Biography


Many auditions for boy/girl bands turned up ill-fated, only a few survived and The Wanted are one of them. In 2009, Jayne Collins held a mass audition because she wanted to form a boyband after successfully launching The Saturdays and Parade. Upon selection, Collins picked Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes out of the thousands.

Straight away they worked on their debut album before nailing the perfect name for the band. On how they eventually landed the moniker, Nathan said in an interview, "Basically what happened was we just finished a track which is going to be on the album and itís based on the Wild West theme, like The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. And now we have made some wanted posters, like mug shots for ourselves."
