Simon Cowell to launch American boyband

He hopes they will encourage other boy bands to audition for X Factor USA.

Music mogul Simon Cowell is reportedly planning to launch a US boyband to replicate the sound of One Direction.

The X Factor boss has said that following his star signing taking America by storm this month,he hopes they will encourage other boy bands to audition for X Factor USA.

One Direction gained an incredible fan following when they visited LA earlier this year to film an appearance on television show iCarly,and the 52-year-old is understood to be keen to do the same with homegrown talent,reported a media agency.

“One Direction are about to literally explode in America. There is even a chance their album may debut at number one when it’s released. I think that in itself will start making the point that groups can do well in these competitions,” said

Cowell.

“We put them together. I made a decision that they hadn’t quite made it or weren’t ready as solo artists,and the groups that year,I’ve got to admit,were terrible.”
