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 This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi.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. In a 2000 episode of SNL, Ana Gasteyr in character as Martha Stewart proclaimed that she was cutting her ties as spokesperson for K-Mart because the chain had refused to stock the latest album by her "homie" Ghostface Killah. In summer 2003, they released their second album called Kaksi kertaa enemmän, and in the end of the year a music video Harmaata lunta. Though Ghostface has had little mainstream success musically, he has managed to make something of an impression on mainstream pop culture, similarly to his groupmates ODB and Method Man. 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. He also appeared on the track "On My Knees" by UK R&B group The 411 which became a hit in the UK and Australia, and released an album titled 718 with a group of his proteges, calling themselves The Theodore Unit. This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi. In April of 2004, The Pretty Toney Album was released on Def Jam; it featured collaborations with Missy Elliott and Jadakiss and was Ghostface's first album to be credited to "Ghostface" rather than "Ghostface Killah".

Gimmel's second single Roviolla was released on January 27, 2003, and it got the third position in its first week in the charts. He had another minor club hit with "Flowers" which featured guest vocals from fellow Wu-Tang members Method Man and Raekwon. In 2002, almost 85 000 copies of the album were sold, and it was the most sold album of the year. Ghostface wasted little time in recording his next album, the heavily R&B-influenced Bulletproof Wallets which was released a year after Supreme Clientele. 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. "Cherchez La Ghost", a single off the album, became a minor club hit, and the sentimental "Child's Play" brought Ghostface numerous comparisons with Slick Rick. It sold gold in a few days and platinum in 1½ weeks. His follow-up to Ironman was Supreme Clientele in 2000 (see 2000 in music), which was critically acclaimed by both mainstream critics and hip hop enthusiasts.

The first single they published was Etsit muijaa seuraavaa, which was released on October 25, 2002. Ghostface became well-known for both his uptempo, seemingly indecipherable stream-of-consciousness raps and, later in his career, for his very emotionally charged delivery (first seen on the Wu-Tang Clan track "Impossible"). 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)]. His first solo LP was Iron Man in 1996 (see 1996 in music), which was successful in hip hop circles and debuted at #2 on the pop charts. Gimmel is the third letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and it also means the number three. As a solo artist, he first appeared on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx (with clan-mate Raekwon, 1995, see 1995 in music), then on the soundtracks to Sunset Park and Don't Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood. They also symbolised an endless and firm relationship. He also goes by the alias of Tony Starks, the real identity of super hero Iron Man.

Once these parts joined together a groom, a bride, and a witness. After the Wu-Tang achieved breakthrough commercial success in the early 1990s, Ghostface Killah, like most of his clan-mates, began a solo career. The word Gimmel means a renaissance wedding ring that contains three parts. Ghostface Killah aka (born Dennis Coles) is an American rapper and member of the Wu-Tang Clan. They decided to adopt the name Gimmel. Ushma, Susanna, and Jenni continued.

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.
