Danity Kane is an American R&B girl group signed to Bad Boy Records. Formed on the third installment of the Making the Band series, the quintet consists of Shannon Bex, Aundrea Fimbres, Aubrey O'Day, Dawn Richard, and Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgette.

In 2005, rapper and mogul "Sean "Diddy" Combs" returned with Making the Band 3, this time searching for the next female supergroup. With the help of choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson, vocal coach Doc Holiday and talent manager Johnny Wright, he set out on a multi city search, subsequently finding 20 young singers. While seven girls remained, Diddy grew more and more unhappy with the level of talent throughout the season, and eventually decided not to form a band. He did however give a reprieve to three contestants who he felt deserved another chance (including Aubrey O'Day and Aundrea Fimbres) who all continued on to the following season.

Afterwards Diddy once again sent his team across the country to audition new girls for the group. Finally eighteen girls were chosen and moved into a loft in New York City. After weeks of dance and singing lessons, promotional appearances, and a performance in front of 20,000 at a Backstreet Boys concert at the Nissan Pavilions, eleven girls remained. The finalists were sent home for three months, told to polish up, and return for the final stretch in December 2005.

On the second season's finale on Thursday, December 8, 2005, five of the eleven were chosen: Aundrea Fimbres, Aubrey O'Day, Dawn Angelique Richard, Shannon Bex, and Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgette. The final five members of the group in place, Making the Band 3 tracked the development and struggles of the new band - from then on known as Danity Kane (a name, taken from a female anime superhero conceived by Dawn).

During early February to May 2007 Danity Kane performed as an opening act, along with The Pussycat Dolls, on Christina Aguilera's Back To Basics Tour. In the meantime the band has intensified work on their as-yet-untitled second album, which was initially scheduled for a fall 2007 release. Furthermore the quintet is under discussion about a fourth season of the Making the Band series on MTV.

In the summer of 2007, speculation by fans and the media circled the internet and entertainment news outlets concerning the possibility of Danity Kane splitting up. The rumors were fueled by quotes taken out of context (most notably when Aubrey O'Day was questioned by TMZ about her relationship to the successful pop girl group the Pussycat Dolls and their television show Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll) and by work the group members have done outside of Danity Kane since the release of their debut album. Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgette's association with another girl group, The Girl's Club, was specifically cited as adding credibility to break-up rumors. Additionally, reports of solo careers and of new groups forming from various combinations of members of the group were rampant.
