British dance-pop group Steps came to being in 1997 after being handpicked from thousands of others who responded to an ad in The Stage newspaper. Following extensive auditioning, Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer, and Ian "H" Watkins made the final cut. The band's first single "5,6,7,8" came in the wake of the group's formation and became its first hit in the UK as well as internationally. In 1998, Steps' second single, a cover of Bananarama's "Last Thing on My Mind," hit the shelves, peaking at number six on UK pop charts. The group continued its success streak with its subsequent release "One for Sorrow" which reached number two and began a chain of consecutive top-five hits in the UK. This success helped it build a solid fan base and set the tone for its debut album Step One, which entered the charts at number two. The group has since released numerous other albums including Buzz, Tears on the Dancefloor and What the Future Holds. Its top songs are "Tragedy," "Scared of the Dark," "Something in Your Eyes" and "Story of a Heart," among others.
