Battle of the Boy Bands: One Direction vs. The Wanted

When I was growing up, everyone picked a side: Backstreet Boys or *NSYNC. Every girl fell in love with them, and would get in fights over which band is better than the other.  Once again, the boy bad invasion is back; British edition! You may have seen One Direction on ‘iCarly’ or heard The Wanted on ‘Glee’. Maybe you are even one of the lucky fans who got tickets to One Direction’s US tour, which sold out nationally in seconds. Or you are begging your parents to send you to England to see The Wanted. Either way, you probably favor one over the other!

So now to the most difficult decision of the day: what side are you on? We lined the two bands up, and gave you info on why each band is so amazing. Pick one (if you can) and vote below!
