J-14 is scouting out the hottest music around and this week's pick is upcoming boy band IM5!
Here are five things you need to know about IM5 who are currently in the studio working on their debut album!
Pop group IM5 consists of five teen guys from all over the US -- Cole, Dalton, Dana, Gabe, and Will. Brought together by American Idol's Simon Fuller, celeb blogger Perez Hilton, and tour producer Jamie King, this five-piece boy band is sure to make a splash in 2012.
IM5 is known for their great pop-covers on YouTube including Jessie J's "Domino", *NSYNC's "It's Gonna Be Me", and their most recent mashup of top 40 hits including "Someone Like You", "We Found Love", and more!
Not only do they sing and dance, but they also play instruments! Will started playing piano when he was only four years old and Dalton plays the guitar.
When these guys aren't making music, they're just a bunch of normal teen guys! Cole and Dana even made a special handshake that they shared on YouTube here!
Not only are these guys cute and talented, but they're also charitable! They recently performed at UCLA's Dance Marathon benefiting the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. "We had a great time, especially because we were able to help raise money for such a great cause!" IM5 says.
