Boy Bands Are Making A Comeback, Here’s Proof

There are currently not one but TWO UK boy bands with singles and albums climbing the chart ladders. The Wanted are one, with their massive hit “Glad You Came” (I can hear the immature laughter now, emitting from my apartment) which is number four on iTunes’ top songs.

The other band of grinning professionally-coiffed miscreants are One Direction aka 1D, which L.A. Times compares to The Jackson 5, ‘N Sync, NKOTB and the Osmonds. Jackon 5 comparisons seem like a reach and an insult to Michael, but that’s just me.

One Direction, who were put together by evil genius mastermind Simon Cowell in 2010 after every member appeared as a contestant on overseas X-Factor, are appearing on Saturday Night Live on April 7th with host Sofia Vergara.

Their song, the accented-Bieberesque “What Makes You Beautiful,” broke Sony pre-sale records, won a Brit award for Best Single and reached the highest debut position on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1998.Look guys, you’re cute in a little brother, nearly-my-son kind of way, but you’ll just never compare to Justin and JC. I’m 26 now, I’m not disillusioned enough for this. I’ll be front and center, waiting six days in advance to by tickets when Clint Eastwood, Ryan Gosling, Hugh Jackman and Blair Underwood start performing together.

    I watched the Graham Norton show. He tends to have boy bands from the UK on his show. After “Bye Bye Bye” how is anyone going to top that.
