WATCH: JC Chasez Explains Why He Founded Girl Radical, His Massive 11-Person Girl Group

Boy bands are back in a big way, as anyone who watched Sunday evening's MTV Video Music Awards can attest, but girl groups, not so much. 'N Sync's J.C. Chasez is hoping to change all that with the launch of Girl Radical, a 11-person "supergroup" he founded after becoming familiar with AKB48, a Japanese idol girl group that currently has 88 members and holds the Guinness World Record for Largest Pop Group.

This week, the group premiered the first of 5 webisodes that cover how the group got started, the audition process, the making of the first single, and exclusive interview clips with J.C. Chasez.
"It's the first time I've gotten excited about a pop project in like, 10 years," Chasez explains.

The next webisode will premiere Thursday, August 29th. In the meantime, check out the group's debut single and video, a cover of No Doubt's 1995 hit "Just a Girl," below.
