Will One Direction--Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik--beat out the boys from The Wanted--Max George, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran--at the 2012 MTV VMAs in September?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, both boy bands are vying for the title of Best New Artist at the VMAs. Which one do you think stands the better chance of emerging victorious?
1D, of course, is best known for their hit single What Makes You Beautiful. They toured the U.S. singing to sold-out crowds for several weeks before heading home to start work on their second album.
The Wanted is known for their mega-hit Glad You Came. Their second hit Chasing the Sun will likely surpass it on the Billboard charts. The band's promo tour in the U.S. in January and February was deemed a huge success.
Do you think it's a toss-up as to which of these bands will win the VMA for Best New Artist? Or do you think either One Direction or The Wanted has a distinct advantage over the other?
