Flemish/Dutch girl band with a Dutch repertoire, mainly aimed at pre-adolescent children. The name of the group is derived from the names of the three original Flemish members: Karen Damen, Kristel Verbeke and Kathleen Aerts. Kathleen Aerts left the group on 23 March 2009. The Dutch Josje Huisman was chosen as K3's new member through a reality show called [i]K2 zoekt K3[/i] on 3 October 2009.

K3 started by [a=Niels William]. Initially, women in their twenties were the target audience, which is noticeable in early K3 song lyrics. Their first single, "Wat Ik Wil", was not very successful. In 1999, K3 participated with the song "Heyah Mama" in the live television shows to select the Belgian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. The song was not selected but was released as a single and became the band's first big hit. About a year after becoming famous in Flanders, K3 also became famous in the Netherlands. Notable hits are "Alle Kleuren", "Hippie Shake", "Tele-Romeo", "Toveren", "Oya Lélé" and "MaMaSé!".

K3 is noted for being the first pop act to break through to the top of the charts without receiving any airplay from regular music television channels. Niels William's marketing concept was based on promotion via children and cartoon channels like Fox Kids. Since 2002 the band is managed by Studio 100, a Flemish television production company for Dutch and Belgian children's programs.
