From the Beatles to the Backstreet Boys, boy bands have been around forever. We may not have seen too much of them in the past couple of years, but now they are are back and ready to take over again. Two boy bands in particular have emerged as favorites. They are: One Direction and The Wanted.
One Direction is a British-Irish pop sensation formed by Simon Cowell on the X-Factor. The band, which consists of Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, placed third in the competition and immediately became a hit in the UK. After the release of their album Up All Night, “One Direction Infection” has spread to countries all over the world. They have recently appeared on popular shows such as Saturday Night Live and the Today Show. They also made Billboard history.
