En Vogue were one of the most popular and innovate female groups ever. Vocal range and image, during the 90s they set the standard for female groups today like Destiny's Child.

Love love LOVE this group! Incredible talent. Beautiful soul. Never Gonna Get It. Free Your Mind. Whatta Man...

They were too short lived. I would love to hear more from them.

Heck yes!

They reinvogorated the girl group format forever and influenced nearly every female group that followed, including SWV, TLC, Total, Destiny's Child, Brownstone, Xscape & many others.

Yes, TLC was more successful, but talent wise, they didn't hold a candle to En Vogue. En Vogue was the definitive girl group of the '90s.

you can't put en vogue in if the pointer sisters didn't make it.

Besides being the most versatile vocal group ever, En Vogue also contributed immensely to the music video. To think that they made directors like Mark Romanek and Matthew Rolston sought after by superstars like Michael, Janet, and Madonna says something.
They had songs with messages like "Free Your Mind", "Lies", "Part of Me", and "Does Anybody Hear Me".
They changed the face of music forever and I hope people realize that. Mary J. Blige is always credited with being the first to fuse R&B and hip hop but En Vogue did it to years before her on Born to Sing. They juxtaposed their soulful harmonies and impeccable lead vocals with hip hop beats. Don't sleep on the Funky Divas.

En Vogue reigns in female groups. It would be cool if lablelle or pointer sisters got it, but when En VOgue is eligile they have got to get it.

I much prefer SWV to En Vouge. Ironically, SWV doesn't even have a page on this site so we can't even vote/comment. Hmmmmmm

I think En Vogue has a chance. Going through my music CD's, my mind flashed back to En Vogue & the 90's period. They reminded me of the MoTown sound with some Rap & Rock beats thrown in for good measure.

Free Your Mind was a massive hit. En Vogue has some of the Hall of Fame criteria in that they had a unique, innovative sound & influenced the later 90's & 2000's women bands like Destiny's Child. They incorporated fashion & style in their interesting videos which were landmark for their time. RRHOF are always looking to put deserving groups in HOF. En Vogue deserving as well as TLC. KING
