Girls Aloud were an English-Irish pop girl group, which was created through the ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. The group comprised singers Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh. The group achieved a string of twenty consecutive top ten singles in the United Kingdom, including four number ones. They also achieved seven certified albums, of which two reached number one. They have been nominated for five Brit Awards, winning the 2009 Best Single for "The Promise".

Hello and welcome to the second UKMIX Girls Aloud artist survivor. The first survivor, also hosted by myself, back in 2007 saw The Show emerge victorious. Which song will claim the title this time around?

For the first stage of the survivor I will present each studio album by Girls Aloud and ask you to save as many tracks as you like, then any remaining non-album songs/B-sides will have their own round. After this, the tracks making it through will enter group battles before we compile the final list.

This will indeed be amazing! Their debut is actually their only album I didn't purchase! I'll join in next round and listen to whichever songs survive this one.
