Himself and Cowell are always competing and it seems Fuller is trying to compete with Cowell's girlgroups Little Mix and Fifth Harmony. Fuller worked with JC Chasez (NSYNC, America’s Best Dance Crew) and Golden Globe-winning, Grammy-nominated songwriter Jimmy Harry (Madonna, P!nk, Britney Spears) in creating this group. These three guys have now developed this girl group, with the hope of world wide domination

So which Girlgroups are better. Will Fuller win this Battle ?

Here is Girl Radical's first single "Don't Get me Wrong"

They are trying to go down the KPOP route 11 members!

The 1st lines of each verse is basically 'Complicated' sped up isn't it?

It reminds me of Icona Pop "I Love it" And I think it is a buzz single to show what their sound will be like

Weak, undistinctive vocals, forgettable chorus, poor production, way-too many members and that rap section is laughable. This is gonna flop....hard.

I couldn't finish it because the song isn't great...but I like that there's a lot of them, it's different (for non-japanese/korean markets). I kind of think they'll be in competition with Cimorelli (if they ever take off) rather than Little Mix or Fifth Harmony.

They're no new Spice Girls though, Fuller can do better than that.

considering the person who produced the song that is quite surprising

It's alright but nothing special. Maybe they'll get better as time goes on, who knows?

I actually quite like the song, but the video made it seem like they were a hundred member strong group, no one stood out.

The song would do well, if not for so many members, needs to limit to five and much better production needed

I really like the track, but that video is just awful. I see what they were thinking but it didn't quite work did it?

The group look fantastic though! The number of members isn't a problem at all.

Shockingly bad and cringeworthy.

Fake smiles, trying to be kooky and cute and attempting to cover almost every demograph = pleasing nobody. The name is awful aswell.

Also, Simon Fuller didn't create the Spice Girls (although no doubt they wouldn't have been as successful as they were on a global scale without him). But they approached him after ditching the team who auditioned them and set them up (father and son Chris and Bob Herbert). And by the time they went to Fuller there was already a buzz about them in the industry after their 1994 showcase for record companies/industry people (albeit under the name 'Touch').

Also, at that point their personalities within the context of the group had already been established and was being used as a selling point long before Fuller got hold of them.

He basically just took on a winning forumla and ran with it.

Anybody remember his first big project after the SG's fired him? 21st Century Girls? They were quite cringe aswell, even for the 90s! Fuller was just as lucky to have signed the Spice Girls as they were to be signed to him.

Does J-pop just mean theres lots of members? If we had a British girl group really singing J/K-Pop I'd actually pay attention

there are some three member groups, so that's not exclusive

although the more the merrier
