Pussycat Dolls get new line-up
Nicole Scherzinger has been joined by four new members in a revamped line-up of The Pussycat Dolls
The Pussycat Dolls have unveiled their new line-up.
Every member of the previous incarnation of the girl group - Kimberly Wyatt, Jessica Sutta, Ashley Roberts and Melody Thornton - has been replaced, except for lead singer Nicole Scherzinger.
The band now consists of Nicole, Kherington Payne, Rino Nakasone-Razalan, Vanessa Curry and Jamie Lee Ruiz.
The new line-up performed their first concert last Friday (21.05.10) at a private party in Los Angeles.
Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin unveiled a photo of the revamped band on her twitter page, along with a post which read: "Last Night was perfection! NicoleScherzy was so incredible, sang her heart out! & DOLLS, you KILLED IT! Congrats!!!! (sic)
Choreographer Robin previously revealed she was going to completely overhaul the Pussycat Dolls.
She said: "The brand is about female empowerment. Inside every woman is a Pussycat Doll waiting to get out. There are millions of women out there who want to know what it feels like. I want to bring in new faces."
Some of the new members have tasted fame before.
Kherington starred in the remake of 'Fame' and appeared in an episode of 'Glee', Rino was part of the dance troupe the Harajuku Girls who toured with Gwen Stefani, while Jamie Lee was a contestant on Robin's TV show 'The Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious', which was looking for members for a new pop band called Girlicious.
The Pussycat Dolls are now preparing to head into the studio to record an album.
