Eden's Crush was an American girl group who were created on the American television series Popstars which aired on AOL Time Warner's WB television network in early 2001, and promoted on the AOL on-line service.[1] Nicole Scherzinger was one of the group members and went on to join the group The Pussycat Dolls.

Career[edit]

Hundreds of girls competed to become pop stars in the early 2000s on the TV series Popstars, produced by David Foster. The group was narrowed down to five finalists, Ivette Sosa, Maile Misajon, Ana Maria Lombo, Nicole Scherzinger, and Rosanna Tavarez, over several prime time episodes. Warner Bros./Sire Records signed the group to a recording contract before the band was named or had finalized its membership, due to the hours of network television exposure the group would receive.[2]

The group's debut single, "Get Over Yourself" topped the Canadian Singles Chart and peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100. Their second single "Love This Way" had some radio play. Their album Popstars was certified gold, and peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The group featured a multicultural membership of Dominican, Puerto Rican, Russian, Filipino, Hawaiian, Irish, German, and Colombian descent. The group also guest starred as themselves on the television show Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.

In 2001 they played as a support act on some dates for *NSYNC's Pop Odyssey Tour and Jessica Simpson's DreamChaser Tour.[3]

At the end of 2002, their record company, London-Sire Records, folded and the group eventually disbanded.
