It’s nice to have expectations shattered from time to time, especially when those expectations aren’t necessarily positive. Very much like Simon Cowell in this video, I was expecting a fairly formulaic performance by a cliched boy band when I saw the five guys lined up to audition. When they started singing a song from Les Miserable in beautiful strong voices I was as blown away as the audience. Not being overly familiar with the musical I did think it was some religious song at first with all the god references.

The guys seem like nice guys too and the tall one nearly crying at the end when the audience is all on their feet is very sweet to see. Any good, self respecting boy band, even the operatic good ones, has to have a gay member. Which one do you think it is?
