The Flirts were a female Menudo-like trio created and masterminded by Hi-NRG mogul Bobby "O" Orlando. (aka Bobby O). The group, which comprised one blonde, one brunette, and one redhead, are best known for their Hi-NRG tunes "Passion", "Danger", "Helpless", and "Jukebox (Don't Put Another Dime)".
Orlando conceived the idea for The Flirts, wrote the songs, played the instruments, and produced the tracks. He then auditioned girls to be the face of the group. Orlando often called in the services of professional session singers to sing the vocals for the tracks because most of the performers were trained as dancers, models, or actresses. The Flirts went through numerous lineup changes and with every album release and tour, some girls left the group while others stayed. The Flirts released six studio albums from 1982–1992 and assorted singles. They made several international tours in the 1980s, often in the club circuit, and would usually lip-synch or sing alongside the recordings.
