Boy Band

Alternative, Thursdays at 8pm
Close

In “Boy Band,” undiscovered young talent from around the country battle it out to become a member of the next great music sensation. From The Beatles to The Jackson 5 to Backstreet Boys and One Direction, generations around the world have always had an insatiable thirst for boy bands. Hosted by singer Rita Ora, the 10-episode series will chronicle the journey of young male vocalists who will compete for a chance to show the world that they have what it takes to win a coveted spot in America’s next great boy band and receive a recording contract with Hollywood Records.

At the start of the season, thousands of talented singers audition for one of 18 spots in three bands and will need to impress architects Nick Carter (Backstreet Boys), Emma Bunton (Spice Girls) and super producer Timbaland in hopes of evading elimination. Once they have proven that they have what it takes to make it through the initial rounds of eliminations, the contestants will be faced with a different theme in each episode, while the architects shuffle them to find the best combination of voices to perform live for America. Architects will then critique each band’s performance and collectively determine two contestants who are up for elimination. After performing solo “survival” songs, viewers at home will vote for their favorite to remain in the competition. In the finale, America’s favorite five band members will be announced, and they will perform their brand-new single together for the first time.
