UK – The UK’s national free newspaper, Metro, today hinted that top popstars Girls Aloud have Eurovision 2013 in their sights. Journalist Neil Sean doesn’t go on to give any more details. Would such a big name act consider representing the UK? Could it be their breakthrough into Europe? Last year’s similar rumours of all-girl pop group Atomic Kitten never materialised as the UK sent Englebert Humperdinck instead.
Girls Aloud are an English-Irishpop girl group based in London. They were created through the ITV1 talent show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. The group consists of Cheryl Cole (née Tweedy), Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh. They are signed to Fascination Records. The group have had 22 consecutive top 11 singles in the United Kingdom, including 4 number ones. All five girls have undertaken solo careers, with Cheryl being the most successful as an XFactor judge and her solo music career. The group was also named the UK’s biggest selling girl group of the 21st century.
