Bardot were an Australian girl group which formed in 1999 on the Australian reality television series Popstars. Aired in early 2000, the program was a fresh concept to audiences, attracting high ratings and much attention in the media. This exposure resulted in the instant success of their debut single “Poison” and debut album Bardot, which entered both the Australian and New Zealand charts at number 1 and charted highly in parts of Asia. In 2001, Bardot released their second album Play It Like That, featuring the Top 5 ARIA singles “ASAP” and “I Need Somebody”, with greater creative control and this resulted in many strong reviews. Despite making the decision to part ways in 2002, Bardot remained the most successful act of all four Australian Popstars seasons. In addition their clothing label remains a commercial and retail success. However band members have stated that they no longer receive royalties since the band dissolved. The clothing label was a joint venture with the Just Jeans group run by Solomon Lew. Despite Bardot’s success, their music is not available on digital music platforms with Screentime (the company which produced the Popstars series and owned the rights to the music) stating that “Bardot’s albums would not be released ‘as the economics for the label simply don’t stack up'”
