3LW Plan Auditions To Replace Naturi Naughton

Tryouts to be held in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles.

3LW's Adrienne Bailon and Kiely Williams have announced plans to hold auditions for a singer to replace Naturi Naughton, who bolted earlier this year.

The search will begin November 30 in New York, with additional tryouts planned in Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles in the coming weeks. Candidates must be between the ages of 15 and 20 and have to be willing to travel the world by plane and relocate to New York.

Though there is no word on how long the auditions will go on, 3LW are scheduled to tour in late December, meaning any girl wanting to be down with them had better quickly get to know "No More (Baby I'ma Do Right)," "I Do (Wanna Get Close To You)," "Neva Get Enuf," "Ain't No Maybe" and "More Than Friends (That's Right)," the songs to be used at tryouts.

Bailon and Williams are now in Canada filming their debut acting roles in the Disney Channel's "Cheetah Girls" (see "3LW Holiday Album Due; Members Land Film Roles").

3LW's second album, A Girl Can Mack, was released in October (see "3LW Out To Show A Girl Can Mack"). Naughton, whose vocals appear on the LP, left the group two months earlier (see "3LW Become 2LW: Naturi Says She's Out Of Group").
