10 Bands Who Could Be the Next One Direction
It’s pretty clear that One Direction is here to stay, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have some competition! Ever since 1D exploded onto the music scene a few years ago thanks to their stint on the U.K. version of The X Factor, boy bands have been popping up all over the place.
So, to see who they’re up against, we thought we’d round up 10 bands who have the potential to reach 1D levels of fame. Check them out below! Did we miss one of your faves? Shout them out in the comments section!
5 Seconds of Summer
You might have heard of 5 Seconds of Summer thanks to their opening gig during One Direction's "Take Me Home" tour, but this Australian boy band just might eventually one-up their tour mates. The guys -- Luke Hemmings (vocals, guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar, vocals), Calum Hood (bass guitar, vocals) and Ashton Irwin (drums, vocals) -- should consider one of their biggest hits "Heartbreak Girl," as it has over 5 MILLION views on YouTube.
