Battle of the Boy Bands

The boy(s) that stole our hearts from the last decade or so.
The best part of growing up in the 90s is the music that was produced during that era. Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Brian McKnight are some of my favorite solos. Apart from those the soulful artists there are the boy bands that stole my heart. I used to sing-a-long to their songs whenever they come up on the radio. On my free time, my sisters and I would try to learn their dance choreography. Fast forward to 2015, boy bands are still popular (at least among the teens).
However, which boy band would actually stand the test of time?

New Kids On The Block

They've been active since the late 80s. Currently, they're still singing, dancing and throwing concerts. Right on!

N'Sync

They rivals of BSB. They would have been more popular if the group stuck together. Nonetheless, N'Sync is still one of the best boy bands out there.

Backstreet Boys

Most popular 90s boy band. People (like myself) are still listening to their classics. Needless to say they're an oldie but goodie

The Jonas Brothers

A boy band made of real bros. Seriously how cool is that? In addition, they write and compose most of their songs. It's unfortunate the boys grew up and decided to pursue their own activities.

One Direction

The pretty boys of today's generation. I honestly only know one song from these guys "What Makes You Beautiful" and but I have a feeling they'll be forgotten in a decade.

Westlife

The group that never fails to deliver emotional and touching songs. Their hit singles are still popular today and I can assure you that everyone knows at least one Westlife anthem.

BBMak

The underrated trio. I actually first heard of them through Disney Chanel but other than that I haven't seen them around. They have the potential but I have no idea where they went after releasing "Back Here" (shown above).

98 Degree

You can think of them as the four guy band serenading mainly love songs. They have several hits but in 2003 they group decided to take a break and focus on their solo activities. They haven't make a comeback since then.

The winner(s):

Backstreet Boys & New Kids On The Block
As seen from the video above the popular 80s/90s boy band still handle to make the crowd go crazy. Yes, they might be old but they're still grooving!
What do yo think?

Jonas Brothers Reunion? It's Possible.
We won't have to wait for the year 3000 for these brothers to make a comeback! Joe Jonas has recently revealed in an interview with PrideSource that the Jonas Brothers may have a reunion sometime in the near future. While his brother Nick tours with his hit singles "Jealous" and "Levels", his other brother Kevin is enjoying the married life out of the spotlight. However, it seems like Joe is completely open to heading back to the studio to make some new music. "It's easy to say we're done and that we're never doing it again, but then we both look at each other and go, 'We obviously get along,'" Joe revealed. "And who knows -- years from now we could be like, 'All right, let's make a record.'" When Joe was asked as to whether the band will likely reunite, he responded, "It could easily happen." S.O.S people, the Joe Bros are hopefully reuniting! THIS IS HUGE! It does seem appropriate though that the brothers are contemplating a return since it's been a few years since they parted in 2013. Though Joe said time has healed the reason for their split back in the day, it's really too bad they never got to go on their tour that they cancelled two days before it was set to begin. For now, the brothers are just biding time until they feel like it's time to make a comeback. "Nick and I have a few ideas to work with other artists who we really like," Joe says. "There are a couple of artists out there that we think are really incredible that we'd like to work together with. … There could be something that comes along our way that we might say, 'You know, let's try working on this song together.'" However he's still hesitant in trying not to repeat their past troubles. "Being in the situation that my brothers and I were in for so many years… you're a bit worried or nervous that you might say or do something that could set off fireworks." But all is well and Joe is looking for a hopeful reunion, " I definitely really don't let anything hold me back these days." How would you feel about a Jonas Brother's Reunion?
The Top #3 Pop Singles Of The Week
Hello. Perfect. Sorry. This week, three major pop icons released new music videos with their current number one hits. They are completely different from one another but amazing in their own right. Obviously most of the publicity has been garnered by Adele since this is her first debut in just under 5 years. One Direction had the limelight last week and Justin Bieber's current single has been slightly out-shined but he dominated the media last month with "What Do You Mean". Which hit this week is your favorite? Sorry Why is this a fun tune? : It's very aux-cord worthy and you can totally see yourself dancing to this in the bar. It's catchy and very similar to previous songs debuted within his album. Bieber is back and stronger than ever. Maybe he's finally becoming a mature pop star and I think fans are starting to love that. Who is this song about? : Selena Gomez, duh. Pretty much this entire album is an ode to her and their previous relationship. It's not completely obvious since he doesn't personally interject anything too flashy but it was his longest and most public relationship so it has to stand for something. Should you hit the repeat button? : YES. Hello Why is this so gorgeous? : It's haunting. It's stunning. It's heart-breaking. The lovely tune turns the tables where it's actually Adele who broke someone else's heart. Recently many pop stars are no longer talking about heart break but more about apologizing, breaking other people's hearts, and learning to move on. However, Adele does it better than anyone else. Who is this song about? : Not quite sure. She's in a happy place right now but it's a single that is a bipolar opposite of what you would have found in her album 21. She's sorry and she's going to sing her beautiful tune about it. Should you hit the repeat button? : YES OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Perfect Why is this song so clever? : It is an identical copy of Swift's "Style". If Taylor Swift is going to get away with writing a song about one of her ex-lovers, there's no reason why one of her ex-lovers can't write a song about her. There are many hints throughout the video that nod towards Swift and it's genius. If you play 'Style' and 'Perfect' overtop one another, you'll notice that they are practically indistinguishable. Who is this song about? : Taylor Swift, DUH. Should you hit the repeat button? : Yes, of course.
Would You Rather: Fruit Vs. One Direction?
It's time for the Funny Community's 'Would You Rather?' game! At the end of every week, I ask you guys to decide between two very strange things. Last week, I asked you to choose between being BALD or COMPLETELY HAIRY. Out of 49 votes, the winner was... BALD with 32 votes! This week, I want to know: If you had to choose between being sexually attracted to FRUIT or ONE DIRECTION, which one would you pick? If you're dirty-talking every ripe pineapple you see, people are probably going to be a little confused by you. But if you couldn't contain yourself every time you saw a picture of Harry Styles, that might be a little weird too. Which one would YOU pick? Comment below with your answer, debate among your Vingle friends, and I'll share the results next week! @malibella @Jonathan3 @EvaEt @Jaileejailee @WiviDemol @JunieRose @JessicaChaney @ButterflyBlu @OGPanda @GinTenma @JaxomB @BeckyNewman @TerrecaRiley @MengNoZhang @VixenViVi @DannyMoses @ChosenKnight @AnnaArai @GreyStorm84 @Kuramariin @AshelyJewell @Animefoxgirl97 @deilig @chris98vamg @kimleekwonshin @shantalcamara @KpopLuver13 @Astrohelix @NerukaWong @reesesrisa @BluBear07 @SarahVanDorn @Danse @InPlainSight @matildajgarrett @JPBenedetto @MissB82 @SiobhanMartin @LAVONYORK @Jolzz @KellyOConnor @Luci546 @Kaidra @buddyesd @SarahRoot @cthulu @EmilianoMacias @Aripendragon @DipDopOfTheDip @Beccachu @supbroscene @AndreaFuller @React10K1ng @punkpandabear @Karthikkrazzy1 @JessicaPeters @EstefanOlivares @LenaBlackRose @peahyr @MelissaMae @BlackDragon88 @Showta365 @humairaa @petname83 @destiny1419 @drummergirl691 @Fledgling @SheannaWilliams @addri @Mysticinumiko @jazminramirez9 @IAmSasha @MajahnNelson @BlackXShield @LaceChic1 @Melodicballoon @FlyingAway @shellyfuentes70 @TheDumDumTroll @MissT615 @in4mtoxic006 @animerg13 @AlisonGrace @DavidPap @Emmeronsage @Vega1240 @ZombieDragon @LittleHorn @Meeshell @HeatherWright @kawaiiporpoise @MarvelTrashcan @DenieceSuit @ShinigamiSan @EasternShell @BT2581 @AnneH @KarleyFrance @DaiGakuSei @reyestiny93 @AnimeLove300 @Jarod @justme29 @ShatrdGalaxies @Vocaloid @JamiMilsap @DorianBell @PeteTehCat @MaggieCokeley @clobbersaurus @gabbycalzada @JessicaFerrier @brandontearss @m3179035411 @TheSuperior @Beeplzzz @Romana @sbeh @AnasiaLaureano @ChrisLyons @dimplequeen @ssjleek @classydownhillr @ultimatefangurl @KaylaJZ @MzDawson31508 @LiliRamos @Xiuyeolhyun @carmaa10 @Sara3 @MoisEsGaray @Alletaire @dropuentex @hhead232 @thiree @nberry1620 @atmi @KennedyCasey @TiffanyWallace @PassTheSuga @arnelli @FalseLove @jmartinez230304 @kneelb4zod @Baoyi @a514girl98 @DwaynGrant @mymi @ChienWeiHuang @KennyMcCormick @Captpeter @DianaBell @Zara0uk @seika469 @TBird @jlee37 @Animaniafreak @ThyaremyCreator @fatimajj23 @MichaeOgg @jonathan11 @BatataKnight @Ritu @culversyanne @LadyLuna @SarahRegulski @LiviBelle @TinaDang @NicoleFireRose @Jinnyrod3 @amobigbang @ultraninja10 @Rezorox @MooshieBay @AustinThurston @melineptune @RobertoPadron @MichelleRosa @evelynrodriguez @NickMcCormick @NancySilveira @FromBlue2U @RavenWilde @obiterdictum @JtacoGuzman @Animetenshizo @AlyssaGelet818 @AlexixKnight @AshleyanAlicea @LissiMichelle @rik40 @HappyLulie @dethntaxes @lilmike316 @ceilphantomhive @turbidmocha @zachburbano @SantaraJones @Hatake26 @MrsBangYongguk @lalaMF @Lizzeh @BanalataBera @AidanGiannattas @PiplupBlue @Steeldrago @P1B2Bear @MorghanPorter @JrGrimes @Amirnator @kartikab29 @Gracielou0717 @MarilynScott @ChampionShynia @KayyeAyyeeMCeef @otakukpoper @HandsomeBacon @GlitchTheRipper @isssc1100 @VanessaSimmons @MasonBurt @mkrbwaltz @ErikFrausto @coolshyguy20 @TambryInskeep @SrikarTangudu @SamIAm8605 @jla23 @adidarma92 @AndersonTapia @Nueoc @LorettaHon @reaper412
