The heirs to the Pussycat Dolls' singing and dancing throne are on their way.
Fifteen finalists have been chosen to compete on "Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious," to land one of three coveted spots in the new musical group Girlicious, Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin's latest brainchild. Girlicious will have a new look, new sound and most importantly, a new attitude.
In the 10-episode series, Mark McGrath will return as host, while Antin, Geffen Records Chairman Ron Fair and rap artist Lil' Kim will reprise their roles as judges. The Girlicious winners will immediately record an album, film a music video, go on tour and earn a record contract with Geffen.
The pop star wannabes are listed below. "Girlicious" premieres on Monday, Feb. 18 ET on The CW.
