The Sugababes Paradox finally completes

A long time ago I posted about the Sugababes Paradox, which is a variant of the Sorites Paradox.

I can't find the original post (it was 2005), but the idea was that as the members of the Sugababes get replaced, are they the still the Sugababes?

As of my earlier article only one original member remained, but today the BBC News site carries the sorry tale of that one original member finally being replaced: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8268060.stm

The paradox finally hits us. The new trio are the Sugababes, but what if the original three members formed another group? Who would be the Sugababes then?
