It’s fair to say it was the news nobody was expecting. According to a statement posted on the Sugababes official website last night, “The current line-up of the Sugababes has disbanded. Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah will continue as the Sugababes and will be joined by new member Jade Ewen. They release their album ‘Sweet 7’ on November 23rd through Island Records. Keisha Buchanan will continue to record for Island Records as a solo artist.”
Well blow me down. The world and his wife was expecting it to be Amelle.
However, in true silver lining style, this means the MSN Xclusives performance we recorded on September 16 at Movida nightclub was the last to feature Keisha.

So, what do you think? Can Sugababes continue without any original members? Let us know on the MSN Music messageboards.
