* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: In "Biology", Nadine sings "controversy" as "conTROversy", which is the British pronunciation, rather than the conventional "[=CONtroversy=]", which confused some American listeners.

** LyricalShoehorn: On occasion, Xenomania will deploy this to make the lyrics fit with the melodies. The consensus on some lyrics site is that the second line of "Something Kinda Ooooh" is "Doctor gotta heat it up", and not "Gotta gotta heat it up".

* RecordProducer: Xenomania is the George Martin type, consisting of producer Brian Higgins, lyricist Miranda Cooper, and their assistants. Aside for the ''Sound of the Underground'' album, "Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me", and the cover songs, Xenomania have written and produced every single song and album. The group fully credits Xenomania as the key to their success, even thanking them at the 2009 Brits when they won Best British Single for "The Promise".

** The TV show that set out to create Girls Aloud also featured a girl who claimed she was 16 to make it into the competition. She made it fairly far... And was then revealed to be 13.

** Nicola's solo career gained more critical praise than both Cheryl ''and'' Nadine, but her album was only a modest seller. However, she has found much more success as TheFashionista and a successful makeup range tailored for pale women like herself.
** Kimberley released a CoverAlbum of showtunes to mixed reviews, but has garnered slightly more praise for her turn as Fiona in ''Shrek: The Musical'' and as a guest singer and television personality.

** Their covers of "See the Day" and "I Think We're Alone Now" are also ignored.

* CutenessProximity: PlayedForLaughs on a sketch for their Christmas special, where the only reason they invited [[Series/ThePaulOGradyShow Paul O'Grady]] over for Christmas was that they wanted to play with his dog, Buster.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The "Sexy! No No No..." video. The portion of their tours that feature the song are generally stylized to look darker than the other segments.

* GenreRoulette: While firmly standing in {{Pop}} territory, they've experimented with all kinds of genres. ''Out of Control'' is probably the best example of their variation in style; that one album alone sees them playing with {{Soul}}, Drum & Bass, ElectronicMusic, {{Funk}}, Dancehall, AlternativeRock, PowerPop ''and'' CountryMusic.
** "Biology" hops from blues to cabaret to electronica, while "Sexy! No No No..." is literally three different songs sewn together to bridge synthpop, punk rock, and samba rhythms.

* MotorMouth: Cheryl. The girls just tend to let her do most of their speaking when it came to group interviews and she's described herself as that girl who just never shuts up.
** When the music calls for it, she and Nadine can sing as rapidly as possible, as evidenced on songs like "Money", "Watch Me Go", and "Something Kinda Ooooh".
