Multi-platinum, award-winning international superstar Fergie, who joined The Black Eyed Peas in 2002, released her solo debut, "The Dutchess," in 2006. "The Dutchess," which spent an astounding 94 weeks on the Billboard 200 albums chart, sold over 6 million copies worldwide and achieved triple-platinum status in the United States. It was propelled by the hit singles, "London Bridge," Fergalicious" (#1), "Glamorous" (#1), "Big Girls Don't Cry" (#1), "Clumsy (#2)" and "Finally." Fergie is the first artist since Christina Aguilera (in 2000) to score three #1s from one album. She has won three Grammy Awards and won the 2007 American Music Award for Best Female Artist (Pop/Rock).

The Black Eyed Peas set a record in August by having the longest successive stay at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 25 consecutive weeks at #1. "I Gotta Feeling" held the top spot for 13 weeks and "Boom Boom Pow" was tops for 12 weeks. The singles appear on "THE E.N.D.," the group's fifth release and their first to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The group recently celebrated two wins at the 2009 "American Music Awards" for Favorite Band (Duo or Group) in both the Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B categories.

Multi-talented Selena Gomez recently released her debut album "Kiss and Tell" with her band, The Scene. The album debuted at #9 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold 66,000 copies in the first week.

Justin Bieber released his debut EP, "My World," on November 19 with the first single, "One Time," seeing success on the Billboard Hot 100. Bieber was discovered after posting videos on Youtube and now, at the age of 15, has already wrapped a tour with Taylor Swift.

Keri Hilson started writing songs at the age of 12 and performed in talent shows throughout Atlanta as a teenager. She worked as a vocal arranger and songwriter before recording her own album, "In a Perfect World." The album features productions work by Timbaland and Polow Da Don, plus guest appearances by Justin Timberlake, Keyshia Cole and Lil' Wayne. The album topped Billboard's R&B chart and reached #4 on the Top 200.

California native Colbie Caillat recently released her new album, "Breakthrough," featuring hit single "Fallin' for You." In 2007 Colbie's nearly double platinum album "CoCo" debuted at No. 5 on Billboard's Top 200 albums chart and remained in the top 20 of the chart more than half a year after the CD's release. On October 21, Caillat returned with "CoCo - Deluxe Edition," featuring the original12 tracks plus nine additional recordings.
