Former New Kid on the Block takes aim at current crop of boy bands

New Kids on the Block leader Jordan Knight isn’t shy about stating his opinion when it comes to the new crop of boy bands out there – including One Direction.His main issue? They have two left feet.
“They don’t dance,” the 44-year-old singer laments. “I just don’t get it. To put on a really good show there has to be some kind of cool choreography.”
When we mention that we’ve seen 1D in concert (before you cringe, children were present), and that they seemingly substitute their lack of dance prowess with a time-filling couch banter segment in the middle of the show (seriously), chatting about their favourite hobbies and things to eat, he takes it one step further.
“I think these groups are getting hit records first because they are coming off these hot TV shows and then they have to get a stage act together,” Knight retorts. “By then it’s kind of too late. Then they just end up on stage just singing their songs and not really knowing the art of putting on a show.”
