5 Alive is a boy band who covered “Poison” by Bell Biv DeVoe and “Pony” by Ginuwine on America’s Got Talent. Miami-based band 5 Alive certainly got the panel’s hopes up when they arrived, with their frontman telling the America’s Got Talent judges that “With everything going on in the world today, I think what America really needs right now is a boy band.”
But it was Mel who was truly bowled over by their efforts as they delivered a sharply-choreographed medley of Bel Biv Devoe’s Poison and the Ginuwine hit Pony.
“They’re like the Backstreet Boys…I love them! Oh my God!” she shrieked, eventually leaping to her feet and applauding enthusiastically once the performance was over. Howie Mandel looked less enthusiastic, while Simon Cowell had an almost bored expression on his face for much of it.
During the band’s audition, Mel B compared them to the Backstreet Boys.
On 5 Alive’s official website, their “who we are” section reads as follows:
Was it not a simpler time when boybands roamed the earth? Or does nostalgia have a way of painting a prettier picture? Armed with cubic zirconia earrings, and frosted tips, boybands will always be a guilty pleasure. In modern, somewhat chaotic times like these, what the world needs is a new boyband … Unabashed by the stereotype with unrelenting motivation, 5 Alive provides an important first foray into the wild world of hormones. 5 Alive’s music is irresistibly catchy, unapologetic, and licensed to make you dance. 5 Alive is specifically for those that truly appreciate the pure joy that pop songs bring to millions of people around the world. Not all boybands are created equal, but 5 Alive was created to change the world, and boybands will never be the same!
The group is made up of five members – Jordan Kelly, Davie Boyd, Benny Boyd, Shannon Mirage and Garrett Howzer. Howzer is known as “the nice guy”, Mirage is “the diva”, Kelly is “the heart-throb”, Davie Boyd is “the baby face” and Benny Boyd is “the bad boy”.
