        Tori Alamaze is an American singer best known as a backing vocalist for the hip hop duo OutKast.

        Hailing from Detroit, Alamaze worked as a makeup artist for about 10 years, including work for musicians Faith Evans, Erykah Badu, TLC, Xscape, Monica, Outkast, and Busta Rhymes. She got her break when somebody offered her a recording contract. She worked on her debut album, and appeared in opening acts for the Black Eyed Peas.

        Her first single, “Don’t Cha”, was written and produced by Cee-Lo Green. It wasn’t very successful, only peaking at #58 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. Alamaze claimed the label never shot a video for her single, nor did she receive proper marketing. According to industry chatter, Tori’s version of “Don’t Cha” was intended as the label’s ‘next big thing’, but then Universal Records decided the single wasn’t the right move. Tori was subsequently dropped from the label, and the track was re-recorded, by The Pussycat Dolls including a rap from Busta Rhymes. The new version climbed to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The multicultural female posse imitates Tori’s vocal inflections and adlibs to a tee, while adding Busta Rhymes to the mix and keeping Cee-Lo on production. To many fans Tori was done very wrong and some say the song ‘Dont Cha’ was destroyed by The Pussycat Dolls

        Her album remains unreleased.

        From torialamaze.com:

        Pussycat or Copycat?

        Pussycat Dolls remake a minor hit into a major one — The barely dressed vamp act covered Tori Alamaze’s ‘’Don’t Cha'’ and took it to the big time by Michael Endelman

        Two years ago, the Pussycat Dolls were a risqué L.A. burlesque troupe whose eye-popping live shows drew a celeb-heavy cult following and guest dancers like Carmen Electra and Christina Applegate. This week, they’re radio faves with a slinky top 10 hit called ‘’Don’t Cha.'’ That a barely dressed vamp act became a charting pop group with a major-label album (due Sept. 13) is strange enough. What’s more curious is that the very same tune was a minor radio hit earlier this year. The original was sung by Atlanta-based makeup artist, stylist, and former OutKast backup singer Tori Alamaze. Unfortunately for Alamaze, her version only reached No. 53 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and Universal dropped the singer before her full-length CD came out. The label then asked the song’s producer and writer, Atlanta rapper/singer Cee-Lo, to rerecord ‘’Don’t Cha'’ with the Pussycat Dolls, who it was trying to reinvent as a slick girl group. ‘’Initially, I was skeptical, I didn’t know too much about them,'’ says Cee-Lo. ‘’But when I found out that [Universal-owned]Interscope Records was involved, that was an alliance I didn’t hesitate to make.'’ The two records are strikingly similar (save for a guest rap from Busta Rhymes on the Dolls’). Admits the group’s lead singer Nicole Scherzinger: ‘’I had [Alamaze’s] version as a guide. But ours is just a bit fresher.'’ Not surprisingly, Alamaze is irked: ‘’I like to call them the Copycat Dolls. It’s an attempt to sound like what I did, but it just sounds real watered

                      It'd be nice to have more than just Nicole singing, I mean it was basically Nicole with a few backing singers/dancers, so i can't see her solo album being much different from PCD but I'm hoping the second album won't be a let down after how good PCD has been (even if PCD is turning into more of a greatest hits album than a debut album!)

                                Apparently its been confirmed by some executive from CW which ran the show. Possibly Audrey O'Day from Danity Kane is replacing her.

                                  Some guy from CW said that she left because she wanted to pursue a solo career.

                                    Can't wait.

                                    There should be a song with Christina on it.

                                      Lol! QUITE why she auditioned to be in PCD is beyond me then.

                                      Like she needs replacing! Cant they stick with the 6 member line up? Surely they've recorded most of the album already anyway?

                                        They recorded most of ''PCD'' before some of the members joined. I think Jessica joined after the album was 90% done.

                                          Well she didnt record anything for it, did she, but they all have recorded parts this time so why must they get a 7th member?

                                            Aubrey has already said that she is not joining the Pussycat Dolls.

                                            Asia isnt really leaving, because she never really joined the group. She won the competition, but for her to be apart of the group, she would of had to record and promote with PCD. She's now opted to go for a solo career, instead of carrying Nicole's bags. Can't say i blame her.

                                            I doubt that Asia will have any kind of career, and it certainly will not extend out of the US.

                                              There's tracks with Christina Aguilera & Lil Kim apparantly.


                                              And if Asia has actually left then Melissa R or Chelsea deserve to be members.

                                                Aubrey never denied it, but never confirmed it: I hope she doesn't leave, though.
