— Fans of Pussycat Dolls Present: Search for the Next Doll have been wondering since the show ended why Asia Nitollano, the winner of the competition, hasn't been appearing with the Pussycat Dolls at any of their shows.
Well, the Pussycat Dolls performed at the CW's upfronts in New York City last week – and Asia performed with them. Asia and the other girls (minus Ashley Roberts, for some reason) sang the Pussycat Dolls' hit single Don't Cha.
The upfronts, which are a presentation to the media and advertisers by the networks about the shows they're going to have next season, are an important time for the networks, as it allows the advertisers to decide which shows to buy commercial time in. As you probably already know, Pussycat Dolls Present is currently auditioning girls for a second season, which not be another "Search for the Next doll," but instead will have the goal of finding members of a new group "inspired by" the Pussycat Dolls. Promotion for the second season of Pussycat Dolls Present was an important part of the CW's upfront presentation.
Remember when the three finalists on Pussycat Dolls Present: Search for the Next Doll perfomed "Lady Marmalade" in the season finale? Rumor has it that the first single the Dolls are going to release with Asia in the group will be a cover of the same song. Presumably it will appear on their upcoming album, which may or may not be called "Double the Trouble."
Asia hasn't yet been added to the Pussycat Dolls' official website, but we expect to see that done soon – unless various other (totally unconfirmed) rumors are true about her not really joining the group. Would they really have gone through the entire process of the Pussycat Dolls Present show for nothing? What do you think? Comment below to share your opinions as usual.
