Today's Star Brought to you by Key Hyundai
It's not a strange thing to have thousands of girls going crazy over an all-male English band. We’re all familiar with the craze surrounding The Beatles in the 1960’s and 1970’s, and many bands wouldn’t be where they are today without those legendary musicians. Now there is a new British import causing a worldwide frenzy: One Direction. They are nowhere near the magnitude of The Beatles, but there are some similarities between the two bands. The most notable likenesses being the ability to make girls scream, go crazy, and throw items of clothing onto the stage.
Hailing from England, the five member boy band group was formed by the famous music producer Simon Cowell. They each separately tried out for XFactor UK and when they all got eliminated, it was Simon’s idea to group them all together and have them continue the competition. This is how One Direction was formed. They finished third in the competition, but I think its safe to say they are the real winners. The band started blowing up everywhere on social media, as their fan base spread like wildfire. They recorded their first album under Simon Cowell’s label. “What Makes You Beautiful” is the song that solidified them as a heartthrob inducing boy band sensation.
They’ve released two more albums. “Story of My Life” is their latest single and their popularity is still at an all time high. They tour very often and people go absolutely crazy over their live shows. If you have a chance, look up some of the signs people, mostly girls, make for the shows. They are both hilarious and cringe-worthy.
Perhaps this group could be the one that breaks the “boy band” curse. They all seem to really like each other as friends and if there is anything Simon Cowell can do, it’s make these guys stay around for a very long time.
