History

2006: Formation

Under the motto "Neue Engel braucht das Land" ("The country needs new angels") Popstars returned with a fifth installment in August 2006, this time searching for the legal successors of the show's first and most successful formation, the No Angels. More than 5,100 hopeful female singers attended open television auditions in Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Hanover, Munich and Dortmund, judged by choreographer and dancer Detlef "D!" Soost, music producer Dieter Falk and singer Nina Hagen. Over the course of several recalls and re-recalls the three judges reduced the contestants to a group of 20 who immediately travelled to Ischgl, Tyrol to get trained in singing, dancing, and fitness. In the end eleven girls remained who again moved into a mansion in Pullach, Munich to start working on their performance and publicity skills. While Soost, Falk, and Hagen continued eliminating one or two girls each week, the six remaining finalists went on with the recordings of alternative versions of their debut album Temptation and the video shoot for their first single "Shame."
On the season's finale on Thursday, November 23, 2006, three of the six were chosen to make the band: Mandy Capristo, Senna Guemmour, and Bahar Kızıl beat out Arjeta Zuta, Katarzyna Zinkiewicz and Romina Reinhardt - and eventually formed the trio Monrose.

2006-2007: Temptation

On December 1, 2006, Monrose released their debut single "Shame". The Jiant & Snowflakers-produced pop song became an instant success and reached number one in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, making it one of the most successful debuts of the year. Outselling 3/4 of the German Top 100's singles sales combined, the song also emerged as the fastest selling CD single of 2006 and the biggest-downloaded song since the introduction of the legal digital download charts in Germany in 2004. Critics rated Temptation generally positively, with laut.de's Stefan Johannesburg praising Monrose and their team for wisely finding a very "British and catchy" musical middle ground between the Pussycat Dolls and Destiny's Child.
In January 2007, it was announced that the trio had qualified for the German national pre-selection of the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, organized and broadcasted by the ARD. falling against swing singer Roger Cicero and his song "Frauen regier'n die Welt." Meanwhile "Even Heaven Cries" peaked at number 6 on the German Singles Chart and within the top 20 in Austria and Switzerland.
Following this, the band announced their Venus Temptation Tour with twenty dates, beginning at the Hanover Capitol on April 29, 2007. Sponsored by Global Gillette, the concert tour was accompanied by intense media coverage since it failed to produce any sold-out show, and thus four concerts had to be cancelled due to low ticket sales.

2007: Strictly Physical

While touring Monrose began preparing work on their second studio album, Strictly Physical which was preceded by "Hot Summer," the band's second number-one hit in Austria, Germany and Switzerland and one of the biggest-selling songs of the year on German online music stores. Obtaining international success in Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and the Benelux states, the single confirmed the trio's intentions to expand their career on foreign language markets and as a result Strictly Physical received a simultaneous release in most of Continental Europe on September 21, 2007. Featuring main production by Danish producers Remee and Thomas Troelsen, the album earned mixed reviews, with most professional critics calling the longplayer a "more mature and individual" but "well-snitched" output in comparison with band's debut album. With "Strictly Physical" and the Billymann-penned ballad "What You Don't Know" the album spawned another two top 10 entries.
On September 1, Monrose contested in the Sopot Song Festival 2007 in Poland, representing Germany with their debut single "Shame." Rivaled by other international artists such as Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Thierry Amiel, The Cloud Room and September, the trio eventually lost to Polish rock band Feel and their song "A gdy już jest ciemno."

2008: I Am

On March 20, 2008, Monrose' non-album song "We Love," a promotional song for German-based network ProSieben, was released as a digital download single. The trio's third studio album, entitled I Am, was released on September 26, 2008 in German-speaking Europe, involving production by Ryan Tedder, Jiant, and Snowflakers among others.
Also in 2008, the band contributed vocals to a cover version of singer Craig David's 2000 number-one hit "Walking Away." Although David and the band shot the video in London, England in July 2008, the single release of the re-recording was eventually scrapped.
