Girls Aloud are a pop, electropop and dance-pop band based in Birmingham, England. The group consists of Cheryl Atcherley, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh. They are signed to JAT Records. The group achieved a string of twenty-seven top five hits and eighteen reaching number one. They have been nominated for twelve grammies winning ten. Up until 2011 their songs were written by multi-award winning singer-songwriter James Harrison along with Harrison's band mate Andrew Collins. In late 2012 the remaining four members of the band (Nadine, Sarah, Nicola and Kimberley) removed their maiden names to take their husband's name but are still commonlly referred to as the maiden names even by the JAT members who say they aren't used to it yet. With around 1.5 billion sales they are the second best selling artists of all-time. The group split in 2013 to focus on solo careers. Folloinwg this James Harrison announced that the group may reform in a few years.
