They were a group of people... who played pop music... automatically that makes them a pop group. What does it matter if they played instruments or not?
Anyway, I'm with Jer. Who cares about the gender of the group members? One would think that at this day and age in society such things wouldn't matter. It's so boring when people get stuck with the same formulas in their mind for what's wrong and right and can't allow for different posibilities. Just open your mind, people... Plus, we'll only really know if the group works when they actually come out with something.
I didn't say the line-up wouldn't work or anything against it. I just said you can't compare them to The Corrs.
With "pop group" I meant that kind of group where their members sing and dance like MOST pop groups, which is not the same as a "band" if you get what I mean. The Corrs have never been a traditional pop group. They're a band, they play instruments and have a lead vocalist while the 2 other women do heavy backing vocals and the guy barely can be heard. That's why you can't use The Corrs to compare and say that a pop band made of 3 girls and 1 boy will work. It's not the same, not matter how you look at it.
That would be like saying Take That and Bon Jovi are both pop groups that can be compared.
