Following the astonishingly good news that Westlife are to split up, we’re looking at the 20 worst pop acts of all time, starting with Brian, Thingy, Cheesy Face, Curtains and The Other One aka Westlife at 20.
17: Daphne and Celeste.
Why? Extremely subtle deconstruction of teeny bopper pop or just really, really annoying? Listen again to ‘U.G.L.Y’ and you be the judge. Vote for the worst pop acts ever.
13: One True Voice.
Why? A mess of jarring personalities and rather rubbish voices. The makers of Popstars : The Rivals said: “Oh, let’s just put them in the same vaguely beige clothes, give them a Bee Gees cover to sing and the public will lap it up!” The public said: “Oh just bog off”.
Why? They managed to make crop tops look evil. Vote for the worst pop acts ever.
Why? So blandly anonymous that they were named after a size of paper. Always looked like they were a tank top away from a presenting gig on Cbeebies. Vote for the worst pop acts ever.
6: Shayne Ward.
Why? A poor man’s…everybody. Even Simon Cowell cruelly tossed him away like an old tissue when his last album failed to excite anyone. Currently he’s sewing up several vodoo dolls of Olly Murs. Vote for the worst pop acts ever.
5: The Cheeky Girls.
Why? Their two minutes of fame just extended and extended. ‘Cheeky Song’ was followed by ‘Cheeky Holiday’ then ‘Cheeky Christmas’ and ‘Cheeky Flamenco’. We wait with baited breath for ‘Cheeky Last Ditch Attempt At Fame Through Celebrity Come Dine With Me Appearance’ and ‘Cheeky Nervous Breakdown’.
2: Black Eyed Peas.
Why? Mainly for ‘My Humps’ but obviously for stuff like ‘The Time (Dirty Bit)’ and ‘Don’t Phunk With My Heart’ too. Don’t agree? Vote for the worst pop acts in history
