The S Club Juniors released their very first single 10 years ago today. It went to #2, missing out narrowly to the Sugababes with "Freak Like Me". It went on to spend 11 weeks in the Top 40 and sold over 250,000 copies.

Funny to think Frankie & Rochelle were known in the world of pop music before Girls Aloud even existed.

S Club Juniors were shit though not a patch on S Club 7

The Juniors > 7. I always felt more connected to the Juniors. Probably because I'm their age, haha.

That performance is rather good!
Moments I love:

Rochelle basically dwarfs the rest of the band due to her height!
Frankie was deemed one of the lead singers, and now she is deemed one of the weakest...
Aaron was obviously the best dancer by a mile.
The fact they sang mostly live, which must have been quite a scary thing!

They were only allowed on TOTP if they sang live that time, as the guy who ran it HATED them.

It's weird how much Frankie sang back then, considering how completely shit she is now.

I loved SCJ/8, many happy memories! I was only 14 when they came out, they appealed to me. The whole 'S Club' thing did really.

I always remember being really jealous of this guy when he won the chance to do a song with them:

I guess Frankie sang a lot because she was seen as the most attractive

Didn't that happen to Lisa Scott-Lee too? She was booked to perform Lately, and when she turned up at the studios she was forced to sing live, haha.

OMG! I didn't know they ever perform 'live' before. Frankie sound so much better then. LOL!
Is that ever true that the guy who ran TOTP hated them and forced them to sing 'live'?
Coz I remember all the performances from the "Sundown" album were all lip-synced on TOTP.

I never liked them when they first started out coz I have never liked kids band. But I fell in love with "New Direction" and from there on, I have been a fan of their music. Hannah was always my favourite and I have always like Frankie, a real stunner even at that age. And I thought Daisy sounded the best out of the lot, coz I really like her voice. I never like Stacy and I thought she is the diva?

I really enjoy their music and always wished they didn't disband. And it's a waste that "Sail On Through" and "Turn the Lighs On" were never singles and Hannah never sung solo verses in all their songs at all.

The rumour was that the gay who ran it really hated the whole concept of them, and would only let them appear if they did it live. Because they did, he couldn't really then ban them from the show, but let them on as guests.
