Boy bands have been around for what seems like forever. From New Kids on the Block to Backstreet Boys to N'Sync to 98 Degrees to 5 Seconds of Summer to One Direction – there's been a few that have got the world's attention. But, as the boys get older, so do their fans. Now that One Direction is on what seems to be a very long hiatus, Hollywood is determined to find the next set of guys to take the world by storm.
Today, lots of boy bands have become popular because of television, social media, and technology. So, why not use this to our advantage in finding the next big things? Well, that is exactly what ABC and their new show Boy Band is going to aim to do.
When will Boy Band air?
The show will start airing in the summer and it is essentially a singing competition over the course of 10 episodes. It will take a certain amount of young men and put them into groups singing against each other for a spot in the coveted band. At the end of the whole thing, the boy band that is formed will get a recording contract with Hollywood Records.
Who are the Boy Band judges?
The final boy band will have five members and viewers at home will be able to vote for their favorites. So, are you ready for the next One Direction to bust onto the scene? We are! And these boys will get help from a few of the music world's finest – Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter and Emma Bunton, AKA Baby Spice from Spice Girls!
These two will serve as judges and mentors on the series. There is no word yet on whether or not there will be a third person joining the team, however, Rita Ora is set to host the show!
Get excited, because these boys are about to make summer that much hotter.
