I think they are.

Their new album Salute is out today and its fantastic. Not one bad song on it.! I hardly ever buy albums usually just singles but this really is one of the best albums of 2013.

Shame it's out the same week as Lada Gaga, The Killers, Keane and not forgetting Eminem who was #1 yesterday as it really deserves to be a number 1 album.

Yep imo they are, but each to their own, we've produced great ones in the past too. Salute is my album of the year though.

I couldn't name more than 2 girlbands at the moment, but if they sell enough to be No 1 then they deserve it, if they don't sell enough then they don't deserve it

Not many out there or any good at the moment, as female solo singers are the trend at the moment, so probably.

They're the only girlband to making a huge impression on the UK music market right now, so yeah.

I don't particularly like their music so I can't comment but I do think the Sugababes used to be. they have a mixture of good singers & sexy women can I say that about Little Mix, to be honest no but I can see why the americans like them

The answer is probably yes. The second album is generally better than the first plus they have taken a risk with the first single. And if they break the US, then they will be the best since The Spice Girls. Plus they all sing and write most of their own stuff. Surprising for an XF group.

The Saturdays are my favourite girlband at the moment, but I don't mind Little Mix either. I liked their first album. Not sure if I'm gonna buy the new album or not. I'll listen to it first.

They may be the most succesful right now, but I prefer The Saturdays. I find their music more catchy and the girls come across as more likeable, in my opinion.

I would say so now, I don't like Move I think it's a dreadful song but compared to the other girl groups around they are

I don't think any of the current girl groups match up to Sugababes (in terms of vocals) or Girls Aloud (in terms of their songs) if I'm honest

I really want to like Little Mix but their music just isn't to my taste. I personally prefer The Saturdays, Stooshe and MKS.

Objectively speaking though, I would agree they're the best UK girl group at the moment, because they're talented, they're successful, they have their own sound and their new album has very good reviews.

It's hard to even say, the only real girlbands around atm are Little Mix, The Saturdays and MKS. The latter is barely in the running, and The Saturdays and Little Mix are at very different points in their career to even compare. I wouldn't even say they're in competition with one another. Just for the larger back catalogue which has been some great pop for the most part, I'd pick The Saturdays.

Girls Aloud and Sugababes are gone now

No way, Spice Girls will always be the biggest UK girlband.

As of now. Yes they most definitely are. They have filled my Girls Aloud/Sugababes void.
