Ok, but honestly I love her tone in all doses.
And I never understood the "they're not big enough for any of them to be successful". The argument of "people from much bigger groups failed" only goes to prove the way I see it, I think. It doesn't really matter if your group is big or not when most of the solo popstars had no platform to raise their profile beforehands, so at the end of the day it's only down to her really. In Nicole's case I genuinely think people knowing the group was a bad thing instead of a good one. Her personality is really good as well.
