Justin Bieber may be the undisputed champion when it comes to solo teen heartthrob but when it comes to boy bands, the battle is currently being fought between One Direction and The Wanted. Both One Direction and The Wanted are British boy bands composed of five guys. Both have made it big overseas with hit songs, One Direction with “What Makes You Beautiful” and The Wanted with “Glad You Came.”
Both want to work with Justin Bieber. The “Boyfriend” singer is reportedly trying to decide which band to work with for the Summer Olympics in London. He has experience and has enjoyed spending time with both bands. He toured with The Wanted for several dates last year while he recently invited One Direction to listen to some of his tracks in the studio.
Even though The Wanted are probably hoping feverishly that they get picked, they’re playing it cool. When a paparazzo caught up with the band and asked whether they should be picked over One Direction, member Jay McGuiness replied with a very diplomatic answer. “He’ll know to make the right choice which I don’t know what that is. He’s wiser than we are!” he said.
Perhaps the Biebs will choose to work with both. Now that would be the ultimate dream come true for teenage girls everywhere.
