(Nov. 2004-May 2005)

Nu Pagadi was a German pop band, formed in December 2004 on the fourth season of international reality television program Popstars. Originally a quartet, from May 2005 a trio, the group describes their own musical style as "glam rock"; in fact the attribute "pop with rockmusic elements" fits better[citation needed]. In September 2005, only ten months after the band's formation, the members announced their official split due to musical differences.

In May 2005, the band changed from being a quartet to being a trio when Doreen Steinert left.[1]

The band's name refers to a Russian (Soviet) cartoon-series of the 1970s and 1980s called "Nu, pogodi!" which means "Just you wait!"
