Pop music made a massive comeback in the late '90s when the charts became filled with teenage sensations like Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, who all released albums that sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S. Pop became an international phenomenon when European groups like the Spice Girls and S Club found massive success all over the world. Countless attractive pop stars and groups like Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Brandy, Mandy Moore, Ricky Martin, Aaron Carter, 98 Degrees and O-Town flooded the charts and appealed to audiences beyond the obvious teenage fans. Coveting the rapid ascension to fame enjoyed by these stars, anonymous singers competed for stardom or humiliation in the public eye on immensely successful television programs like "American Idol" in the US and "Pop Idol" in the UK.
