Westlife voted best boyband ever
Westlife have been voted the world’s best ever boyband in an MTV competition.
MTV said that the Irish group received over 70 per cent of the final vote, easily beating the Jonas Brothers, the Backstreet Boys and the Beatles.
“Congratulations to Westlife and to all their extremely loyal fans: You have certainly proved your devotion and didn’t let up no matter how tough the competition was,” MTV said this evening.
Band member Brian McFadden left the group several years ago. Late last year, the remaining four members announced they were to go their seperate ways. They are just about to start their final tour, which is due to finish up in Dublin’s Croke Park at the end of June.
Band members Shane Filan and Mark Feehily have been tweeting their thanks to fans for supporting them in the MTV vote.
