I can't stand JB, he's an immature idiot with no sense, as for my musical tastes, very little interests me these days, a couple I like are Maroon 5 & Adele, but if I had my choice I'd go back to the 70's & 80's.
To the OP, BSB were actually pretty good & their take on the song ALAYLM was very good, as a group Take That were good too, at least in my opinion they were.
Yup yup. Even the boy bands were better back in the 70's and 80's. James Taylor never needed a swagger coach. He's all about the music.
JB is all flash in the pan. He's got baby-face looks and some smooth dance moves. That's about it. His voice used to be *okay* but now that he's older it's really nothing special at all. I personally know several people who are better singers. And his song choice is nothing short of insulting. "Baby, baby, baby, oh!" That's not lyrics. That's the modern equivalent of "It's a small world after all".
Hopefully, his days in the public eye are numbered.
