British boy band 5Ive are hunting for a new member to replace singer Jason
'J' Brown as they gear up for a comeback.
Bing: Ryan Gosling could have been a Backstreet
The band sold more than 20 million records worldwide before their split
in 2001 after four years together. They attempted a comeback in the mid-2000s,
although a planned album never materialised, but now the band is making another
bid for chart success as part of new U.K. TV series "The Big Reunion."
Original member Brown is no longer part of the line-up, and Britain's The Sun
newspaper reports band founder Chris Herbert has advertised for a replacement
fifth member. A message reportedly posted by Herbert on Facebook reads, "Looking
for a member to join an established and extremely successful band. If you are
male ... late 20s early 30s, singer and/or rapper, great looks and swagga, inbox
me ... This could be your calling!"
