Gimmel was a Finnish girl group.

In the Spring of 2002, a Popstars competition was held in Finland to find members to form a pop band. 454 young women participated in the singing tests. 25 girls made it to the final selection round. Members of the first Popstars band in Finland were Jenni Vartiainen, Susanna Korvala, Ushma Karnani, and Jonna Pirinen. After a few weeks arguments between the girls increased, and Jonna decided to leave the band. Ushma, Susanna, and Jenni continued. They decided to adopt the name Gimmel.

The word Gimmel means a renaissance wedding ring that contains three parts. Once these parts joined together a groom, a bride, and a witness. They also symbolised an endless and firm relationship. Gimmel is the third letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and it also means the number three. Other than these meanings, "gimmel" also is a slang term for slapping man's face with one's penis [source: UrbanDictionary.com (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Gimmel)]

The first single they published was Etsit muijaa seuraavaa, which was released on October 25, 2002. It sold gold in a few days and platinum in 1½ weeks. In its first week on the charts, the single rose to first in the Finnish single's chart and held that position for four weeks. Gimmel's first album Lentoon came out November 22, 2002 and just after it was published, it shot up to the number one spot in the official Finnish album chart and remained there for three weeks. In 2002, almost 85 000 copies of the album were sold, and it was the most sold album of the year.

Gimmel's second single Roviolla was released on January 27, 2003, and it got the third position in its first week in the charts. This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi. Gimmel won in three categories in Emma-gaala 2003: best pop/rock-newcomers, the début album of the year, and the most sold album of the year.

In summer 2003, they released their second album called Kaksi kertaa enemmän, and in the end of the year a music video Harmaata lunta.

The band broke up October 16th 2004.

The band broke up October 16th 2004. To prevent people from assuming that the "monkey" mentioned in the album's title might be a reference to former member Cee-Lo, the current members have stated that it is actually more or less a reference to the industry (Goodie Mob was dropped from Arista after lackluster sales of their commercial effort World Party) and truly believe that this album will pick up where Still Standing left off. In summer 2003, they released their second album called Kaksi kertaa enemmän, and in the end of the year a music video Harmaata lunta. Despite the group's woes as performers and as people, their new album One Monkey Don't Stop No Show was released in June, without Cee-Lo. Gimmel won in three categories in Emma-gaala 2003: best pop/rock-newcomers, the début album of the year, and the most sold album of the year. His debut single, "Steppin' Out" featured southern R&B newcomer, Sleepy Brown, on the chorus and received some radio and video airplay. This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi. Other than Cee-Lo's commercial achievements, Big Gipp is the only Goodie Mobb member who achieved some notoriety as a soloist.

Gimmel's second single Roviolla was released on January 27, 2003, and it got the third position in its first week in the charts. The solo array was rounded out by the vet, Big Gipp's 2003 Mutant Mind Frame. In 2002, almost 85 000 copies of the album were sold, and it was the most sold album of the year. Next, Khujo Goodie, despite a near fatal car crash that cost him a leg, released Man Not The Dog. In its first week on the charts, the single rose to first in the Finnish single's chart and held that position for four weeks. Gimmel's first album Lentoon came out November 22, 2002 and just after it was published, it shot up to the number one spot in the official Finnish album chart and remained there for three weeks. T-Mo started the trend with his 2000 album, T-Mo 2 The Fullest; this was followed by Cee-Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections. It sold gold in a few days and platinum in 1½ weeks. Cee-Lo was not the first and definitely not the last member of the group to try his hand at a solo career.

The first single they published was Etsit muijaa seuraavaa, which was released on October 25, 2002. His 2003 single "I'll Be Around" (featuring megastar producer and fellow southerner Timbaland) was a much more commercially successful song, but still maintained his idiosyncratic style. Other than these meanings, "gimmel" also is a slang term for slapping man's face with one's penis [source: UrbanDictionary.com (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Gimmel)]. The album explored many new frontiers for hip hop, with elements of soul, jazz and pop combined with Cee-Lo's signature vocal style, positive messages and constantly changing delivery. Gimmel is the third letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and it also means the number three. Group member Cee-Lo has since embarked on a solo career, releasing the critically acclaimed album Cee-Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections in 2002, to limited commercial success. They also symbolised an endless and firm relationship. In1999, the group released World Party, their third release.

Once these parts joined together a groom, a bride, and a witness. The album's follow-up was Still Standing, which expanded Goodie Mob's considerable fanbase just as the Dirty South broke into the mainstream with OutKast's Stankonia. The word Gimmel means a renaissance wedding ring that contains three parts. Along with OutKast's Southernplayalisticadillacmuzak, it put Atlanta on the hip-hop map. They decided to adopt the name Gimmel. Based out of Atlanta, Goodie Mob's debut, Soul Food (1995) was critically acclaimed. Ushma, Susanna, and Jenni continued. Goodie Mob is one of the premiere hip hop acts to come out of the Dirty South.

After a few weeks arguments between the girls increased, and Jonna decided to leave the band. Members of the first Popstars band in Finland were Jenni Vartiainen, Susanna Korvala, Ushma Karnani, and Jonna Pirinen. 25 girls made it to the final selection round. 454 young women participated in the singing tests.
