British boy band JLS is currently hitting the US charts with “Everybody in Love” and are readying their debut album on Jive records. The group who placed second on Britain’s The X Factor show just released their latest video “The Club is Alive” and it looks like the record company is doing a big push in the hopes that this band will be the next Nsync or Backstreet Boys. However, I beg to differ. They kind of seem like a funkier second-rate Boyz II Men with processed vocals. They’re kinda like 4 Jason Derulo’s put together. Take a look at their new video and tell me if you think they’re the beginning of a new boy band revolution or a flash in the pan.

And compare it to the gold standard of boy bands….
