German pop trio Monrose were one of the myriad acts launched to fame via the television amateur showcase Popstars. Created in the mold of record-setting girl group No Angels, by some distance the most successful exponent of the Popstars model, Monrose's origins lie in the series' fifth season, heralded by advertisements proclaiming "Neue Engel braucht das Land" ("The country needs new angels"). Produced by the duo of Jiant and Snowflakers, "Shame" topped the pop charts in Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, and Switzerland, becoming the fastest-selling single of 2006. Temptation followed by year's end, going platinum in its first week of release. ~ Jason Ankeny
