() - July 3, 2006 - 12:00am
Surely you’ve heard the hit song, Don’t Cha, and its famous lines, Don’t cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me? Yes, trust the Pussycat Dolls to stir things up wherever they go. And the experience will be in-the-flesh soon enough when Storm Watches London together with NoCurfew watch stores bring you the red-hot song-and-dance girl group for a one-night-only concert in Manila this month.

The Pussycat Dolls have risen from underground cool to mainstream hot and have incarnated from the hottest performing group in the famous Sunset Strip in Hollywood into the recording artists/performers that they are now. They have come a long way since first forming the group in the garage-turned-dance studio of Christina Applegate. After years of headlining Thursday nights at the famous Viper Room, owned by Johnny Depp, the Dolls started having famous friends volunteer to dance and sing with them, giving the Pussycat Dolls the added notoriety and true celebrity pedigree. These friends included Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, Carmen Electra, Britanny Murphy, Charlize Theron, Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson and Applegate.

The Pussycat Dolls have undergone many line-up changes over the years, but the six ladies that comprise the group today are the strongest line-up yet. A red-hot ensemble of raw sexuality and exciting talent, the Dolls are composed of Jessica Sutta, one-time captain of the Miami Heat dance troupe; Carmit Bachar, the sultry "La Vida Loca" girl on Ricky Martin’s world tour; Ashley Roberts and Kimberly Wyatt, two of Hollywood’s most talented young dancers; Melody Thornton, the talented singer discovered in an open audition; and Nicole Scherzinger, a Hawaii-born half-Filipino, half-Russian beauty who scored a Top 10 album and single with her former girl group, Eden’s Crush.

This will be the first time the group will be here to perform for its Filipino fans. Nicole is really psyched with her upcoming visit, saying she is thrilled to come over and "be around people who look like me."

R&B singer Sway Penala, whose San Francisco-based group, Drop n Harmony, has been dubbed the "Filipino Boyz II Men." Sway was recently seen as a semi-finalist in this year’s American Idol. Also appearing in the concert is Mikey Bustos, a finalist in the Canadian Idol 2003 edition. Mikey recorded two songs for the Canadian Idol compilation, and both songs were runaway hits with the Asian community there, and gave Mikey the distinction of being the first Fil-Canadian singer in Canadian music history to be featured in a Gold-selling Canadian record.

The Pussycat Dolls concert will also feature Honore, songwriter/singer/producer, originally from Altadena, California and ethnic descent (Creole and Filipino). Honore is a successful solo artist and songwriter in the R&B genre.

With the group’s Don’t Cha, Stick with U and Beep, the Pussycat Doll’s Manila concert on July 28 at the Araneta Coliseum promises to be the hottest ticket in town. The Pussycat Dolls Live in Manila presented by Storm Watches London with NoCurfew watch stores.
