The Pussycat Dolls is now seven with the newly added member Asia Nitollano who won the contest.
Asia Nitollano follows the footstep of her father in music industry. The 18 years old just won Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll after beating fellow contenders Melissa Reyes and Chelsea Korka. She is now the seventh member of the troupe.
Although Asia has been hammered for her vocal quality and received the lowest vote of who should win the contest, the judges agreed that she is the best performer. In the final she was required to deliver her solo performance that she admitted that as 'scary'. Yet, she was confident throughout and let her daughter and family became her backup strength.
Upon crowned the winner, the talented dancer took the stage performing with The Pussycat Dolls for the first time. "It felt great. You know that's what I came there to do. I couldn't wait to get on the stage with those girls and I'm happy I had the opportunity just to be next to these talented, beautiful women. And it was an honor," she said in an interview.
