Nadine Coyle, first found fame in 2001 when, while still at Thornhill College, Derry, she entered the Irish version of the talent show Popstars. As one of the winners of the show, Coyle was selected to become a member of the group Six. Shortly after the group was formed, the band mates moved into a house together and all were interviewed on camera.

Coyle gave a string of information about herself but then stopped suddenly and whispered "What date of birth did I give...?". She initially maintained that she had simply made a mistake when stating her birthday but later broke down off camera and admitted that she had lied about her age and was in fact only 15 years old.

As the minimum age stipulated by the producers was 18, she had to be dropped from the group and returned to her secondary grammar school, Thornhill College. Six's first single, "Whole Lot Of Loving", became the fastest-selling single in Irish history. Their second Irish single was "Let Me Be The One" and was released after receiving a successful reaction when they supported Westlife. Following an unsuccessful attempt to widen their popularity in the UK, Six's official website disappeared and the group vanished from the pop scene.

In 2002 Coyle returned to enter the UK talent show Popstars: The Rivals at the invitation of manager, Louis Walsh. As she got through the first few rounds, her very first fan site opened. She polled the third-highest number of votes in the final and was chosen to join the group Girls Aloud. During the series, she had been a hot favourite to make the group. When asked to name a highlight from the show, presenter Davina Mccall simply answered "Nadine".

With Girls Aloud she has scored 17 top 10 singles (three of which have been #1s) and five platinum albums (including a #1), selling in excess of 4.6 million copies in the UK alone. Nadine is seen as one of the best voices of the group, along with Nicola Roberts[citation needed]. Nadine showed off her vocal talent whilst on tour with her group mates in May and June 2005, and again during a UK arena tour in May and June of 2006.

Louis Walsh has promised to make Nadine a solo star if and when Girls Aloud go their separate ways. However, she has constantly denied reports she will leave the girl group to become a solo artist. On the 18 April 2007, Nadine Coyle made it onto the front page of the Daily Star that featured new pictures of her from Girls Aloud's new Sunsilk advert that aired in June. In 2008, Nadine Coyle made a cameo appearance in the re-make of the St. Trinians movie, playing the part of a schoolgirl with the other members of Girls Aloud, filmed in Spring 2007.

Nadine has also co-written a few songs whilst in the group, including:

  • 100 Different Ways" (What Will the Neighbours Say?)
  • Why Do It (B-side to I Think We're Alone Now)
  • Sexy! No, No, No...
