    Hi :flower: I have always liked the UK bands better as they seem to be more daring maybe?? Here in the US bands seem to either have a really so called sexy look or they do this teeny bop look but its not often I see US girl bands having this type of style...I like UK bands becuase they seem more into looking cool than just being sexy and having their chest out.

    I personally like UK bands better myself, as well. :) I love the looks that the Sugababes have in their videos - it's a little less "sexy" and a little more funky...plus, they can actually sing. :D

    I hope they cross over here successfully! I was in the car just a couple weeks ago, and "Hole in the Head" came on, and I was thrilled. :)

    I like Mis-teeq as well, but I'm less familiar with them, although I love their song "scandalous". :)

    That so awesome I felt the same way I have always liked them...And I heard them in the car as well and I was like awesome.

    But im so crazy its like now that they are crossing over if everybody here starts to like them then I won't like them so much.

    But your so right I couldn't think of a word for some of the uk bands styles but they have more of a funky style.

    Do you like Atomic Kitten as well?

    Atomic Kitten's style is simple more of Gap than Versace but they are also very cool! I also agree Uk GROUPS ARE QUITE STYLED UP COMPARED TO aMERICAN GROUPS!

    I'm sorry, a lot of my friends agree with this, Sugababes music is really good but sometimes, with the exception of Heidi, they can look trashy...I love their album though. :flower: And Mystique...when you compare them to a bnd like Destiny's Child... there is no comparison. :wacko:

    Sorry I disagree with you about these groups being trendsetters!
    Most of the stuff the Sugababes wear is tacky and very revealing, just like any other girl group...take a look at their videos if you want proof :innocent: :doh:
    As for Misteeq, they look like rather ordinary young women who like dressing up in designer stuff

    I don't like them or their music.. their 15 minutes of fame will soon be up and we'll find ourselves asking 'misteeq who?'

    misteeq have been around for ages in the uk already
    as with the sugababes... n both of them started out with different line ups...
    the misteeq style... is just uk people tryin to b american with designer wear....lol
    but i guess they look totally differnt to destinys child... as they dont wear costumes... they wear clothes

    sugababes on the other hand... started out just plain n simple... n have progressed... to a more sluttier style definately... especially with the injection of heidi..... but they r funky sluts.... which we like very much

    I'm not particularly big on Atomic Kitten, but I do like Liberty X for some odd reason. :)

    I don't mind Mis-teeq's style - they're not half as funky, but they're very distinctly...British...in their music style, much like the Sugababes, which I like. :)

    I don't know - for some reason, there's some minute difference I can hear between Brit music and American music, and I like Brit music better, to some extent. Haha. Maybe I'm hearing things. LOL.

    I like the Misteeq girls, they do love to dress up and can sing - so a bonus. They also are highly influenced by the Americans, as are the majority of both boy and girl bands in the UK. :heart:

    Never heard of any of them. I'm in America. Are they pop groups?
