In a E! Upcoming Special, Entertainment news will release a special which depicts which ranks the biggest boy bands that have made an impact on the U.S. charts in the past 20 years. The TV special premieres July 24, 2012, at 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific Time. The special will include brief interview clips with the members of the marvelous One Direction.
According to E!, here are two quotes from the special:
“We were in Ireland, there was a girl by the bus and we waved at her and she fainted.” – Zayn Malik, One Direction
“We left Radio City and there were hundreds of girls running after the bus through traffic.” – Niall Horan, One Direction
The other boy bands that are depicted in the countdown include ‘N Sync, New Edition, Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees, Color Me Badd, LFO, Boyz II Men and The Wanted.
Boy bands typically have a fan base that is mostly female, but Niall Horan says he would like One Direction to have some more male fans. Niall told a Tumblr blog recently, “We want to see more boy fans, as seeing them in the crowd is cool. It’s 90 per cent girls, but we want to expand our fan base. We want different people to like us.”
We’re sure they’ll start coming out of the Directioner closet soon babe!
