Lance Bass launches search for ultimate boy band

As New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys enjoy a career comeback with a joint concert tour, *NSYNC star Lance Bass is hoping to have a hit of his own. The singer is producing a new reality show that aims to find the ultimate boy band.

"It's going to be really fun," Bass tells Vulture. "It's a really great music show, starring all your favorite boy bands."

So what's the concept?

"I got a member from Backstreet Boys, A.J. McLean. A member from *NSYNC, Joey Fatone. A member from New Kids on the Block, Joe McIntyre. And a member from New Edition, Bobby Brown," says Bass. "They're all going to form a boy band, each, from the most talented guys in America that I've scouted, and then they'll go head-to-head in a competition to see who the best band is."

In other words, the former teen idols must choose their men wisely or it's "Bye Bye Bye."

Adds Bass, "It's bragging rights for the guy in the group, for sure."

    This guy needs to disappear! was on "Dancing withe the Stars" for the wrong reasons. It was only because ABC wanted to gain a gay fan base on that show while Callie and Erica were doing that on Grey's Anatomy." Here's what ABC said, "“In general, across the network, representing the lesbian and gay community is a fantastic thing."

    Wow, that's all we need, another idiotic boy-band craze. I'll concede that with Bobby Brown attached to the show it might be an interesting trainwreck. Like when he shows up pi$$ed out of his head on booze/crack rock.
