Deco Features: The Saturdays
For most of us, Saturdays are a day to kick back, relax and leave the work week behind. Saturdays are a whole different deal across the pond. The Saturdays are the biggest female pop group in England. They've set their sights on conquering America Shireen Sandoval explains.
Now that we've all been properly introduced, here's a short history of the sats.
MOLLIE: "We got together five years ago and we're quite established back home in the UK, and we've always said right we want world domination, so we thought where best to come next but America."
The ladies start their attempt at domination with "Chasing the Saturdays," their new reality show.
They claim it's gonna be unlike any of the other seven billion reality shows on TV.
UNA: "Ours is different because there's reality shows out there getting talent out there for the first time, but we're already established we're a pop group and it's showing us trying to break it here but also following our personal lives and there isn't any other TV reality show out there that has that."
These spicy pussycats became a group after each of them passed record company auditions.
Singing well together was job one getting along was a bonus.
ROCHELLE: "It just so happened that we all jelled and got on really well but no it was really about the singing first off."
The pre-fab five are heavily involved in writing the songs they sing they're careful not to turn the creative process into a free-for-all.
ROCHELLE: "We tend to like break it off into two's and three's 'cause when there's all five of us there there's too many ideas and it kinda gets too crazy."
American audiences might just go crazy for the Saturdays. No matter how wild things get for them in the states, they're hoping to remain in the hearts of their countrymen.
VANESSA: "We always said we wanted to do...you know we wanted to be established over here but i think it was really important for us to make sure people at home didn't forget about us."
