Biography

London, United Kingdom (2002 – 2013)

Girls Aloud were a critically acclaimed British-Irish comprising Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding. The band was formed on the reality TV show Popstars: The Rivals, in which a girl band was pitted against a boy band in the race for the UK Christmas number one single in 2002. Girls Aloud came out on top, with their debut single Sound of the Underground hitting number one and earning them a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the first girl band in British history to debut at number one. As well as the fastest a band has gone from being formed to getting a number one and the first band to get a Christmas number one with their debut single.

The band has released five studio albums - Sound of the Underground (2003), What Will the Neighbours Say? (2004), Chemistry (2005), Tangled Up (2007) and Out of Control (2008), plus a Greatest Hits compilation, The Sound Of Girls Aloud (2006). Major singles include Sound of the Underground, Love Machine, Biology, Something Kinda Ooooh, Call the Shots and The Promise. The girls have a record 20 consecutive top 10 singles under their collective belt now, including 4 number ones. Their lowest charting top ten single, The Loving Kind, reached number 10. However, the girls 21st single Untouchable ended their top ten streak, peaking at 11 in May. Despite this, up to week ending 21st June, it has outsold top ten singles (in order of release and highest peak in the UK chart) Wake Me Up (no.4), Long Hot Summer (no.7), See the Day (no.9), Whole Lotta History (no.6) and I Think We’re Alone Now, (no.4).
