When I first heard Don't Cha I thought it was an obnoxious song.
I saw maybe 30 seconds of The Dolls performing on the Nick Awards and was offended once again thinking this song was too mature for a Nickelodeon audience. But for some reason, I was interested, and so I listened to the 30 second clips here on Amazon and was impressed. I bought the album and haven't been disappointed so far.
Even some fans say The Pussycat Dolls shouldn't be taken too seriously and that no one is looking for them to win a Grammy for anything. But why not? Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl was nominated for Record of the Year. If Hollaback Girl can be nominated, nobody should give up hope. Now, I love Hollaback Girl, but that's like saying you love an Adam Sandler movie: it hasn't anything to do with award shows.
So don't shoot down the girls' chances. It seems like anybody has a shot these days in the age where we see record sales as a sign of greatness and where it's okay to copy, sample, and recycle without adding anything new of your own.
