Recently formed girl super-group Girl Radical have premiered the first of five webisodes featuring *NSYNC star JC Chasez, who is the founder and brains behind the project. The series of webisodes touch on how the group got started, the audition process, tracking of the first single, and exclusive interview clips with JC himself. The girls range from a variety of different ethnic and social backgrounds and each endured a rigorous audition process to land the gig.
“This whole thing started when Jimmy (Harry) and I, my production partner and writing partner, we were talking to an artist we were working with at the time. She was a Japanese artist, and she was telling us about the latest sensations in Japan and it was these supergroups. As much as a girl group has been done, it’s never been done like this. It was so fresh, so dynamic, so huge. It’s the first time I got excited about a pop project in 10 years.”

JC Chasez has announced his latest project, Girl Radical, an eleven-girl super-group based in Los Angeles. The former *NSYNC star’s collective has debuted their debut cover single and video of ‘Just a Girl’ by No Doubt. Chasez partnered producer/songwriter Jimmy Harry to develop the group’s loud-and-proud brand of pop music, in addition to being a musical “dad” of sorts to the many members of the new project.
“Jimmy [Harry] and I have been friends for many years, and we’re always writing and submitting things for different artists. We always talked about starting a project from scratch, but we didn’t know what it was going to be,” Chasez explained to Billboard. “One day we ended up working with this Japanese artist and she showed us the this thing called AKB48. Basically it’s a Japanese group that started with 48 members and has fluctuated anywhere from 48 to 60. It was like this army on stage performing, and I’ve always been attracted to the spectacle.”
‘Just a Girl’ will be available for purchase on iTunes on September 19th.

BritneySpears.com visited ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ for Britney Spears week, interviewing JC Chasez, Beat Freakz and former Britney dancers Teresa Espinosa and Rino, and the Ringmasters.
“I think that Britney has had a huge influence on dance culture. What makes her so great, she’s just a great performer. She knows how to, I would say, toil with the audience’s emotions. She knows how to press your buttons in good ways and other ways that make you think. Other ways that, you know, she just understands how to really tap into those emotions.”
JC added, “She’s really had a large influence on a lot of people one time or another through her videos, and a lot of music of hers is upbeat and it’s set up to dance to.”
‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ airs Thursdays at 10 PM ET/PT on MTV. Watch video below.

Working with him is amazing. He has such a strong feeling about who he is as an artist. I did background vocals on the song I did with him.”
