Monrose is an all-female pop–R&B trio from Germany consisting of Mandy Capristo, Senna Guemmour, and Bahar Kızıl. Formed in 2006 on the fifth installment of the German version of the international television talent show Popstars, they released their debut album Temptation in December 2006.
Under the motto "Neue Engel braucht das Land" ("The country needs new angels") Popstars returned with a fifth installment in August 2006, this time searching for the legal successors of the show's first and most successful formation, the No Angels. More than 5,100 hopeful female singers attended open television auditions in Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Hanover, Munich and Dortmund, judged by choreographer and dancer Detlef "D!" Soost, music producer Dieter Falk and singer Nina Hagen. Over the course of several recalls and re-recalls the three judges reduced the contestants to a group of 20 who immediately travelled to Ischgl, Tyrol to get trained in singing, dancing, and fitness. In the end eleven girls remained who again moved into a mansion in Pullach, Munich to start working on their performance and publicity skills. While Soost, Falk, and Hagen continued eliminating one or two girls each week, the six remaining finalists went on with the recordings of alternative versions of their debut album Temptation and the video shoot for their first single "Shame".
