Blue are a British boy band, there are four members, Simon Webbe, Lee Ryan, Duncan James and Antony Costa.
The group formed in 2001, and split in 2005. In April 2009 the group reunited and a "Best of Blue" tour was announced.
Blue was announced to be reuniting as a band on 29th January 2011 and to represent the United Kingdom in the Eurovision song contest in Germany with their entry "I can."
Blue to represent United Kingdom in Eurovision
This shows that boy bands are still around today, and making comebacks, therefore this is a good time for us to re-release the Backstreet Boys track we have chosen.
However it has not all been positive press about them representing the United Kingdom in Eurovision.

It has been argued that Blue must win the Eurovision song contest or their reputation will be in "tatters." They will be strong favourites but may not win it.
In November 2010, three boy bands were at the top, with Take That, JLS and Westlife all being in the top three in the UK music charts.
This shows that boy bands do still have a big impact on the country, and still have a strong audience.
