The amazing @gjkooijman unearthed these two videos, which take us all the way back to 2001 for a look back on Starmaker.
This Dutch Big Brother and Popstars hybrid gave us some of my favourite Dutch popstars and it’s really odd to see them as they were back when it all started. We get to see the finalists in the Starmaker house (which was really just the old Big Brother house with a different logo) hearing ‘Damn (I Think I Love You)’ for the very first time. In the second video we watch them record it in what seems to be the secret dungeon from ‘V For Vendetta’.
‘Damn (I Think I Love You)’ is one of the best reality show singles ever and most definitely the best one to feature all finalists. Check out the end result here!
