UK Popstars 2, Weeks 14-16: The End, by Phil Lewin: Once the bands were chosen, it was time for them to record their singles, tape their videos, and promote their songs. The boys have the talent, the girls have the looks - which would have the number 1 Christmas single?
UK Popstars 2, Week 13: No Talent Aloud, by Phil Lewin: It’s taken eight long weeks for the ten boys and ten girls that made the final stages of Popstars – The Rivals to be reduced down to the final five apiece, but at last the end is in sight. One more girl would go this week and then we will know the line-up of both the boy and girl bands. But first the voters have their say…
UK Popstars 2, Week 12: Lend Me Your Ears and I’ll Sing You a Song, by Phil Lewin: It’s taken a long, long time but at last we have reached the final set of eliminations which will decide the line-ups of the rival boy and girl bands. This week, one more boy had to be removed from the final six. Who will it be?
UK Popstars 2, Week 11: West Life Girls, by Phil Lewin: It’s time once again for the girl group on the British Popstars – The Rivals to lose another member to the audience vote. Will the viewers bring another surprise as they did last week, or will it be a pretty standard vote for the least talented?
UK Popstars 2, Week 10: Hello, Goodbye, by Phil Lewin: The boys are up for elimination again, and it was predicted that Chris would make his final stage appearance. But will the criticism of him by our judges (shown at right) have similar effect to Simon's criticism on American Idol and end up keeping him around instead? Or will the public continue to agree with the judges every step of the way?
UK Popstars 2, Week 9: Dogfight, by Phil Lewin: The British public continues to chip away at the contestants as this week the girl band faced two cuts. But really, isn't it all about a fight between band manager/judges Pete and Louis? It sure seems to be.
UK Popstars 2, Weeks 6-8: The Crying (and Lying) Game, by Phil Lewin: As we catch up on three weeks of the second British Popstars, we have several eliminations, a walk-out, and a confession that might not have really been a confession.
UK Popstars 2, Week 5: In and Out (And In Again), by Phil Lewin: After sitting through thousands of auditions, the three Popstars – The Rivals judges had finally chosen the ten boys and ten girls that were to go into the two Popstars houses as the next step in creating the two rival bands. This meant that ten people on the final shortlist of thirty had to be told that their talents were no longer required.
UK Popstars 2, Week 4: Bye Bye Baby, by Phil Lewin: America is not the only place where musical reality shows have age-related "scandals." The UK has one in the second version of Popstars -- and the difference is only 10 days. But meanwhile, the group of 50 is cut down to 30, and then will be cut all the way down to the semi-final 10. Throw in a bit of nepotism, and you've got yourself a show.
UK Popstars 2, Week 3: Too Much Too Young, by Phil Lewin: The initial auditions are over and the judges need to cull down the 100 remaining to 30. How will the pregnant woman, the vision-impaired guy, the very young looking “16-year-old,” and others do? Plus, what’s this about a guy named Justin who is cut and brought back?
UK Popstars 2, Week 2: Oh Baby, Baby, by Phil Lewin: It's the second week of auditions in the second edition of UK's Popstars. We have an interesting bunch, including a girl who was booted from the Irish finals of the show for being too young, one who is in the middle of pregnancy, and the return of the Cheeky Girls!
UK Popstars 2, Week 1: Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!, by Phil Lewin: It's the first week of the new Popstars over in the UK. But before the two new bands even have a chance to get started being the "Rivals" boasted in the show's title, the judges start fighting one another and forget just who the show is supposed to be about…
UK Popstars 2: This Time, It’s War, by Phil Lewin: It was all so simple in the first UK season of Popstars. Thousands of pop wannabes performed before a panel of judges from the music biz and were whittled down to a final five. But now that's not good enough. The second series will feature more competition and will pit two groups against each other as rivals. Read on for all the details.
