Sky Ferreira, Loreen + Girls Aloud: 5 Must-Hear Pop Songs Of The Week
MTV News - over 4 years
It's Tuesday! Time for another round of "5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week"! This week's roundup includes a moody cut from an alt-pop princess, a Knowles family-approved remix, a killer cut from this year's Eurovision winner, and at last, the return of the Almighty Aloud. Go girls, g-g-go, go, go!   1.) Girls Aloud, "Something New" Three years after announcing a "yearlong hiatus" (the math there is a bit dodgy), the flawless fivesome known as Girls Aloud -- the Almighty Aloud, if you will -- have at long last returned to reclaim their position on the throne as one of the U.K.'s most successful girl groups ever. How so? With something new, of course. While the mammoth, synth-infused beats of their new single recall Calvin Harris and Lady Gaga, the Xenomania-penned track remains classic Aloud, like a mix between 10 of their hits. All the signature traits of the Aloud are there: Queen Nadine Coyle's major diva-size pipes, Cheryl Cole's aggressive "street" tude, and Sarah Hardin ...

Girls Aloud set to record Children In Need single
Gigwise - almost 5 years
Girls Aloud's much-discussed comeback looks likely to be this year's Children In Need charity single, according to tabloid reports. The Sun newspaper claims that Cheryl Cole is due to return to sharing duties with bandmates Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Kimberley Walsh and record the tune for this year's charity event. The band have previously spoken of a reunion in 2013 to mark their 10-year anniversary. "The plan is to release it in November," says a source. "It is looking like it will be an original song. Bosses think it will be the perfect comeback hit as well as helping a good cause." Cheryl Cole is currently promoting her third album 'A Million Lights' and recently released the video for her first single from the collection, 'Call My Name'. Fellow bandmates Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts also attempted solo careers, but struggled alone and failed to score any notable hits. The girlband's absense from the charts has been largely blamed on Nadine, who ...

    Age 20
    Harding joined Nadine Coyle, Cheryl Tweedy, Nicola Roberts, and Kimberley Walsh to comprise the new girl group Girls Aloud, formed through the show by a public vote on 30 November 2002. The group's debut single "Sound of the Underground" peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart, becoming the 2002 Christmas number one. Girls Aloud hold the record for the shortest time between formation and reaching number one.

They also achieved seven certified albums and have been nominated for five Brit Awards, winning the 2009 Best Single for "The Promise". The group's musical style is pop, but throughout their career they had experimented with electropop and dance-pop. Girls Aloud's collaborations with Brian Higgins and his songwriting and production team Xenomania earned the group critical acclaim, due to an innovative approach to mainstream pop music. The group became one of the few UK reality television acts to achieve continued success, amassing a fortune of £30 million by May 2010. Guinness World Records lists them as "Most Successful Reality TV Group" in the 2007 edition. They also hold the record for "Most Consecutive Top Ten Entries in the UK by a Female Group" in the 2008 edition, and are credited again for "Most Successful Reality TV Group" in the 2011 edition.

These finalists then took to the stage participating in weekly Saturday night live performances (alternating weekly between the girls and boys). Each week the contestant polling the fewest phone votes was eliminated, until the final line-ups of the groups emerged.
    Harding also entered FHMs High Street Honeys 2002, the magazine's national beauty contest.
    More Details Hide Details Her pictures appeared in the top 100, but Harding withdrew upon achieving success on Popstars.
