Just Gimme The Light: 9 Popular Boy Band Or Girl Group Members We Thought Were Going To Be The Big Solo Stars

March 19, 2013 ‐ By Clarke Gail Baines


I can’t imagine being in anybody’s group. Too many egos, too much money to be spread out, too much time spent with too many people. But the people on this list all have been in some of our favorite groups over the years, and they played their part. Smiling and waving and then eventually finding themselves going from being in the group to being out (sometimes after messy quarrels). In the end, we thought all these people should have or would have been the ones shining the most from their respective groups after parting from their band mates because of their talents, but eh…not so much. Most have still had enough success to be happy about, while others are still trying to be taken seriously as they go it alone.

    “C’mon! DeVante was fine…” you can say that 1 million times! lol but yes he was very talented. I just wish I could hear his voice more in the songs.

  • Ifuaskme2

    They even got the fact that it was DAWN who joined Lucy Pearl wrong. Good God!

  • mochadiva

    Howard Hewett to me is the most talent…..

  • Keisha Samoht

    I always thought J.C. had a foot shaped head while w/ N*sync

    lol @ Aubrey O’day! it reminded me of her reality show all about Aubrey… I wonder if I lasted for an entire season…

    I’m not clicking through the slideshow, but to THIS day I maintain that JC Chasez was the best looking/most talented member of Nsync. Justin could not touch him, he just had the better label connects and they preferred to roll the dice on him because he looked so young.

    Honestly, I see very little admirable about JT. And oh yeah, LaToya Luckett is stunning. Im not sure of her vocal capabilities, but I do think she made DC a lot more compelling. Definitely more so than the final lineup we ended up with. Her & Beyonce on stage together made it more competitive interesting.

    I didn’t know Devante could sing. Is that accurate? I know he produced most of their hits, played a lot of the instruments, and was a genius behind the scenes but umm… all I ever heard him do was talk on tracks and try to join in on some of the harmony.

  • who are these people?
