Antin recruited Chrystina Sayers from Girlicious, Lauren Bennett from Paradiso Girls and Paula Van Oppen from So You Think You Can Dance. Vanessa Curry, a former Laker Girl, and Erica Jenkins, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, round out the singing quintet.

The women replace original members Scherzinger, Melody Thornton, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Kimberly Wyatt. Carmit Bachar left the group in 2008.

The new Pussycat Dolls will make their world debut in a Go Daddy commercial airing during Super Bowl XLVI Sunday. "It's breathtakingly beautiful. It's a fun, real-campy kind of sexy," Antin tells MTV. "It's a fresh, young energy. I want to appeal to our young fans."

"The dancing is spectacular. Everyone is amazing," Antin said. "It's the exact right recipe for the new Pussycat Dolls. We just did the Go Daddy commercial, Super Bowl spot -- really excited about it. It's sexy and all that. It's a quick look for people to see the girls together for the first time."
