David Foster supervised the American version of the show and his sister Jaymes was one of the judges. Foster’s 143 Records also released Eden’s Crush  record in May 2001. Aptly entitled “Popstars,” the album presented a varied selection of well-dosed pop/dance songs mostly meant for young audiences and radio playing, not far from the sound of successful groups like “The Spice Girls.”
