Most of us watching Boy Band started out watching because of our familiarity with the architects – Timbaland, Emma Bunton and, of course, our Nick Carter.
As weeks rolled on though, a lot of us became invested in the performances, the boys, and who would ultimately form the perfect boyband – landing a record deal and a lot of exposure.
The time has come for the semi finals and with only two episodes left, we want to remind you a little bit about the eight boys who are left standing, five of which will be members of the next great boyband!
