They would've been my top 2. Even if they aged horribly.
There were PLENTY of good girl-group debuts last time (that were admittedly floptastic & only I really liked Ddddd).
Announcing Fire as the winner of my rate was probably my lowest point in this forum.
You just tanked Zoidberg in the Futurama rate.
Me trying to stay as unbiased as possible (for now)
Also Supa Dupa Diva is a bop and you all should be ashamed
I also think there's a newbie boom happening that girl groups haven't caught onto yet, probably due to some combination of boy groups seeming like a more solid investment to companies and the expansion of Western interest in boy groups. Hopefully 2018 is to girl groups what 2017 was to boy groups.
The most successful 'current generation' girl groups are a group who debuted over 3 years ago (RV), TWICE who are divisive due to their success, and Blackpink, who are like part-time models. I mean, how disproportionate the number of boy groups debuted in 2017 is to the girls is super obvious. (There's several 10s that aren't included in this rate simply due to debuting after it got started, which is the kind of swiftness companies are debuting boy groups with.)
TWICE dominating in a stagnant girl group scene + nostalgia probably worked in older groups' favor. Plus, I think if MILK, SES, Baby Vox, etc. had been included in the girl group rate, they probably would have tanked too.
Oh. Yeah. This might be fun. I'll see if I can do this.
I might actually do this! The thing is, my tolerance for sub-par bordering on shit girl groups is MUCH higher than my tolerance for even average boy groups.
Let me embrace my rate villain role.
I wasn't here for the girl group rate so I'm going to stay blissfully ignorant and assume that CLC won with Pepe because they deserved that win. Thank you all for supporting them!
@BEST FICTION please do something about this.
I feel the same way about Pepe...but I'm so sorry for our loss :((
I may just set aside a prize for villainest of you villains
BUT YAY MORE PEOPLE JOINING! THANK YOU SO MUCH ♡
I take it back, 2ne1 and SNSD fighting!
OH MY GOD.
btw I like Pepe and agree that it deserved to get farther
