Popstars 2 - Introducing Scene 23 - Interview

Jan 04, 2019

Part I:

If you're like most of North America, you can't get enough of reality TV. Shows like Making the Band and Popstars took reality television to the next level as we watched thousands of teens audition for the chance to be in a pop group. From Making the Band came O-Town, from Popstars came Eden's Crush and now the latest band to come out of Popstars 2 is Scene 23.

Kidzworld got to chat it up with the gang from Scene 23 (Dorothy, Monika, Laurie, Josh and Donovan) and here's what they had to say about the band, who they'd like to go on a date with, who's music they dig and tons of other good stuff.

KW: When did you decide to audition for Popstars 2?

  • Monika: The day before, as soon as I found out it was coming to our town.

KW: What's the advantage to being a mixed group rather than an all girl group like [kwlink] Eden's Crush[/kwlink]?

  • Josh: There's no one else like us. Being mixed raises the creativity and excitement.

KW: What are your plans to promote the first Popstars 2 CD?

  • Scene 23: We're starting with a press tour in New York. We'll be performing, doing promotions and signings for a couple of weeks.

KW: How'd you guys come up with the name Scene 23?

  • Laurie: Monika and I saw a sign with the word "scene" on it and...
  • Josh: We took the word "scene" and our group is made up of two guys and three girls and we were 23 scenes into the show (Popstars 2.)

KW: What was the hardest thing about auditioning?

  • Josh: Getting up and singing in front of someone with so many people auditioning.
  • Laurie: The choreography because I had never taken a dance class.

KW: What advice would you pass along to a person auditioning for a music group?

  • Donovan: Just keep on doing it. Believe in yourself.
  • Monika: Don't be intimidated.
  • Scene 23: Know it can happen. Be patient.

KW: What is your fave pop song?

  • Laurie: Bye Bye Bye (*NSYNC.)
  • Donovan: Pop (*NSYNC.)
  • Josh: Baby One More Time (Britney Spears) and Bye Bye Bye (*NSYNC.)
  • Monika: I'm A Slave 4 U (Britney Spears.)
  • Dorothy: I'm A Slave 4 U (Britney Spears.)

KW: If you could go on a dream date with any celebrity - who would it be?

  • Dorothy: Freddie Prinze Jr. I would like to hang with Britney, as a friend.
  • Laurie: Chris Kirpatrick (*NSYNC) cuz he's funny. As a friend, Britney.
  • Donovan: Brandy for sure. As a friend, Usher - he's cool.
  • Josh: Britney.
  • Monika: No one really.

KW: If you were picked to be on the show Survivor, what would your luxury item be?

  • Laurie: My bunny. Her name is Bun.
  • Donovan: Oodles of Noodles. (Instant noodles pack.)
  • Josh: AMS Molding Paste for my hair.
  • Monika: Mac Lip-Gloss.
  • Dorothy: I'm not sure.
