Let it burn! After five rounds of competition and millions and millions of votes, we finally have a winner in our Boy Band song tournament. The Jonas Brothers had to get through Hanson, Mindless Behavior, the Backstreet Boys (twice!) and finally K-pop superstars Super Junior to do it, but their “Burnin’ Up” has now been voted by you guys to be the greatest Boy-Band Song of All-Time. “Burnin’ Up” took down Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry” in the finals, by a margin of about 77,000 votes, with nearly two million votes cast total. (Super Junior have either had very good or very bad luck in our competitions: They were recently beat by Girls’ Generation in the finals of our K-pop Week song tournament!)
“Burning Up” was the Jonas Brothers’ biggest hit upon its release in 2008, peaking at #5 on the pop charts and eventually being nominated for Video of the Year at the MTV Video Music Awards. With the JoBros recently reuniting and planning for their first album in four years, their comeback is now blessed. Congratulations to them on their triumph—and to Brothers bodyguard Big Rob, whose show-stealing guest verse on the song guarantees his place in Boy-Band lore.
