Forged out of the 2005 season of MTV's reality show Making the Band 3, Danity Kane is a pop group with an origin story that could have only happened in the mid-aughts, when reality television was at its peak. The original five members, Aubrey O'Day, Shannon Bex, Dawn Richard, Aundrea Fimbres and D. Woods were hand selected by the show's producer, Sean P. Diddy Combs, who auditioned over ten thousand women in search for the next superstar girl group. Diddy's strict practice regimen went according to plan, and Danity Kane's self-titled debut album was met with widespread commercial success in 2006, particularly for the hit single "Show Stopper". Despite releasing another chart-topping album, the group was torn apart by internal tension between Diddy and members O'Day and Woods. Danity Kane officially broke up by 2009, but announced a reunion in 2013 with four out of five of its original members: Bex, Richard, Fimbres and O'Day.
