Kimberly Wyatt is an American singer, choreographer and television personality.
Kimberly Wyatt began dancing at the age of seven. At the age of 14 she earned a scholarship to study in New York’s Joffrey Ballet and the Broadway Dance Center. At the age of seventeen, she graduated from high school and flew to Las Vegas to audition for cruise ship and casino shows. She worked in a revue on Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas for two years.
In 2003 she danced in Nick Lachey’s music video for the single “Shut Up”, choreographed by Robin Antin. It was here that Robin asked Kimberly to join the Pussycat Dolls. Kimberly does the standing oversplit in most Pussycat Dolls videos, her trademark move.
Wyatt’s first vocal role in the Pussycat Dolls came when she recorded a solo song called “Don’t Wanna Fall in Love” for the Deluxe Edition of their second album, Doll Domination. After Jessica Sutta, Wyatt was the second member to announce her departure from the group.
Wyatt became one of three judges of Sky1’s dance show, Got to Dance, alongside Ashley Banjo and Adam Garcia, in 2010.
In October 2010 it was announced that Wyatt along with Paula Abdul and Travis Payne would be judges on Live to Dance, the US version of Got to Dance.
In March 2015 it was announced that Wyatt would take part in ITV’s Give a Pet a Home show which works alongside the RSPCA in Birmingham. In July 2015 she won the final of Celebrity MasterChef on BBC One, beating Sam Nixon, Rylan Clark and Scott Maslen.
In November 2015 Kimberly Wyatt became a School Sport Ambassador in the UK for the Youth Sport Trust, promoting health and well-being for young women through dance.
