They obviously have the talent, and they are prompting the same levels of hysteria we saw when the Beatles were at the height of their fame. I can see Liam becoming the new Paul McCartney and Harry the new Lennon.

They are better than the Beatles actually


and I am sure Simon will confirm as much saturday-

They are completely dreamy/ well fit and when they sing it sounds like there are about twenty singers on stage not just five- something the Beatles never acomplished

They are a bit like a Beatles / Rolling Stones hybrid.























After you have had many very special mushrooms.

Agreed.

That's the first thing I thought when General Zod put them together at bootcamp.

Don't be absurd.

They're talented boys but the Beatles? The biggest top-selling-band of all time?

No.

Don't forget the Beatles were considered as a teeny pop band in the beginning. Harry writes a lot of songs, that in time will probably be considered as classic as "Let It Be" and "She Loves You".
Yeah, yeah, yeah

They are a manufactured pop band with no demonstrated song-writing skills.

I'd love if one of the tasks on the X factor was that the contestants had to write their own song...

Either way One Direction are not the new Beatles going on what we've seen of them so far... but I think you are just windiing people up anyway

Don't even like the Beatles but your point fails

You couldn't rule out $imon saying something like that at the weekend. as some of the hype about some distinctly average performances from distinctly average performers has gone into hyperdrive this year.

I would LOVE Simon and/or Cheryl to take One Direction to the US and tout them as the "new" Beatles. I really, really would.

Op I don't mean to be rude but I don't think any of them has the talent the Beatles had no way whatsoever.
