I think they are more likeable than girls aloud it's a shame they have not got the promotion they did.
Then again totp & cd:uk were around then I love alot of their songs it's a shame they haven't had a best selling album yet.

I'm not sure they'll do anything as Olly Murs got to #96 then straight out the charts again with Heart Skips a Beat one of his biggest selling and that was with a performance on Letterman, USA tour with 1D, 2 USA music videos (first awful football one and second him following a girl in LA), American rappers Chiddy Bang to appeal to US audience and even more helpings from Simon Cowell to no avail.
What i'm saying is if a song which has been #1 across Europe and with all that promo and oppourtunity can only just get in the chart for 1 week then The Sats really would need a worldwide charting hit and i'm not sure they have one.
Problem with Olly was that (imo) he was associated with One Direction and didn't have a very "cool" image (the dad dancing, personality, very British style, goofy US music video for HSAB) and his sales/airplay peaked at completely different times. After his performance on Good Morning America he shot up to #62 on iTunes, and it was this exact week that his label pulled HSAB from radio to focus on the next single instead.

The Saturdays have a very American image and have the E! documentary, which is a major advantage.

My only gripe with the remixes is that they've shown the recorded version of the song has totally killed the "na na na na na"'s. They sounded pretty amazing live but on the recorded version they sound very robotic and lifeless.

And is it just me or do they have horribly strong Jamaican accents on them???
I agree. When I first heard it I think its Rochelle first? It sounds way too weird...!

I hope its just the remix which makes it sound like this...

I don't really like Olly Murs much. I find him very annoying. When is the E! documentary going to be shown in the UK?

In that case I have some good news and some bad news for you.

The good news is that I prefer many Saturdays' songs to many Olly songs.

The bad news is that I prefer Please Don't Let Me Go even to Issues.

Updates -

The girls had a sold out show at the Roxy Theatre last night. Frankie wasn't there due to a family reason, though.

They sang Chasing Lights, Work, Up, Issues, One Shot, Get Ready Get Set, 30 Days, My Heart Takes Over, Notorious, All Fired Up, Ego and What About Us.

http://www.youtube.com/user/chasinglights27

All clips are on that channel. ^ The E! network were filming the show which looked fun because in the AFU performance a confetti balloon burst with the girls nearly having a heart attack .

They also had a slot on E! News the other day confirming their documentary titled "Chasing The Saturdays" with a premiere date of January 20th.

I hope they do well over there. Some people say really nasty stuff about them, but tbh they seem much more likeable and get on better than Girls Aloud

Are they going to be performing What About Us? I probably won't see it. CNBC don't show Jay Leno any more and they haven't done for a while

Yeah they're performing the single, but no interview. They're also doing a show called Fashion Police or something, too.

I was watching E! News today and the ad for their show was shown about 4 times so they're really getting it as far as E! are concerned

Oddly enough there's been nothing said about a radio tour.

That is the UK E! Though. Though We don't know how much it's promoted on the US network.
