    I forgot about them. Didn't they get picked through some type of reality show? I remember my daughter watching it back in the day.

    You ask and Wikipedia answers...

    "Popstars was an international reality television franchise and a precursor to the Idol series. The series first began in New Zealand in 1999 when producer Jonathan Dowling formed the five member all-girl pop music group TrueBliss. Popstars remains one of the most successful TV show formats of all time with the format being sold to more than 50 countries. The show was the inspiration for Simon Fuller's Idols franchise.

    Eden's Crush was an American girl group who were created on the American television series Popstars which aired on the now defunct WB. The group was formed in late 2000 and consisted of Ana Maria Lombo, Ivette Sosa, Maile Misajon, Nicole Scherzinger and Rosanna Tavarez.

    Hundreds of girls competed to become pop stars in late 2000 on the TV series Popstars, produced by David Foster. The group was narrowed down to five finalists, Ivette Sosa, Maile Misajon, Ana Maria Lombo, Nicole Scherzinger and Rosanna Tavarez, over several prime time episodes. Warner Bros./Sire Records signed the group to a recording contract before the band was named or had finalized its membership, due to the hours of network television exposure the group would receive.

    The group's debut single, "Get Over Yourself" topped the Canadian Singles Chart and peaked at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Love This Way" was released as promotional singles in some radio stations. Their album Popstars was certified gold, and peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The group also guest starred as themselves on the television show Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. Also in 2001 they played as a support act on some dates for *NSYNC's Pop Odyssey Tour and Jessica Simpson's DreamChaser Tour. At the end of 2002, their record company, London-Sire Records, folded and the group eventually disbanded."

    Not sure about any chart placings for these (?) but they could hardly be ignored:

    Kate and Anna McGarrigle - Complainte pour Ste. Catherine

    Strictly speaking, Kirsty MacColl doesn't qualify for this thread as a solo artist but she often painstakingly over layered harmonies much as Brian Wilson had done so that in her case the songs she released could seem like those of a girl group or a female choir. This is her version of Complainte pour Ste. Catherine:

    Don't worry about chart positions - that's just me being me - - no one else even cares!

    Great contribution - very nice transition from Kate (RIP - 2010) and Anna McGarrigle to Kirsty MacColl (RIP - 2000)...

    Thank you.

    Kirsty was from my borough. I saw her live several times. She died on my birthday. And I attended her memorial service in St Martin's in the Fields church in London where I had an opportunity to speak with her mother Jean who fought for so many years in vain to get justice. But that is another long story.....!
