymore but instead on xbox one. Hopefully I'll do something about it omg. Im in love with halo machinimas such as Red Vs Blue and so on.
