We’ve watched them sweat, sing and shimmy their way to the top and on August 22nd Danity Kane, the Diddy-founded group that made it all the way to the end of Making the Band: Season 3, will at long last drop their debut album. The final incarnation (Aubrey, Dawn, Aundrea, D.Woods and Shannon) hit the dance studio to show off their booty shaking and give us the real deal on what life is like behind the cameras.ELLEgirl: Ok, what’s the story behind the name “Danity Kane”?
Dawn: In high school I didn’t really fit in all the time. I drew this girl, Danity Kane, who made me feel like I didn’t have to hide or be insecure. In the studio I was just drawing her again and the girls really liked what she represents.
EG: Some of you took a big risk in entering this competition, even entering without the full support of your parents. Were you scared or were you willing to do whatever it took?
D.Woods: I think that even if none of us were supported, we would’ve all fought, ’cause we’re such fiery women who have never given up our dreams.
EG: Now that you’re here, are you working hard? What’s your schedule been like this week?
Aubrey: We’ve been in the studio every night until like 5 am. Diddy doesn’t let us leave until we make a hit.
EG: Does having him around so much make you nervous?
Dawn: Yeah,it used to be intimidating during the competition…
Aundrea: We’ve seen him in flip-flops and sweats now.
EG: Working with a big power player like Diddy must have its perks, though. (more…)

Danity Kane, Danity Kane [Yup, that’s Diddy’s all-girl group from yet another interminable cycle of Making the Band. Today, as the title says, we are putting things in perpective.
Danity Kane and Yung Joc stopped by TRL Studios today to do a live performance of “Show Stopper”. Danity Kane’s debut album hits tomorrow.
I’ve heard their album and its surprisely decent. Hopefully they won’t end up as another Bad Boy ancient story, most groups signed to the label don’t last too long lol.
Watch the performance under the cut…

Danity Kane – 200K
Wow that’s a lot for 1 day. R&B girl group Danity Kane, stars of the most recent installment of Diddy’s MTV series, Making the Band, in the race to finish first on next Tuesday’s HITS Top 50 album tally. And don’t count out Christina Aguilera, either. Those are the findings based on a survey of first-day sales from our team of crack-smoking retailers around the country… Um, we mean crack retail reporters.
