Amelle and Mutya Keisha Siobhan have all been members of the Sugababes. There are some negotiations going on about the name so stay tuned.
I have met a few artists in the countdown. I've actually met Gwenno twice! Once in 2007 when she toured America with The Pipettes. And I met her again in 2011 when she toured America with The Pipettes. The second time is when I met Ani, who is now the lead singer of The Lovely Wars. I met Märta from Le Kid earlier this year for lunch in San Francisco. And while I didn't technically met Jody Watley, she did recognize me from Twitter when I saw her perform in Oakland earlier this year. I saw the Pet Shop Boys in concert this year and I waved to them on stage, but I'm sure they didn't see me. Ha!
And lastly ... several artists acknowledged Poptastic Confessions either on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram when the countdown was going on. They were ... Jody Watley, Le Kid, The Lovely Wars, Army Of Lovers, Gwenno, Amelle Berrabah, Annie, and Molly Smitten-Downes. To those artists, I say Thank you for the music. And thank you for helping support my blog!
Well, that's all for now ...
If you missed the countdown, start here at #1 and work your way down.
