Hang on... what on earth are they doing at the VMA's?
Their agent got them there to see if they could get a calloration that will get them some exposure in the States, I suspect.

Oh my.

Too much... http://pbs.twimg.com/media/A2JWhoqCUAAx41D.png

First British girl group to hit the red carpet at the VMAs since The Spice Girls, who several American interviewers at the awards have said they're like. Ha, stick that in yer pipes and smoke it haters. They're not doing you any harm by chasing their dream. Why bother posting if you don't like them or their music? Good for them, whether it works out or not at least they tried and actually put effort in.

They showed up for an award show where they are nominated for... absolutely nothing.



Hilarious. Yep, definitely a girlband.

First performance of 'What About Us'. They got tons of great reviews and people said the song was MASSIVE live.

So every time you post something negative about a singer, can we quote this back to you?

The Saturdays have zero chance of making it in America. Bland, lifeless, uninspiring, average vocals, lackluster choreography and faceless music has pretty much guaranteed that.

However, good on them for chasing the dream...

Yet they've got an E! documentary, support of Perez Hilton, a radio tour, most likely promotion on Ryan Seacrest's channel and a very good single behind them? I wouldn't say they have zero chance, but even if they flop at least they tried.

I would hardly say lackluster choreography. That choreo in the video above is pretty good, as is the vocals (even though it's LQ). Plus, they're a pop girl group, they're not really expected to come out with deep music. They're supposed to be releasing fun, pop songs.

But you clearly know best.

The choreo is pretty good? They look like five friends that have had one too many cherry lambrinis on a night out! Their vocals aren't great at all, besides Rochelle and Una, Vanessa is now very av erage and the other two are horrific.

The Sugbabes and Stooshe have managed in the past to come up with something interesting and relatively deep.

Girls Aloud are releasing fun, pop songs. The difference is that the actually do it well. They aren't the most talented, but they have the full package, when the Sats dont.

I wasn't going to argue with your own opinions, no matter how ill formed they are, until I read the bit about Sugababes and Stooshe. Sugababes haven't been 'deep' for years, pop music has changed and they changed with it. The Saturdays are no more shallow than Sugababes' recent material.

Stooshe are so deep, they recorded a song called F**k Me and then changed a few lyrics for radio but left the orgasmic noises in. They now seem intent on releasing watered down Amy Winehouse type productions and passing them off as 'Motown inspired', hardly innovative music.

"The Saturdays in America"

Is this another one of those ITV2 fly-on-the-wall shows? Can't imagine it's anything else

Who knows. That wasn't my point if you read my reply properly. The poster I responded to said it was on ITV 2

I think they are doing this well.
It is late obviously but they are getting good exposure, so I hope it goes well for them.

Hopefully the show gets a worldwide release and give them exposure in Europe, Asia and Australia

Good luck to them
Their music is awful at the moment so if they go back to the music they did for their first two albums, they may have a chance. Their are no girlbands in America at the moment so they may make an impact

Bit late in my view. Shouldn't they be in America when they had 1st album out. I am sure if they made it the fans they get might wonder why we hadn't had them before and want the previous albums they released. As for being a success who knows. Good luck to them but i don't like it when bands here go to America years later after being a success here.
