This Sunday 5 new members will be added to The Supergroup, and to let you know who they are, I've posted this little post. The guys who look good for me are Emma, Grace and Callum, but I can't know how they sing or if they even do so, and I can't know about the others also. Emma's and Callum's biographies look really great, she has recorded some demos and he has won some competitions. Let's wait till tomorrow to comment on them.

All biographies taken from the DSB site.

Emma Williamson

Emma is a waitress in the Menier Chocolate Factory in London while pursuing her dream to be a performer.
Emma’s brother Adam is currently working on an oil rig in Greenland so is not yet aware of her Supergroup status. Emma really enjoys sewing and making clothes and although this is a hobby at the moment, she hopes one day to branch out into the fashion industry. Emma’s aunty is a performer and musical theatre teacher in Edinburgh and she put Emma onto the path to showbiz from a very young age. At 14, Emma realised this was the career for her but at 18 she was knocked back by some drama schools in London. Ever determined, Emma completed a performing arts foundation course in London instead and the following year was accepted to Mountview. Since graduating she has appeared in many commercials including GO Compare and Freeview HD, along with singing on a demo CD for a new musical.

Callum Friend

Callum grew up with his mum and sister and has been singing and dancing since he was 3 years old. Callum’s dad wasn’t around when he was a child but in 2009, he connected with his dad who was living in America via Facebook. Callum made the emotional trip to America to be reunited with his dad where he found out his family have a long history of singing. The family he met in America are all musical and Callum finally found out where he gets his talent from. Callum got through to the national finals of Open Mic UK in 2009 and is hoping he can build on this success in 2010. In his spare time he runs his own youth dance classes and does some part time radio presenting.

Ashley Sollars

Performing runs in the family as Ashley’s brother Warren is currently appearing in the West End in the ensemble of Mamma Mia. Warren has been a real inspiration to Ashley and puses him to pursue his dream. Ashley’s brother won the television competition ‘Musicality’ and the prize was a scholarship to the internationally renowned Laine Theatre Arts which provided the training for him to become the West End star performer he is today. Ashley is determined to do just as well and is looking for the right platform to expose his skills as a performer. Ashley is the lead singer in his band 'The Speakers' and has previously performed at the Royal Albert Hall as well as lots of private functions. As well as singing in the band, Ashley also works behind the bar in his local pub. Ashley has been dating his partner Lisa for over a year and she’s also a budding performer who is starting at Italia Conti in September. They have known each other since they were 10 years old when Ashley started dance lessons at Lisa’s mum’s dance school.

Grace Chapman

Grace is a checkout girl at the CO-OP and has been dating her boyfriend Luke for 9 months since meeting at Sixth Form College. Last August Luke had a bad accident playing football and crushed his skull which left him with amnesia. Luke has had to literally learn words from scratch and even re-acquaint himself with best friends. Luke says Grace has played a huge part in his recovery and says she is very supportive and understanding. She often helps him where when forgets words. Luke says Grace has been a tower of strength and a real inspiration to him while he tries to get his life back together. As one of her school’s leading musical talents, she was once picked to serve tea to Sir Ian McKellen who came to visit her school.

Steven Bor

Steven works as a singing waiter at the Naked Turtle in Sheen, South West London. He performs nightly in between serving tables and is accompanied by a pianist or plays the guitar. Performing runs in the family for Steven; his mum Kim and dad Steve are producers of a variety show in France. His Hungarian dad used to be a juggler and English mum was a dancer which is how they met when they worked together in London’s West End. Steven graduated from Arts Educational School in Chiswick last year and has since performed as Brad in Hairspray in the West End along with being the understudy for Corny Collins. Another huge passion of Steven’s is his songwriting, penning his first song at 12. He began playing the guitar at 8, and currently is performing his music through gigging; he describes his style as a fusion of soul, pop and rock.
