Lawson Vs Emblem3: Video-Off

It’s a big bad boyband world out there and trying to contend with the pop giants that are One Direction or The Wanted can be very hard. But today we bring you two boybands who look like they could shake things up:  We have fellow Brits and MP! favourites ‘Lawson’ and Simon Cowell’s newest recruits ‘Emblem3’. But which of these groups has what it takes to tackle today’s charts?  It’s time for a MaxiumPop! Video-off!

[column width=half last=true][/column]

[column width=half]Who: Andy, Ryan, Joel and Adam [/column]

[column width=half last=true]Wesley, Keaton and Drew [/column]

[column width=half]Song: ‘Brokenhearted’ [/column]

[column width=half last=true]’Chloe (You’re the One I Want)’ [/column]

[column width=half]Not to be confused with: Karmin ‘Brokenhearted’ [/column]

[column width=half last=true]Grease ‘You’re the One that I Want’ [/column]

[column width=half]Release Date: July 7th [/column]

[column width=half last=true]April 16th (So buy it NOW!) [/column]

[column width=half]Touring with: Lawson have just announced their 5th UK tour, the ‘Everywhere We Go’ Tour. [/column]

[column width=half last=true]Emblem3 will be supporting Selena Gomez on her ‘Stars Dance’ Tour. [/column]

[column width=half]Do they play their own instruments? As you can tell from the video, Lawson play all their own instruments and are pretty good at it too. [/column]

[column width=half last=true]Keaton isn’t too shabby with an acoustic guitar, whilst Drew and Wesley are pretty awesome on the air guitar.[/column]

[column width=half]Is there a guest rap?  Lawson have stepped away from the obvious choices like Flo Rida or Pitbull and called in B.O.B. [/column]

[column width=half last=true]No guest rap here. But does the song really need it? We don’t think so. [/column]

[column width=half]Number of Hats: 0. These guys are more about the hair than the hats. [/column]

[column width=half last=true]Emblem3 rocked an impressive 8 hats between them in this vid. [/column]

[column width=half]Is there an elephant?  Much like Alexandra Burke’s video for ‘Elephant’, there is no elephant. [/column]

[column width=half last=true]No elephant here either. Our search for a boyband music video featuring an elephant continues. [/column]

[column width=half]Dancing:  No dancing, this video is a moody break up song, a dance breakdown could be quite insensitive. [/column]

[column width=half last=true]Although there is no choreographed dance routine, Emblem3 deliver a high energy performance with lots of playful head rubbing and bouncing about. We were exhausted just looking at them. [/column]

[column width=half]Stalker rating: 4/5. Andy follows his cheating ex around the house quite like Justin Timberlake in ‘Cry Me A River’ or that serial killer in ‘Scream’. [/column]

[column width=half last=true]2/5. This video doesn’t feature too much stalking, although mailing “Chloe” badges to girls you’ve never met could be illegal in some states. [/column]

[column width=half]Would the Saturdays consider these guys ‘Gentlemen’? Yes. Lawson can rise above the bickering boyband world and have even helped out baby boyband, Union J, by offering Andy’s songwriting services for their debut album. Isn’t that sweet? [/column]

[column width=half last=true]These guys are more bad boys than gentlemen. Before they auditioned for X Factor, Emblem3 had 5 members.  Kenny played the drums and Kyle played the saxophone, before leaving to join South Park (ok, that last bit was a lie). But as the X Factor is a singing competition (despite what Louis Walsh thinks) Kenny and Kyle had to be dropped before the audition. [/column]

[column width=half]Should I download it? Yes [/column]

[column width=half last=true]Yes [/column]

Now that you have all the info you need and watched the videos it’s up to you to decide which boyband has what it takes. Does Emblem3 have the X Factor? Are Lawson a law unto themselves? The fate of the pop world is in your hands. Chose wisely. Voting closes Monday 10th at 5pm.

Results: It was a close call but Lawson just pipped Emblem3 at the post with 58.33%. We’re sure Adam, Ryan, Joel and Andy will be hitting the town to celebrate tonight. Congrats guys!
