Following in the wake of the multi-platinum girl group Pussycat Dolls came Girlicious, a pop quartet whose music was also rooted in sexually charged slick R&B/pop. The group consists of Nichole Cordova, Tiffanie Anderson, Chrystina Sayers, and Natalie Mejia, and was formed in 2008 by Robin Antin, creator and founder of the Pussycat Dolls. In order to capitalize on the success that her first pop group had achieved across the globe, Antin produced a reality television program to search for the next pop sensation. After thousands auditioned with hopes and dreams of being part of the next "it" group, Antin selected 15 participants who would compete in a program called Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious. The contestants performed rigorous dance routines and delivered group and solo vocal performances as the judges on the show eliminated the competitors, until there were only four left.
