Caution, sing-along danger! Because this time it's about songs that really everyone knows. And it feels like the noughties, i.e. the first decade of the new millennium, are not that long ago.
New technology will be defining in this decade. The euro is also introduced. Beamers and flat screens are finding their way into our living rooms, digital cameras and mobile phones are replacing analogue cameras, and social networks such as Facebook and the video platform YouTube are becoming an important part of our everyday lives. Digitization is also making itself felt musically, and downloads are supplanting CDs or even records.
In addition, the first casting and reality formats started on German television in the 2000s. The "No Angels" win the first season of "Popstars" and become celebrated stars throughout Europe.
Mega artists like Robbie Williams, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake have outgrown their boy and girl groups and, like rappers 50 Cent and Eminem, have given us many unforgettable tracks.
Lady Gaga surprises with bizarre costumes, and the Gorillaz take the stage as the first virtual band in music history.
Strong women like P!nk and Katy Perry encourage their female fans to do what they want to do - and skater girl Avril Lavigne takes her unconventional clothing style to new heights.
Our music documentary "Pop Giants - 2000s" takes you back to the decade of antlers and mp3 players, when you suddenly wore your skirt over your jeans.
Our Pop Giants experts Gülcan Kamps, comedienne Jacqueline Feldmann, ex MTV presenter Patrice Bouédibéla, rapper Eko Fresh, Nilz Bokelberg, Marco Schreyl, as well as influencer and actress Yvonne Pferrer with Cologne 50667 hottie Danny Liedtke and last but not least "No Angel" Lucy. They talk about their first downloads and YouTube experiences and what kind of music they were listening to back then. Also a lot of bling bling, the football World Cup, a crazy frog and a lot of “rroo ka do ka do goong ka do ka roo ka doong doong” jungle drums.
