Wednesday night is the season finale of Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious
. Fifteen girls started in this competition to form a girl group trio, and judges Robin Antin
, Ron Fair and Lil Kim have worked their way down to the final five.
The final five girls are Tiffanie
, the sassy girl with the strong personality and all-around talent; Nichole
, the quiet blonde who's performed consistently throughout the show but who has also been told by the judges she needs to break out even more; Natalie
, who was rated the most popular in an early challenge to see who young girl fans would like the best, but who also has struggled with some elements of performing; Charlye
, who has been a strong performer onstage for much of the competition, but whose attitude has become more of an issue lately; and Chrystina
, who the judges agree has some kind of magnetic allure but whose performance and attitude ups and downs have dogged her throughout the competition.
So what could happen tomorrow on Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious
I've made no secret about who I think the final three could be and that hasn't changed. My money is still on Tiffanie, Nichole and Natalie as the final group. Part of it is due to the way they perform, but my calling it this way is in large part due to how the show has been edited so far. While Tiffanie and Natalie have had moments of drama, they've been balanced out, and while Nichole has gotten some negative critiques from the judges, the story has seemed to be building to their eventual win.
Of course, there is always the possibility the editors have a twist in store, but for a show like this – which also hopes to create a product we might buy, namely the girl group Girlicious – and so it seems unlikely that they would risk saddling the group with any girl whose recent edit wasn't positive.
So according to my logic, Chrystina and Charlye won't be on that final roster…but could there be a different twist in play? Some viewers have wondered if the group will ultimately wind up with four members. Or could one of the girls be given a solo deal, a la Donnie J. Klang on Making the Band? Tune in to tomorrow's finale of Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious to find out.
