With One Direction on an indefinite hiatus, America needs a new boy band right now. Like, really badly and America's Got Talent may have just found one.
The actual episode airs tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC and the boys are about to shut the place down. Dubbing themselves '5 Alive' they belt out their own rendition of Bell Biv Devoe’s "Poison" and then smoothly transition into Ginuwine’s "Pony." From what we can see during the leaked video, these guys are the total package. They are cute, they can sing AND they can dance – something 1D never really got a handle on.
The boys dressed in all white for their audition and brought back some serious Backstreet Boys and N'Sync vibes.
It seems like Mel B, Howie Mandel, and Heidi Klum are really into the performance, especially Mel B. But, Simon Cowell, who is obviously known for helping create some of the biggest bands in the world like One Direction and Fifth Harmony, doesn't look like he's too amused. We're not totally sure why and because this is just a leaked clip, viewers will have to watch tonight to see what Simon really thinks.
To be honest, you'd think this is something he would like. They have everything. The only thing we can think of is that maybe their performance was a bit risque for Simon's liking. 1D would have never sung a cover like that. But, hey, who knows.
So...who really IS 5 Alive? Because we want to get to know them TBH, even if Simon doesn't.
