Danity Kane and The Pussycat Dolls filled the void for girl groups in the mid-to-late aughts, especially after many of the greats from the '90s dissolved. PCD went from a burlesque troupe to pop girl group when they released their debut smash "Don't Cha" in 2005. DK formed between two seasons of "Making the Band 3" in 2005, releasing a chart-topping debut album in 2006. Which girl group from this era is your favorite? 🎤

Danity Kane is arguably the most successful group from any of the four seasons of "Making the Band." The ladies of DK—Shannon Bex, Aundrea Fimbres, Aubrey O'Day, Dawn Richard and Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgett—were put through the gauntlet in order to make Diddy's all-girl band in 2005. But they made it and slayed it too! The group released its signature hits "Show Stopper" in 2006 and "Damaged" in 2008. Their first two studio albums debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.

Diddy fired D. Woods and Aubrey in latter 2008 on "Making the Band 4." The group reunited as a quartet in 2013, as D. Woods didn't return. Aundrea left the group again to raise a family, but DK released "DK3" as a trio in 2014. After Dawn and Aubrey got into a brawl, the group disbanded yet again. Dawn successfully continued her solo career, while Aubrey and Shannon formed Dumblonde.

Dawn and Aubrey recently made up, but fans can only hope for a reunion with all five original members.

The Pussycat Dolls became a pop girl group in 2005 with their mega-smash "Don't Cha," peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Singers Nicole Scherzinger and Melody Thornton joined dancers Carmit Bachar, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Kimberly Wyatt to form the pop version of the famous burlesque group. The girl group blew up between 2005 and 2006, giving DK some serious competition. The girl groups even toured together. But PCD achieved a string of mega pop hits between only two albums—including "Buttons," "Stickwitu," "Beep," "Wait a Minute," "When I Grow Up" and "I Hate This Part."

But the group was also subject to controversy. Some critics said they weren't a real group, as Nicole was the only singer, with Melody sometimes providing Christina Aguilera-like backup vocals. Despite never receiving critical acclaim for her vocals, members of the group accused Nicole of bad diva-like behavior. She was ultimately blamed for breaking up the group in 2010 after Carmit left prior to the release of the group's sophomore album, "Doll Domination," in 2008. Still, PCD left behind a legacy of sexy and sultry jams that inspired other girl groups, like Girlicious.
