Top Nerdy 10: Boy Band Hits Edition

Greetings, Curious Crowd! Recently, I revisited my very first TNT and felt an instant wave of nostalgia. So to celebrate that post’s fifth anniversary, I thought it would be apropos to put together a new list featuring the same a cappella group, VoicePlay. Last year, (yep, 2019 was just last year even though it feels like it was a lifetime ago) they released a fun medley of boy band covers. Yes, technically this segment is called Top Nerdy 10 but my VoicePlay’s love for boy bands could not be contained to simply ten songs. And yes, technically there are 14 songs in the medley, but we’ll address that later. For now, enjoy all the fun wardrobe changes and epic dance moves.

Am I mad that VoicePlay completely ignored Westlife, O-Town, and soulDecision? A little bit. Am I mad at the impeccable choreo and pure enthusiasm especially from J.None? Of course not. 😉
