* The DisneyChannel original movie ''Pixel Perfect'' revolved around a [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots hologram]] created by a band who needed a singer. She is, well, a perfect singer and dancer. Not to forget drop dead beautiful.

* DisneyChannel's been doing this with many of their [[TeenIdol teen and child stars]] (particularly their female ones, although a growing number of the males are getting this as well- the main examples being Music/TheJonasBrothers and recently RossLynch), hoping to cash in on them as much as possible before they hit their twenties.

** Way back in the Johto arc, there was a girl named Brittany who sang on stage with her two Igglybuff. Bonus points for being voiced by Creator/YuiHorie and being named after singers in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chihiro_Yonekura Japan]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britney_Spears America]].

** An episode featured an idol singer named Risa Purple with her trademark purple hair. Ran cosplays her at her concert - and ends up getting kidnapped in her place.

%%* * Primera the fairy from ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle''.Magic Knights Rayearth appears as one in an early arc of ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle''.
* In ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'', Saki was one. She's definitely the BrokenBird style cynical portrayal of this trope - she got into it to escape her AbusiveParents, and it's implied that she was also abused by her producers quite a lot. Specifically, [[spoiler: the infamous unusual HorrorHunger attack late in the first season wasn't the first time she's been a victim of [[RapeAsDrama that sort of thing]].]] And if she can still remember all of her lines from the movie she starred in back then...

* Idol singers that came in a group of attractive girls or commonly known as "Idol Group" become a cultural phenomenon in Japan since 70's with Pink Lady and Onyanko Club (that had 52 members at the time). In the 2000's, after the wake of popularity of Morning Musume of Music/HelloProject, many Idol groups successfully debuted thereafter such as Music/AKB48 (and its sisters Music/NMB48 and Music/HKT48), Music/MomoiroCloverZ, Music/TokyoGirlsStyle, Berryz Kobo, C-Ute, Nogizaka46, Idolling!, SUPER GIRLS, Music/BabyMetal of Music/SakuraGakuin, Passpo, and Dempagumi.inc. They've gained vast popularity and even dominated the music charts, this phenomenon is dubbed as the "Warring Era of Idols" (''Idol Sengoku Jidai'').

* Subverted with Music/{{Perfume}} in that the group was initially an idol group in their earlier years but as their songs gained a more distinct style of techonopop [[GrowingTheBeard the group became a "near future technopop unit"]].

* A specific American example from around the same time as UsefulNotes/TheBritishInvasion: All the big Motown names were pulled right from the streets of Detroit, which [[CaptainObvious wouldn't make for a very good image.]] In order to clean them up, Berry Gordy set up a charm school specifically for up-and-coming Motown singers. If they didn't pass, they weren't allowed to perform.

** '''2000s''': Say it with me now ... TaylorSwift.
* His most vicious critics blasted him as nothing but a [[TeenIdol Teen Idol]] who corrupted youths with his suggestive hip movements while singing and his love for amplified pop music, dismissing it as "garbage" and "noise." That was nearly 60 years ago, and of course the criticism has softened; many people today who were the critics' ages back then (50s and older) point to him for his powerful baritone voice and clean image, comparably speaking ... and of course that would be ElvisPresley.

** Averted by ''Anime/Macross7''[='s=] female lead Mylene Jenius, who's instead the bassist and backup vocalist for rock band Fire Bomber. However, this trope is parodied by Jamming Birds, a GirlGroup whose efforts to emulate Fire Bomber's success against the enemy fail... because [[TakeThat they're singing songs from]] ''Anime/MacrossII''.

Added DiffLines:

** In the non-canon ''Anime/MacrossII'', the UN Spacy have actively weaponized idol singers, who are now the main line of defense against invading Zentraedi fleets. This strategy stops working when the Mardook counteract it with their own singing.

[[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses She is also a princess in a fantasy-esque setting]], which makes it kind of weird when she's singing in [[SchizoTech a modern concert stage while in a medieval city.]]
