The music world was fazed this week when the hit boy band JLS confirmed that they were splitting up.
Marvin Humes, Aston Merrygold, Oriste Williams and JB Williams had been together as a band since 2008 and came second on the popular singing competition show, The X Factor.
With 4 number one singles since then, they have been very popular with the fans. They have also had 4 albums and are now recording their fifth and final album, ‘Goodbye’. They will be also going on one final tour for the farewell.
One of the main reasons for the split up of this well-known and popular band is that they are all heading in their separate directions, from new careers to starting a family.
Another reason contributing to their split up would be the popularity of newer boy bands increasing. These bands could include One Direction, The Wanted and even the girl group Little Mix.
The fans of JLS were clearly upset, as they were able to get ‘R.I.P JLS’ trending on Twitter for several hours. Fans were not able to control their feelings and started tweeting the group account wishing that the boys were not splitting up.
With JLS splitting up, there are going to be plenty of opportunities for new boy bands to come through the ranks and be loved by people all over the world. If you feel like you could be the next big boy band, why not showcase your talent on ArtRadio.tv, the new social networking website for artists.
