Formation

In 2001 the dream catcher reality-show Popstars was launched in Portugal by the television station SIC with the aim of creating a five-piece girl band.

More than one thousand and two hundred girls attended auditions in the cities of Porto, Algarve and Lisbon, hoping for a place in the group.

While running the auditions in Algarve, Liliana Almeida wasn't accept to the casting for not being yet eighteen; she would eventually go to Lisbon for the last day of auditions and make it to the second round (comically, that day was the day of her eighteenth birthday).

As the contestants were eliminated the line-up for the newest Portuguese girl group was revealed. By April 4 the five finalists, Andrea Soares, Ana Rita Reis, Fátima Sousa, Kátia Moreira, and Liliana Almeida were known as the formal winners of the contest. Nonstop was born.
