10 musicians who got their start on reality TV

Published by Business Insider on Wed, 23 Jan 2019

Sometimes budding musicians can push their music into the spotlight using their reality TV fame.In other cases, musicians head to reality TV competition shows to try to form a band or rise to fame.Kelly Osbourne, Usher, and Paris Hilton all have music careers and reality TV roots.Over the years, competition shows have become a popular way for singers and performers to go from ordinary, everyday people to household stars. Even though shows like "Star Search" and "Showtime at the Apollo" dominated the late 80s and 90s, the market has since expanded and created many opportunities for singers to follow their dreams. On the other hand, reality television as a whole has created avenues for its stars to step into the spotlight as singerseven if it's initially unexpected. And while it may work out fantastically for some at the start of their career, it may take a little longer to get the traction needed to become a certified star. Here are 10 musicians who have roots in reality TV.Kelly Osbourne debuted her album while on a show about her family.Before she was known as the fashion icon she is today, Kelly Osbourne and her family were stars of the MTV show "The Osbournes." During the show's debut season in 2002, the youngest Osbourne daughter released her punk-rock debut album titled "Shut Up." The album was led by the Madonna cover single "Papa Don't Preach" and it was generally met with mild reviews. In 2005, Osbourne gave music another spin and released her sophomore album "Sleeping in the Nothing," which was a complete change in sound from her previous release.Miguel auditioned for a musical group in 2005 on a BET TV show.Grammy-winning artist Miguel may be a big name in R&B today, but back in 2005, he was just starting his musical career.Miguel appeared in BET's first run at making a music group with the show "Blowin' Up! Fatty Koo" and the debut album "House of Fatty Koo" that spawned from it. What you may not have known is Miguel actually auditioned for this group in 2005. Miguel showed up late to his audition and he was criticized by the group's members for his voice and overconfidence. Although he didn't make the cut then, just two years later, the singer signed a deal with the now-defunct Jive Records. And in 2010, he released his debut album "All I Want Is You."Miguel has released five studio albums to date. Danity Kane was created on an MTV series.Before famed artist Diddy introduced the world to Revolt TV, he was rocking with another station: MTV. Taking over the "Making the Band" franchize after Lou Pearlman and his created group O-Town moved on to other projects, Diddy went on to assemble the now-defunct group Da Band. In 2005, Diddy came back with the intention to find the next female supergroup for "Making the Band 3." It was in season two of this installment that the group Danity Kane was born.Originally consisting of members Dawn Richard, Aubrey O'Day, Shannon Bex, Aundrea Fimbres, and Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgett, the group released their chart-topping self-titled debut album in 2006. Their sophomore album, "Welcome to the Dollhouse," was released in 2008 and also topped the charts and made the group become the first female group in Billboard history to debut their first two albums at the top spot.Since their disbandment in 2009, the group has gotten back together numerous times, released at a third album, "DK3"which only features Richard, O'Day, and Bex as vocalists.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
