Anybody up for a boy band from England? The latest and greatest is “[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]One Direction[/lastfm],” and the way they came to be is as interesting as their music. The five members were all solo competitors on the show “X Factor.” None of them did very well, so judge [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicole Scherzinger[/lastfm] told them they should perform together as a group. They proceeded to come in third on the 7th series of the show, and it wasn’t long before their music was being leaked via the internet.
Their album “Up All Night” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, making them the first U.K. group to ever debut at #1 with their first album in the U.S. Their current song, “What Makes You Beautiful,” is climbing the charts as we speak. The boys will tour North America in the Summer of 2013.
