The Top Ten

One Direction
One Direction are definitely the most famous boy band in the world! They have done so much already in such short time since October 2010 when they first performed together on The X Factor judges houses, since then they have released two albums which have been undeniably successful all over the world, they have finished a tour which launched there first album 'Up All Night' and are now halfway through their tour 'Take Me Home' named after their second time, each tour the venues and setlist have got bigger and better and have grown with them, and now they have sold out a 2014 arena tour, performing in some of the biggest venues in the world! But One Direction are still so down to earth, kind and funny, just like they were when we first saw them together on the stairs in their video diaries, One Direction are a massive inspiration and are definitely the most famous boy band in the world!
Guys have you bumped your head really hard because I think ya did I mean seriously one direction is the worst band of all they were caught taking drugs back stage I mean come on what is wrong with you guys?! The best is the vamps
One direction is absolutly breathless. There songs are just mesmerizing, and have no words to describe them. I direction have chaned my life. I was not in music stuff, but as I heard 1D's songs, I went and searched more and more, watched videos, read their tweets, it was getting crazy. I m a 100% dedicated directioner. I don't cry or faint for them, but I just wonder how they r so good-looking with excellent voices, best personalities, and top of all they r down to earth. I just love em madly. They r deserved to be the number 1 band and celebrities in world. They r like a godgift to us. Its brilliant. All the members of 1D r special in their own ways. But I m an indian directioner, and I think that they should seriously come to india. There r millions of fans here too. But you don't ever come to india, nor are your albums or movies available here. Just think that if with only internet we r your so big fans, wt will happen if you will come here. Please do a show in india. Thousands of indians r requestiong this. We also deserve U. Wtever, but I hate directionaters. How can people even hate them. 1D you and your songs rock!
One Direction Kills me every time by their sexy voice and their faces. Somehow, They became my inspirations and teachers in life. They deserve to be the Most Famous Boyband! Harry is such a cupcake. Louis is such a kiddo even though, He's the oldest in the band. Liam is really a good guy and has a very big heart. Niall is such a cutie, He always say "Yes" whenever a fan asked him to marry him. Zayn the Bradford's Badboi, Even though he's called in that way, He's not like other Badboys. He respects Girls too much. From stairs to stadiums! I really love these lads so much! They're my everything! I'm totally addicted to them as well as other Directioners. Their family are very nice. Sarooha, Zayn's cousin, We talk to each other via Facebook, As well as Waliyha and Doniya. Daisy Tomlinson and Lottie.

2Take That
Take That are made up of five people; Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange, Howard Donald, and Robbie Williams. These five men have created some of the most beautiful and well known music throughout the whole of the UK from the ages of 16 and above. They have been branded by the press as "The biggest boyband since the Beatles" which I agree to be 100% true.

They are dedicated to their work and to keep their fanbase, their loyal Thatters, happy which is a beautiful thing. Sure, they had a ten year break, but even during that time their music was not forgotten, and they certainly were not forgotten by Thatters.

Me personally, I am 15 years old, so I was not around when Take That were first at the top of their game. I got to know Take That some time after they rejoined. Ever since I first got to listen to their music, have it fill my ears, their lyrics, melodies, harmonies and meaning, I fell in love for the first time, and this is the type of love that never dies. Their music is special to so many people, it has saved lives around the world and not many people can do something like that, be able to touch the lives of others they don't even know, people they have never seen or met in person, which just makes these people so much more amazing than others, they touch people's hearts, and once there are there, they never go away, no matter how old you are or how long you have known their music.

When you get to know their music for the first time, you then get to know the band members as individuals, as proper human beings, you relate to them, build friendships and bonds with them that they themselves are not aware of but that doesn't matter, because you don't need them to know about it in order to love them. Each member is special in their own right.

Gary Barlow: The amazing, strong, singer songwriter who runs the ship, the Captain of the band, our Captain. He creates the lyrics, blends the melodies and gives everyone something to work from, to build on, he is the foundations that the band stands. Ever since he was 15 years old, he has been destined to write beautiful songs, to share his gift with the world and to do even more besides.

Mark Owen: The cheeky, sweet, kind and loving little man who brings his own unique flare to the lyrics and melodies and harmonies, the one who keeps everything alive through the amount of detail he looks into things.

Jason Orange: The handsome, wise, brilliant addition to the band. He again adds his own strength to the band, developing the music and vocals with his own talent and glueing everything, and everyone, together.

Howard Donald: The funny, charismatic, energetic one who may stay in the background in the harmonies and instrumental section, but includes a factor that keeps the band afloat, he contributes more than people realise.

Robbie Williams: The other cheeky one who started off in the band as the one who may have been ignore, perhaps neglected to be able to show what talent he had. He took his own time away to prove himself of his worth, and he did just that, he proved himself, and over time, he was welcome back into the band with open arms. The feud between him and Gary now long since forgotten, two men confessed their wrongs, apologised and moved on together, and now they work side by side again, creating beautiful music once again.

Those are the five members, you can have Take That without Robbie, we all now this and we don't mind, they are happy to continue as either a four or a five, they are brilliant and amazing regardless, they create art together as a group, but they are more than that. Take That are not just a 'band', they are a group of friends, they are A friendship, then you add in us Thatters and Take That becomes a family, a force, their bonds within the band just make them so much stronger, they are strongest with each other there with them. Then that strength is passed down to their fans, their strength becomes our strength, we feed of each other because we are one, we are a whole and we stick by each other, through the ups and the downs, we will never leave their side and they will never leave theirs.

Take That inspire so many people, they show people that anyone can be whatever they want to be, that no matter who you are, where you came from, how you grew up and the circumstanced you grew up in, you can be destined for anything you set your mind to. Take That were formed the old fashioned way, but responding to a tiny add in a newspaper, a small and otherwise unnoticed opportunity that most people would have just ignored, but those five didn't ignore it. They took that opportunity with both hands and auditioned, they were accepted and from then on they worked. They worked and worked and worked and worked, they got rejected, laughed at, ignored, people doubted them, they never believed that five boys from Manchester who roll around in jelly could ever amount to anything, but they were wrong, so SO wrong. Those five boys kept going, they kept working through thick and thin and as a result people started to like them, they got noticed and that made them work harder, then people started to love them, people fell in love with these boys and before you knew it they were on top of the world. Screaming girls followed them wherever they went, they were adored by millions, they camped outside their houses all night just to get a glimpse of them. Take That didn't even need the publicity of a major talent show to get them to the top, they did it all by themselves through hard work and the gift of pure talent which makes them special, it makes them true talent, true artists and that makes them the best boy band in the world.

I for one am so happy that they rejoined because if they hadn't them I wouldn't be able to listen to their beautiful music, I wouldn't be able to escape from my life when it gets hard and be somewhere safe and happy, I wouldn't be able to do that if it wasn't for them. I wish I could have been there at the beginning, because then I could have gone through the torment and heartbreak of them splitting, only to be overjoyed when they came back. I will never have those memories and feeling, but thanks to them coming back I can have the new ones, the ones to come and I can still look back at them when they were younger, share some of those older memories with everyone else.

That is the beauty of Take That I suppose, no matter where along their timeline you decided to jump on board the Thatter Train and share the joy and love for these five men, you will always feel at home, you will ALWAYS feel like you belong weather you were there from the start or not. You get Thatter love and you get the love from the five of them as well because they don't care where you joined on either, they are just happy to have you be part of the family.

So that is that, Take That are a family that I for one and proud to be a part of. They will ALWAYS be the best boy band in the world in my heart, and nothing and no-one can EVER change that.
If someone was to ask me about take that and why I'd like them, this is what they will get:
Well TAKE THAT aren't just a boyband, they are like a religion! You just cannot live without them. They are just perfect! They haven't just got the voice ( which is brilliant by the way) they've got the looks, personality, smile and a heart! Gary is just an inspiration to everyone I think. The things he has gone through with the loss of his dad and his little darling daughter poppy is the past 4 years is awful anyway I won't go into to much detail about that. He's climbed killmanjaro, he written a hit single at 15 and didn't know, he became so successful over the years, he even did a diamond jubilee celebration for the queen! That was 'absolutely fantastic'. Now he is a Sir, Sir Gary Barlow. He is just the definition of perfection. Now lets not forget about the other 4. Mark, Mark Anthony Patrick Owen, my god is he good looking. He is so cheeky, he's like a little 5 year old when they see chocolate. He never seems to be down when there's paparazzi around, he manages to put on a brave face. As we know he did have 10 affairs, yes that's bad but please he did something about it! And sorted himself out and got back on track now I look up to him for that as do so many others. He has some corny jokes and some are embarrassing but you just laugh it off with him even though your not there next to him or even standing near him! Now if you told me this wonderful man was 42 I'd tell you where to go, he does nowhere near look 42! Now we have got Jason Thomas Orange. Back in the day when he had his hair short, hahaa not now, bless him, sat in costa, whoever finds him will be one lucky lady, I can't help but smile the way he walks- too funny, he's like a little spider with his legs, he can't stand still for more than 2 minutes I swear! I always remember when I went to see circus (I was only 12) he wore them stripy red trousers, bet everyone remembers that. My god did he look good haha, the best song what I think he has sung is wooden boat, it is so cute! I'm my opinion he shouldn't change for anyone, he's so enthusiastic when he goes on stage it's unbelievable I adore him for that. Anyway enough about r jay for a bit lets move onto who he danced with on 'hit man and her' yes, Howard Paul Donald- THIS HANDSOME FELLA! His little curly locks, aw. He can not be the oldest in the band. I choose not to believe that! He's like the daddy of them all aw. Who can forget that hit single NEVER FORGET you can't help but dance to that when it comes on, you have and that's have got to put those hands in the air and clap at the right time! If you know what I mean. Howard is just so perfect in every single way possible, his tweets are hilarious, if they don't cheer you up then I don't know what will. He's up for anything in my eyes! The fact that he is a dj tops it all off. Still trying to please everyone! Now, last but not least Robbie Peter WIlliams the entertainer, he is the little baby of the group bless him. All the boys love him I mean come on who doesn't? Yes he had a drinking problem and yes he nearly killed himself and do you know what, he is one of the strongest men I know cause he sorted himself out and got back on track just for YOU! (I can't help but be proud of him for that) You can call him what you like but he got himself here, he made his dream happen! As you know he left take that and then he did his solo career my, my did that go well! My favourite song has got to be 'eternity' I don't know why, it's just a beautiful song. Robbie was a little terror from what I've watched but if he wasn't he wouldn't be Robbie Williams what everyone knows! He must be doing something right! So back to take that they have a fandom called THATTERS - I'm not just saying this because I am one of them but these people are probably the most dedicated fans you could of possibly heard of/ meet. They are so loyal, it's unbelievable, not a bad word is said. We don't hate on take that's wife's girlfriends, we look up to them as if they are part of take that! Sounds weird I know but you see where I'm coming from. When you hear the word 'take that' you've got to admit you do fangirl over it or even if they come on telly for that split second you can't help but get excited and be proud of them. When a song comes on you just know all the lyrics and in someway that song will bring back memories whether its take that or not. Take that haven't only just brought me music they have brought me friends, I could probably trust them more then some of my friends that I have know ages. Just when they come on telly though, you can't help but let you heart shatter into a million pieces because their there, just stood there looking perfect in everyway, shape and form, they don't have to say anything and you can't help but get all excited and nearly cry because its them. Now some of you may not think this, this is just my opinion but yeah if someone asked me 'why do I like them' then this is my answer and if you've actually read all this then thankyou :-) I do appreciate it


They have stood the test of time despite entering the music business at a time when the industry was becoming more crowded with a variety of artists from different countries. With all the new technology during their lasting era, it has given them much to overcome, such as rivals from America. They have overcome it all however and Gary even works as a judge on the talent show that formed and created One Direction as you know it while Howard is on Got To Dance. Whether or not you like the artists and dancers they've helped and produced, it shows that they are still the elite and have been behind many of the faces you have come to love. Even if you love another band more, you should respect that individually and, most importantly, as a group they have changed people's lives for the better and without them you wouldn't have other artists. They have also inspired more than one generation and are loved by all alike and show how friendship and determination can overcome everything, against the odds, as cheesy as it may sound. Younger artists tend to succeed nowadays due to our stupid yet common judgements but still Take That remain to rise above the rest. That should be recognised so vote for them for once-they helped many of your favourite musical artists so, for once, help them back!

3Big Time Rush
Big time rush is the realist band ever. They always be themselves and they are such caring people. They help kids in need and they help the earth and encourage kids to be healthy and get active. Their songs are extremely different from any other band because they don't just talk about love love and more love, they talk about other things too for example their songs, "famous, big time rush, cover girl, elevate, and my favorite halfway there. Btr works so much harder than other bands in my mind. They record songs, go on tours, do interviews, work on their show, make music videos, help kids in need, help the earth and they don't try to compete with the other bands. They aren't the type of band who would say oh were the best you can't beat us were on top. Their not cocky and disrespectful to other bands like mindless behavior that's why there in 10th place on here. Btr rocks they made it third album congrats you guys rock! I'm a total rusher!
Big Time Rush is the most hardworking band I know. They are working ALL THE TIME nonstop. They are so caring and loyal to us. They put other people before themselves. These boys have hearts of gold and I can't thank them enough for helping me get over my insecurity. When I met them I was covering up my smile because that's my biggest insecurity. You know what they did? They told me "why are you covering up your smile? " And I couldn't respond because I was so scared. I had tears running down my face too. They hugged me and told me to keep smiling and to never cover up my smile because it was "beautiful" They told me I was beautiful. They made me feel beautiful... Special. I cry everyday thinking about how sweet they were to me. Thanks to those 4 boys I am more confident in myself than I ever have been. They deserve every fan they have. I can't think of any other band that's so special. I love them SO much! They don't do this for media. They don't do this to get attention. They do it because they are themselves. You wanna know how I know? There was NOBODY in that room besides myself and them. There were NO cameras what so ever. I don't know where I would be if Big Time Rush never crossed my path. Thank you Carlos, James, Logan, And Kendall... Thank you for saving my life.
Big Time Rush is the best boy band ever. They have great songs. They could beat one direction. Today in the morning I was talking to James Maslow he is a really nice and sweet guy. They do everything that is possible so they could talk with their fans. They are really nice guys they have a lot of fans mostly are in Mexico that is my opinion. But Big Time Rush is the best boy band ever they can be really awesome. But what they deserve is to be the #1 one band. And talking to one of the members of Big Time Rush (James Maslow) just made my day. It was everything that I wanted to talk to someone of the members of BTR is just made by day what am I sating my day my life! 1

Definitely westlife is the most biggest boyband in history of music industry, they sold millions of album worldwide they have lot's of fans.. All westlife songs are definitely all fantastic.. They are the most beautiful formed group ever.. So manny westlife songs are beautiful than backstreet boys, and even one direction... From 2000 until 2012 I can't count how manny albums did they bring back hone! And that's because of their success! They are the best boyband ever! Go westlife!
50 million records sold worldwide, 14 number-one singles, Guinness World Records as the UK's top-selling album group of the 21st century, a 82,300 capacity show sold out in 5 minutes etc... Various styles of good music, five (later on to four) good looking and truly singable guys, what's more? Since they've disbanded, they're going in FOUR directions.
This love lasts twelve years till now and it will last forever!I will never forget those memories with their songs, no matter how hard life could be, their music will always mean sunshine to me. The time when Mark Feehily said sweetheart, when he said he remember the gift I made for him, is the moment I know how real they could be and how close they can get to fans! They are kind and they respect all of their fans, it doesn't matter wherever you come from, the love for Westlife is the only thing matters and that is why they can stand for those amazing years and Westlife never be away...

5Backstreet Boys
Backstreet boys are absolutely The World's no. 1 since michael jackson's leave, what makes this band so Legendary is that they have their style of music, which is well known by their true fans


They are the Best boy band ever because during their time a lot of boy bands like WESTLIFE, N-SYNC, BOYZONE, FIVE, 98 DEGREES, BLUE, A1 AND ETC. but still the "BACKSTREET BOYS" is the Best Selling Album of all time in Boy Bands. And until now they have an album... And the Backstreet Boys is 2 decade in the music industry but still their making albums because the people still love it but of course their not that Popular if you compare during their time in 1990's. I don't think the One Direction is also Popular and their songs still recognize after 20 years laugh out loud. Backstreet Boys is a Legend and their songs in 1990's still recognize at this time laugh out loud. BACKSTREET BOYS your STILL NUMBER 1 FOREVER.
Officially the best selling boy-band of all time in history with more than 130 million album sales worldwide... They weren't hyped & promoted as much as 1D... Formed in 1993 they slogged n reached super-stardom in 1999... Songs that you would b recommended to listen:1. I want it that way,2. Everybody,3. As long as you love me,4. Shape of my heart,5. More than that,6. Get another boyfriend,7. Drowning,8. Incomplete,9. This is us,10. Helpless when she smiles,11. Straight through my heart...
[Newest]One Direction are 5 young boys. I think they are not the best in the boy bands. of course Backstreet boys and The Beatles are better. Backstreet boys are the best in the world.

6The Wanted
These guys are my life, my love and the reason behind me thinking that ill die any second when I listen to their amazing voices! Whenever I'm down I just listen to ANY of their songs or just watch any of their video and it eventually makes me the happiest person alive! And the fact that Nathan and Jay (2 of the 5 boys) THEIRSELVES WROTE a song for us, their fans! And being very honest THESE GUYS ARE THE ONLY BOYBAND WHO CARE ABOUT THEIR FAMILY MORE THAN THEIRSELVES! And no one can deny it! Their songs are just so A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! And believe me or not I cried day n night when I got to know that nathan is having a throat surgery! Literally it was like as if I was having an op not Him! And Nath's “UNEXPECTED" appearance at summertime ball was just WOW! And when my friends saw that video they were like “that boy can sing! In fact, these boys killed it maayn! I wonder y I never listened to them before" these were her words and I was just so happy and proud of my boys! And their performance at o2 arena was just MIND-BLOWING! I was so proud especially when they performed “fix you" cover. Everyone was singing along with them and each one of them were playing an instrument! It was just such a proud moment! THESE GUYS ARE MY LIFE, MY PRIDE! :D
Its not the only boy band that cares about their family more the themselves... One direction cares too... And anyways the wanted broke up because the knew they couldn't beat one direction... I'm not disrespecting them but still...
It's not only their music that's important to me. I like their personality, and their #WantedWednesday videos and The Wanted Life reality shows really make my day. They are not just another boy band to me, they are more like my brothers. They are that important. They make me feel like there will always be somebody there for me whenever I'm down, especially their song, I'll be your strength. I even cried while listening to it once. And I got so emotional and proud of Nathan that day when I saw him make his unexpected appearance in the Summertime Ball 2013 after his throat surgery. So proud of him, he can sing as well as ever! TWFanmily forever!
Honestly they are my entire life... They are so incredibly talented and handsome yet so real at the same time... They aren't afraid to swear or anything like that but at the same time they are complete gentlemen... I had the chance to meet jay tom and siva and they were so nice and polite... Siva made sure he talked to every fan before going back into the bus... They are awesome ❤️❤️💁👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌

They are four of the most beautiful, amazing, and talented boys ever. Their music is amazing and their voices and faces are just unf. You can really relate to their lyrics, which they all write together, no hired writers or anything fancy like that. They are gorgeous, and extremely talented, I think at the very least. These four boys are literally the light of my entire life, I could never live without them I love them so much.

8Jonas Brothers
The Jonas Brothers will always be my favourite boy band! The started when they were actually kids and they' ve always had something special that I liked... They were three brothers almost always wearing suits and being well-dressed and also had this rock style that I love! Not many boy bands these days are playing rock music! They were also so good role models and they became famous without having that badass attitude! Talented, cute, good manners!
This is my favorite boy band in the whole universe no matter what I will always love them all so much and don't belive this but your hereing this from a ten year old girl I love you guys I will nome you first to last firt my favorite is nick jonas then joe jonas then I still love tou but last Kevin jonas I love you all nick jonas you are my favorite absolutely I'm sad that you guys broke up and I'm glad that you are married but I have like a huge crush on nick don't tell anybody but I really do I love YOU GUYS

9Super Junior
When you are the most popular band in the most populated continent (Asia), you are obviously the most popular boy band in the world.
Definitely the most popular in the world if you count Asia
They aren't boys anymore, they are a grown up idol group. The oldest is 30 and the youngest is 24. You can't deny their powerful performance on stage. If you see their tour setlist, it won't be less than 35 songs. I'm sorry directioners, but your boys looks really awkward on stage. And... Their setlist? If I'm not mistaken they only sing 20 songs? WHY DON'T YOUR BOYS DO SOLO STAGE?

B.A. P is not just any typical Korean boy band that most non kpop fans know. Besides being talented and good looking people, their music is dynamic and meaningful. They create music that enlightens people's minds and create a new perspective or views on society. Their music not just talks about themselves but also focuses on things that are more important especially critical issues between people. They are group of young gorgeous men that has a passion for music and concern for other people. They are artists that involves themselves with social works. And as their fan, I am proud of them and I think they truly deserve to be acknowledged for the hard work that they are doing.
I love them very very very much!
B.A.P (Best. Absolute. Perfect) is a Korean Pop pretty boy band. They are very talented. They are amazing! Not to mention their looks. I love their songs, "One Shot" and "Coma". Trust me... I'm not into this kind of stuff and I am very selective in my music and B.A.P got be in the first song. I listened to their songs for 1 week straight. Just give them a chance.
B.A.P is a very strong and powerful group - in vocals, rap, dance, looks and presence onstage. They are one of the very few groups who managed to make me fall in love with talent itself, and not just looks. Way to go, B.A.P!
[Newest]B.A. P always do their best for everything, their singing, dance and live performance. And their music have many variations, you can find very strong and powerful song and you also can choose very soft or cute song from them. They are a very talent group.

135 Seconds of Summer
Well I'm in love with them and I truly think that they should be in the top 5 at least! They create their own music and play instruments and are also extremely good looking which is a bonus. they have toured with HOT CHELLE RAE and also ONE DIRECTION! All their songs are amazing and their are all truly spectacular. their songs such as 'she looks so perfect', 'don't stop', 'good girls' and so many more and indescribable. they put tons of effort and emotions in their songs like 'wherever you are' and 'beside you'. Never do they use auto tune either and are very grounded.
They are awesome I saw them in concert last year opening for One Direction they were amazing and full of so much energy they stay true to themselves and are completely amazing
They should be higher up that 17 of I'm completely honest there a truly talented group who don't use auto tuning and deserve a lot more credit for their claim to fame than they get right now.

16Boyz II Men
Hi guys. You're the best boys band ever, love yeh lots
I love them. Their songs are so GOOD
Want 2 see your summer collection 2015

Exo is a South-Korean Boy Band came from SM Entertainment. They had 8 Koreans and 4 Chinese Members. They are divided into 2 sub- groups namely EXO-K and EXO-M. For me they are the best Boy Band as of this ERA, no offense meant people. Okay? I just say that they are because they just debuted last year and they gain popularity and awards in just a matter of time. The said group are not just compose of 12 HOT, SEXY, MIND-BLOWING, and HANDSOME MEN, they are also compose of 12 SMART, TALENTED, KIND, FRIENDLY and GOD- FEARING MEN. They sang songs in different languages just like Chinese, Korean, English and even Filipino songs and I bet they are good on it, sounds angelic and they are not that obvious if they sang it even if they are Koreans and Chinese. That's why I really really love them despite of all the false news that bashers were spreading.

EXO are really talented they trained for almost 7 yrs. just to know how to dance, sing, host, and even spoke fluent language both Korean, Chinese and English. They also do their very best just to impress and pleased us in order for us to be happy. They are still kind even if they are already hurt by some people or by some saesangs.

I know for sure, EXO will shine sooner or later in time, much better in a way they sang and compose English Songs ^_^
12 angels sent from exo planet to protect tree of life and ruin our lives. Their singing will take you too another level and so will their dancing. All 12 are unique to themselves in their own quirky way. They sing in Korean. So what? They're music speaks for itself! Anyway this ot12 are so lovable, talented, cute, dorky, derpy, etc. you can't help but not love them!


They are good in looks and they have amazing talents. Each member is literally god gifted. Even though 2 members have already left they are still continuing with what ever they have. Each member cares about the fans and the fandom and also each member has a different style of showing themselves. I believe exo should have been at least 5th place.
[Newest]EXO's new album is at the top of the world wide charts, so I think they are much more popular.

Most adorable looking guys in the world and each has their own talent, making their group one of the most famous Boy gorups in the whole asia and lots of other countries too.
They are all hot and talented! Taemin and Key are really cute!
I love shine. so good in dancing

Better than one direction
Deserves to be at number 2 (Backstreet Boys at one)
Maroon five is great

22Jackson 5
The Jackson 5 are defiantly not 21 they are quite good actually. Better than one direction that's sure. I love Michael Jackson he's the best if you go on to top ten male singers I can prove it.
They are just a classic that is one of the best bands ever! Including two famous people today. Michael and Randy Jackson

I really hope they get bigger and go on tour again
Ever since I've discovered them, I can't get enough of them. Their songs are amazing - especially Superman and Everything About you - and they're funny and they are so talented and they always make time for their fans. They're just that awesome. I love them so much!
IM5 is personally like my FAVORITE boyband of all time! Their songs are different, and that's what I love about them (plus they're all super attractive...)! The first time I heard them was Disney Dudez (look it up, so funny! ), and I fell in love with their sound. I've listened to their music almost every day for a week straight, and I just love them!

47Coboy Junior
In our barangay Coboy Junior is famous, but in our country.. uhm I don't know... let's make Coboy Junior famous

E.Y.C. were made up of Trey Parker, Damon Butler and David Loeffler, they toured with Prince and Whitney Houston, had hits all over Europe with Feelin' Alright, The Way You Work It, Black Book, One More Chance, Number One & Ooh-Ah-Aa (I Feel It), later to tour with the Backstreet Boys and release an album in the US, they were one of the most charismatic and energetic boy bands around, with unique stage presence and dance performances that were matched by few.

Damon Butler was also a dancer in Michael Jackson's 'Remember The Time' video and Trey Parker (Not to be confused with the South Park bloke! ) was in the popular US show 'Newsies'.

E.Y.C. stood for 'Express Yourself Clearly'

So nice band, check them out, really every kind of music you like... best band ever, so really really good, believe me
Yeah nicest band ever, the songs are sooo perfect. Blue should be a lot bigger than they are actually. If you don't believe me, check it out, they're really amazing
Wonderful boy band. Dunno why they split


51Fall Out Boy
I love this band, in my opinion the best boy band I love all the guys they are beautiful and the greatest id love to meet them some day
These guys are getting better and better I can't wait for there new album
Very good band, they have been a band since 2001.

52Il Divo
To me, Il Divo is a special band not only because of the nationalities of each member but also due to their voices. Whenever I listen to IL Divo music, I find in it a perfect combination, a pop song in operatic style. This is a specific style of Il Divo. Sebastien Izambard - the French part of Il Divo, said that their music was like a woman, attractive, mysterious and fickle. I strongly agree with his idea. :)
Great singers, great guys <3 xx lucy

They are good role models for future bands
The best ever should be in the top ten
They are a very talented band
