[ JOEY ] NKOTB Reckon One Direction Will Have It Tough in America

Joey McIntyre of New Kids on the Block fame has been talking with Yahoo OMG! about the impact that British boybands One Direction and The Wanted are having overseas.

The ageing pop-star said:”The odds are against both One Direction and The Wanted — neither of them are going to work in America – it hasn’t happened in 50 years so why now?”

Joey added: “They need to go through some tough times and have a period where they learn from all their mistakes — they don’t have the chance to do that.”

NKOTB are currently prepping for another tour with the Backstreet Boys, and Howie Dorough also gave his thoughts on the current Brit invasion, saying:

“I’m not one to tell anyone what to do how to make their career happen, the hardest places to crack are the UK and USA. And for success to happen a lot of things need to go right. It was a lot of right time right place for Backstreet Boys.”
