In 2003, Guemmour auditioned for the television show Popstars – Das Duell, but was eliminated during the callback. In 2006, she auditioned again, this time for Popstars – Neue Engel braucht das Land where she made it throughout the entire competition and became a member of the girl group Monrose. The group turned out to be very popular, attaining two number-one singles on the German Singles Charts ("Shame" and "Hot Summer") and landing a total of seven top-10 hits, of which six of them were attained before 2008.

In 2007, Guemmour collaborated with German musician Dieter Falk on the track "Kein Schöner Land", from his album Volkslieder. The following year, she was featured on German rapper Kool Savas' single "Melodie", which reached a peak position of 68 on the Official German Charts' Top 100 Singles chart.[3]

On 9 September 2008, Guemmour, along with Oliver Petszokat, began hosting the German edition of The Singing Bee on television channel ProSieben; the program ran until early 2009. Furthermore, she served a jury member of the German talent show Mascerade.

On 25 November 2010, Monrose announced that they would disband in early 2011.
