One direction is the most amazing boyband ever, they are cute, they sing really well, and their songs are just perfect! I can honestly say I am a Directioner! I think that they will become one of the greatest artist ever. Because on their own they are good, but when they start singing together they are just AMAZING!

I knew one direction would be in the top 20! They are one of the best new fresh boy bands we have had in a very long while! They are so young and have such an amazing future a head of them. The fact that they have one of the biggest fan bases worldwide prove how good they are!

They are really amazing especially zayn, he really makes their band more alive when he sings, his the human echo.

4The Jackson 5

Although The Beatles may get the most votes, I do believe that the Jackson 5 Were great performers as they had great dance routine's as well as singing.

The Jackson 5 worked beyond hard, and they didn't take the easy way out.

This makes no sense at all, number 10! I was born in 98 and I can tell you that the Jackson 5 are number one and New Edition should be in the top 5, worst list I ever seen in my life

The Jackson 5 is the best, especially Michael Jackson (the King of Pop) - malamJONES

5Five

Coolest bad boys in the world. Most of their songs inspires me to never give up on life. To stay positive always and to keep up with the challenges that life has to offer. I miss them so much. I hope someday they'll reunite and continue inspiring not just me but other people's live as well. 5ive rocks always and forever. Bear hugs

FIVE are a band that will never be forgotten. We want them back together for a FIVE reunion because they deserve their second chance so much more than other bands. So if you agree and are a FIVE fan for life come and join are twitter trend or follow the five fanpage on facebook. Like FIVE once said we will rock you. X

They are the best in the world! Their songs fill your life positives!

Best band ever

6N Sync

Best choreography, best outfits (even though the 90's style was weird), best voices, best routines, best videos, most talented members (Justin Timberlake, I mean come on), and best songs. No boyband these days even come close to that. I honestly don't understand how One Direction is 2nd and Nsync is 6th. "No Strings Attached" sold 2.42 million copies on it's first week while the most albums One Direction has sold is 546,000 in it's first week. Also Nsync is rated the 8th best selling boyband ever (which is quite impressive considering they've only released 3 albums, while One Direction didn't even make the top 10 and they've released 5 albums and didn't have any competition whereas Nsync was rivaled with Backstreet Boys and other boybands during the 90s. All One Direction does is run around the stage, pointing, singing, and looking like they came out of a Gap commercial. Nsync is dancing, running around the stage, adding dialogue to their songs, involving the audience, AND singing. ...more

Great voices, catchiest tunes & awesome dance moves! N'Sync COME BACK!

One Direction is the worst boy band of all time. Nsync and the Backstreet Boys are the best. Everything about Nsync is amazing. They had great personalities, awesome singing voices, and incredible dancing. One Direction doesn't have any of that. Their personalities are all the same, their singing voices are generic as hell, and they can't dance at all. All they do is jump around, point, and smile. Boy bands were so much better in the 90s and Nsync were one of the best.

One direction is the best and will be the best forever.

7New Kids on the BlockNew Kids on the Block is an American boy band from Boston, Massachusetts. The band currently consists of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood.

Half of this list wouldn't be here if it werent for NKOTB.

They have proven to be the best by having such a successful comeback 20 years later. How many boy bands have done that? And their devotion and love of their fans cannot be compared! I say it proud when I declare myself a Block Head for life! Whoot Whoot! :-)

I love em 5 guys, so cute and talented! Plus they're touring w Backstreet Boys nw and the 2 boy bands make a awesome collaboration

8Super Junior

Super Junior are one of the most talented beautiful bands in the world. They have worked so hard, and come so far... Nobody can beat their angelic, gorgeous voices they are the greatest boy band of all time. They have sweat and bled to become this famous, but they wont stop here, because something Suju aren't is quitters. They will pull through till the end. Our brave boys are even putting themselves up for the army, which no ELF could completely agree with, but they are so brave fighting for their beautiful country. We can only hope Heechul and the others will be safe and come back to us. Super Junior will always be the most talented boys ever, their songs will bring anybody to tears. They put all their hearts into it. SUJU AND ELFS HWAITING!

Super Juniors have really come a long way since their first album. The boys have developed into all-round performers. With the best dances, strongest stage presence and most supportive fans, they are really in a class of their own. SuJu... Fighting~

Super Junior is the best band in the whole world. They make us ELFs so proud of them. Their song are amazing and they will do anything to make us ELFs happy. I love Super Junior. They might have lost members along the way but we ELFs do believe that they will become 15 again. Super Junior are all so talented and perfect. No matter what happens I will continue to love and support them till the end. PROM15E TO 13ELIEVE. Saranghae Super Junior. Suju fighting. ELFs and Super Junior promise to fill the world with our sapphire blue balloons

10Boyz II MenBoyz II Men is an American R&B vocal group, best known for emotional ballads and a cappella harmonies.

Harmony like no other. Most albums sold by any band.

These guys sing better than all the other boy bands combined, and with perfect harmony.

They harmonize like no other. Pure music, pure passion, pure talent.

I rate them at 1 or 2

125 Seconds of Summer5 Seconds of Summer are an Australian rock band from Sydney that formed in 2011. The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on the Take Me ...read more.

I'm a huge directioner but I think that 5sos should be on the countdown too because even if they aren't a boy band they are really good.

These boys really amazing! I think they should be at least 1st or 2nd I mean they are too awesome!

They are most definitely the best. They can play their own instruments and sing their own songs. All of the members are talented. Ashton can play drums, guitar, piano and the sax also is a state level swimmer. Calum plays the bass and played for Australia in soccer. They aren't manufactured and fake. They are truly inspirational and true.

I think 5sos are really good.

13Blue

Current boy bands and artists should really look up to BLUE because they're music's seriously FANTABULOUS, catchy and with meaning! Plus there's Lee, Anthony, Duncan and Simon, what else d'ya want! I'm so glad they made a come back (':

I just found them on YouTube and once I listened to their songs, I fell in love with the hot Blue band! I'm relieved they got back together, my life just got better. I can literally listen to the hot, talented, and handsome singers my whole day! BLUE IS THE BEST!

This song should be at the number 1 spot, They are better than all of those at the top.

Any day better than Stupid One direction.

14Jonas Brothers

Such an amazing band! Not only are their voices amazing, their lyrics deep, their looks gorgeous and their personalities so kind, but they write all of their own songs, and the music too! They all have big hearts and make some of the deepest, most beautiful music. They are so talent, they can all play the piano and guitar! And little nick who wrote most of their hits when we was only 14 - can also play the drums!

HOW CAN THEY NOT BE NUMBER 1? THEY ARE THE BEST. NICK'S VOICE IS UNIQUE AND EVERYBODY KNOWS JUST WATCH HIM SING "HAVEN'T MET YOU YET" AND "WHO I AM" AND JOE'S VOICE IS so HOT AND AMAZING AND KEVIN IS SO ENERGETIC AND ROCKS THE GUITAR. JONAS BROTHERS ALSO WRITE THEIR OWN SONGS AND PLAY THEIR OWN INSTRUMENTS.

Jonas Brothers are the most talented Band of the world. Three Brothers from New Jersey with million of fans around the world. And Their Music make people happy.

The Jonas brothers are amazing!

15The WantedThe Wanted are a British-Irish boy band consisting of members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes.

Besides the fame and everything. They are a band who absolutely love their fans and show appreciation to them in every way they could with weekly mailers and videos. They would come out to their fans and give hugs and interact with them. Just generally very nice and sweet lads. Not many celebrities do this for their fans. They are very honest people which some people do not like about them however, it just shows they are being themselves and speak their opinions.

The WANTED don't only make great music they are also great people and aren't just pretty faces like one direction. They are different and amazing and I know that some people don't like them but I do and always will!

I LOVE THE WANTED! And all you lot should to because they are AMAZING! If you have not yet heard one of their songs then go on you tube and check them out! Every single one of them are absoulutely gerogus! But my favourite has to be the youngest and cheekiest, NATHAN SYKES! Seriously guys check them out, I am telling you that you will like them and if you don't then - no affence but there must be something wrong with you! Xx Please it will be worth it! X

I love the wanted

16Monkees

Amazing and one of the most important bands of all history, incredible comedy and WONDERFUL music, sure, they used studio musicians on the first 2 LP, but hey, Headquarters is one of the top 5 greatest albums ever, still making impact today. The only band I would ever dare to compare with THE Beatles.

The Monkees are an awesome band - Judo05

Beautiful band, great harmonies, just a bit like the Beatles, but they are still fantastic.

Fantastic songs and great stage presence

19The Osmonds

The Osmonds are the best boy band ever, of all time, bar none. Compared to to the Osmonds, all other boy bands fall woefully short. The others are certainly good, but they can never match the talent of the Osmonds' vocals, harmonies, expert playing of so many instruments, dancing, song-writing, and so many other gifts and talents. Nor can the other boy bands match the endurance of the Osmonds who have over 54 years in the business and they are still filling auditoriums with fans. They are also multiplying themselves as seen through the talent of their children. In all of these years, they have maintained their good name and good reputations. That speaks volumes about the best boy band ever!

I have seen numerous concerts since I was a young girl, and I have never heard the Osmonds miss a note, never seen them too busy for their fans, never heard an unkind word, never seen them without a smile on their faces and love in their hearts. Even as very young boys, their voices were perfectly blended and beautiful, they are talented musicians and songwriters, and have been outstanding role models in an industry that has few good role models. Their talent and longevity are amazing!

No other boy band has or ever will match the talent of the Osmond Brothers. I have loved them since I was 13 years old (yes, I'm old as dirt now). They have it all--they can sing, dance, play numerous musical instruments, plus write their own music. They have more talent in their little fingers than any other boy band around. Their harmony is unsurpassed. They are humble role models and salt of the earth people. They sold out stadiums filled with fans back in their day. England absolutely adores them. The Osmonds have lasted over the years because they are superb all around entertainers. I have seen Donny & Marie in Las Vegas where their show has been named the best show on the strip. As with everything, all good things must come to an end. I hate seing them retire one by one due to health problems. What I would give to see the Osmond Brothers together again for one last concert. But I have my wonderful memories. THE OSMOND BROTHERS ROCK FOREVER!

I've been a fan of the Osmonds since the Andy Williams days. There will never be another "boy band" as talented.

20Hanson

Hanson is one of the best boy bands in the world. They are very intelligent and talented. They composed all of their songs and hits, one of these is the monster hit Mmmbop. They play the instruments where they create really good melodies. They all have beautiful voices. They treasure their fans. They're role models. They all have good attitudes, very down to earth and funny! That's why they have loyal and many fans around the world!

They were famous back then, but their music today is what makes them one of the best "boy bands" of all time if you care to call them that.

They write their own music. ALL OF IT. And they perform instruments instead of dancing with as little talent as some of these other bands out there.

Everything that has been said here is very true. Every song in their album is undoubtedly OUTSTANDING, I mean not just their singles but EVERYTHING in EVERY ALBUM. I know exactly why, because they sing from their hearts and that's really something that HANSON brothers really want to do all their lives.

Hanson is one of the best boy bands of all time. Their lyrics and rhythm is unparalleled. I think they also serve as a positive influence to the youth of today.
