NEW BOY BAND ALERT! British Group The Wanted Takes America By Storm

The OG Boy Band: NKOTB
New Kids On The Block...'nough said.
Well, new to me anyway.  

The Wanted- comprised of Max George, Tom Parker, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes- is trekking along on their US tour, making many tweens panties drop fall in love with them where ever they perform.  The group gained American recognition as the opening act for Justin Beiber and also Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale tour, afterwards, signing with the Beibs’ manager Scooter Braun and achieving American fame ever since.  What do the boys have to say about the positive reception Stateside? George stated,  “The States is one territory in the world we always wanted to crack, and that’s like the ultimate. It’s been amazing.”  Aww, how adorable!

I honestly thought that boy bands had died once N’Sync broke up but apparently the UK is still churning them out like butter.  Who knows, maybe this will start a new wave of boy band hysteria that was felt all over the world (or it felt like it) in the late 90’s.  The guys are promoting their new single, Glad You Came from their new album Battleground. Their U.S. tour will wrap up on February 8 in Los Angeles before they kick off an arena tour on February 15 in England.

The Wanted was seen on the red carpet posing for pictures at the WIOQ’s iHeart Performance Studio in Bala Cynwyd, PA on January 24, 2012. Wow. Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. They’re really hitting every nook and cranny in America, it seems. Such cutie-patooties!
