Thoughts On Jade Ewen Allegedly Replacing Amelle In Sugababes (Children, Cover Your Ears)

I didn't pay an iota of attention to Eurovision this year. Let's face it, when warbling stripper Jade Ewen is the best the U.K. is able to cough up, well...

Now the deafening rumor is that Jade is replacing Amelle Berrabah, after the latter supposedly became the latest Sugababes member to walk out in a glitter swirl of drama. Argh.

I don't know much else about this Jade Ewen broad, other than the fact that I was forced to review two of her songs in recent months on the Pop Trash Addicts Pop Panel. Here was the glowing praise for each:
"My Man" — "Generic garbage. Couldn't even make it till the chorus before moving on. 0/5"

"It's My Time"
"Stick to stripping, baby. 0.5/5"
Come to your senses, 'babes, and let Mutya Buena back in!

    D'luv- if the news is true I'd love to know what you think the record label will do to handle promo for the new album? Here are my thoughts:

    1.Dump the pressed cds onto stores and just re-record future single releases with alleged ropey replacement stripper?

    2.Delay album and re-record with said stripper?

    3.Beg Amelle or Mutya to come back while Keisha is sent to anger management counseling?

    4.Decide Sugababes brand is tired and start developing new act with Siobhan/Amelle/Mutya called Sourbabes?

    I personally think Sugababes should call it a day. Amelle 4EVAH!

    That's absolutely ridiculous- they'll never do it, because Sugababes wouldn't be colour coordinated if they did. It doesn't really matter who replaces who in that group, they're all pretty interchangeable- but I think that to continue in the same vein they really need only one black singer, one blonde singer, and one long-faced stick-thin brunette. Jade Ewen isn't long-faced stick-thin brunette enough for the part.

    Insane news...from their own website:
