Road to Fame

Strong, sexy and confident, the Pussycat Dolls have been around since 1995, making great music for a decade. Created by Robin Antin in the Los Angeles garage of her friend, actress Christina Applegate, the group originally comprised of Antin and her friends experimenting with their choreography, music and fashion. They performed at Johnny Deppís prestigious club Viper Room in Los Angeles, and became the Thursday night headlining act at the club.

The year 2000 was the highlight of the Pussycat Dollsí career when rock superstar Gwen Stefani and pop queen Christina Aguilera saw them perform. Both did separate guest performances with the group, lending their vocal talents to a spectacular music and dance show.

In 2002, after more than six years at the Viper Room, the Pussycat Dolls moved to the glamorous Roxy club in Los Angeles, performing at sold out shows for almost two months. The line-up of guest performers grew, including Carmen Electra, Charlize Theron, the Black Eyed Peasí Fergie, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria, Britney Spears, Pamela Anderson, Brittany Murphy and Paris Hilton.

The Pussycat Dolls had made a name for themselves as performers and it was only a matter of time before the record companies came knocking on their door. Antin met up with record labels and signed the Pussycat Dolls with Interscope Geffen A&M Records in 2002. The groupís songs have been featured on numerous movie soundtracks, including the hits Shark Tale and Shall We Dance. They were also seen in Charlieís Angels: Full Throttle, Be Cool and the hit Pink song Trouble. The Pussycat Dolls have made television appearances on shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, NBC New Yearís Eve and The Late Show with David Letterman.

For their debut album PCD, the Pussycat Dolls have collaborated with the best in the music industry, including Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas, Timbaland and Busta Rhymes. The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Charts, with Donít Cha peaking at #2 on the Billboard Top 100 Singles Charts. The song has topped charts around the world, including the UK, Australia, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Ireland and Canada.
