There’s no denying that the pop music scene of today is overcrowded with boybands. Ever since the 1990s, when artists such as Westlife, Boyzone and Take That dominated the charts and left girls swooning in their thousands, music moguls have continuously battled to find the next big boyband.
In such a highly-populated market, what makes one group of boys stand out from the next? Is it their vocals? Their looks? Their dancing? We have the answers! Take a look at our list of what every boyband needs to be at the top of their game!
1. An Irish Member
Now, we know what you’re thinking: Niall Horan. Well, he’s unsurprisingly, not the only Irish person to be in a famous/once-famous boyband. There’s Siva Kaneswaran from The Wanted (above far right), The X Factor‘s Stereo Kicks has Irish Chris Leonard and lest we forget, the members of Westlife and Boyzone were ALL Irish. Given how popular these bands have become, we definitely think ‘The Irish One’ is a necessary piece of every boyband puzzle!
