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 This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi.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.
