Nadine Coyle biography (bio):
Nadine Coyle, also known as Nadz or Diney, first found fame in 2001 when, while still at Thornhill College, Derry, she entered the Irish version of the talent show Popstars. As one of the winners of the show, Coyle was selected to become a member of the band Six. Shortly after the band was formed, the bandmates moved into a house together and all were interviewed on camera. Coyle gave a string of information about herself, but then stopped suddenly and whispered "What date of birth did I give...?". She initially maintained that she had simply made a mistake when stating her birthday, but later broke down off camera and admitted that she had lied about her age, and was in fact only 16 years old.
As the minimum age stipulated by the producers was 18, she had to be dropped from the band and returned to her secondary grammar school in Derry called Thornhill. Six's first single "Whole Lot Of Loving" became the fastest-selling single in Irish history. Their second Irish single was "Let Me Be The One", which was released after receiving a successful reaction when they supported Westlife. But, after a failed attempt to break the UK, Six's official site disappeared and the group soon vanished from the pop scene.
In 2002 Coyle returned to enter the UK talent show Popstars: The Rivals. As she pulled through the first few rounds her very first fansite opened, and soon she was on the way to the final night. She polled the third-highest number of votes in the final, and was chosen to join the band Girls Aloud, much to the delight of friend and new bandmate Kimberley Walsh. During the series she had been a hot favourite to make the band, especially after a stunning rendition of "Fields of Gold", which many believe was the performance of the series. She also sang "Show Me Heaven", "When I Fall In Love" and "I Wanna Dance With Somebody", regularly receiving some of the highest vote tallies. When asked to name a highlight from the show, presenter Davina McCall simply answered "Nadine".
With Girls Aloud she has scored fifteen top 10 singles (three of which have been #1s) and four platinum albums (including a #1) Nadine has sold in excess of 4.5 million copies in the UK alone with Girls Aloud. Nadine is often seen as "the voice" of the band. Nadine showed off her vocal talent whilst on tour with her bandmates in May and June 2005, and again during a UK arena tour in May and June 2006.
Before hitting the big time, Nadine recorded a demo CD which was distributed to Louis Walsh (now co-manager of Girls Aloud) and The Late Late Show. This included "Fields Of Gold", as well as "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", "Love Is" and "Summertime". The demo CD is very rare as only a few copies were made (Nadine gave most to her friends and family), but one found its way onto eBay and earned a high price.
Louis Walsh has promised to make Nadine a solo star if and when Girls Aloud go their separate ways. However, she has constantly denied reports she will leave the girl group to become a solo artist. On the 18 April 2007 Nadine Coyle made it onto the front page of the Daily Star which featured new pictures of her from her new Sunsilk advert that is airing in June. In 2008, Nadine Coyle will make a cameo appearance in the re-make of the St. Trinians movie, playing the part of a schoolgirl with Girls Aloud, which was filmed in Spring 2007.
Nadine has also co-written a number of songs whilst in the group, including:
* "100 Different Ways" (What Will the Neighbours Say?)
* "Why Do It" (B-side to I Think We're Alone Now)
* "Watch Me Go" (Chemistry)
