S.H.E - Sexy Girl's Group

Sexy Girl's Group S.H.E
History. On August 8, 2000, HIM International Records held a 'Universal 2000 Talent and Beauty Girl Contest' in search for new artists to be signed under their label. The contest had about 1000 contestants and after many tiring rounds of competing, seven contestants were left for the 'Cruel Stage' round. The three members of S.H.E. were formed from here. Following the competition, the record company gave all seven contestants an audition. At the beginning, only one would be given a contract, but because of their incredible performance, all three of them were signed together under HIM International records. Together, they formed S.H.E with Selina Ren, Hebe Tien and Ella Chen.
Selina Ren was born inshe Taipei, Taiwan on October 31, 1981, was the actual winner of this contest. Her younger sister really wanted to join but was too young. Instead, Selina joined the contest in her place. She caught the judges' attention in the first round by singing Coco Lee's 'Before I Fall In Love' and entered the final round with no trouble with 'The Closest Stranger'. Due to her nervousness during the final round, Selina was called twice, and when she was announced the winner, she was doubtful because there were other contestants who did not get called on.
Hebe Tien was born on March 30, 1983 in Hsinchu, Taiwan, was recommended to join by the workers of the television show 'Cruel Stage'. During the first round, her voice started breaking while singing 'Return Home'. Hebe decided to sing a song with a lower key in the final round. But because she was unfamiliar with the song, she forgot her lyrics in the finals, messing up her performance. However, the manager appreciated her straight personality.
When Ella Chen whose was born on June 18, 1981 in Pingtung, Taiwan and her younger brother went to Taipei from Pingtung for a holiday, Ella's elder sister registered her into the competition. She almost gave up before the first round because of the long queue of contestants, but was convinced by her sister to stay, and made her way through the final round. She had a unique deep voice, which caught the company's attention and made her stand out from the others.

After three of them were signed to HIM, the company did not make them a group because their different personalities and looks did not fit with what the audience was used to. But because Taiwan had never had an all-girl group with different personalities and looks, they thought that it would be new and fresh, so they boldly put the three girls together. After the three girls heard this, they did not really accept the decision because it was not what they were thinking. All three of them came from different places. They never telephoned each other and only said 'hi' when they met. Because most of the songs in the album did not require them to sing together, their relationship was not very good, making the company worry. When the company then let them stay in the same room in the same dormitory, the girls were worried that they would argue. But the company hoped that by this they could learn to cooperate with each other. To prevent them from arguing, the record company set a few rules of life for the girls living in the dormitory. After a week, the record company's worries were gone because the three girls were closer to each other and could be mistaken as triplets! Just like that, the three girls lived in a small dormitory together for a few months and passed on flus and boredom to each other.
