#PXYSJ Spotlight: In Real Life

"In Real Life is the only boy band in history voted together by America. “This is something we’ve all been dreaming of for years,” says Sergio Calderon, one of the five young men culled from many hopefuls on ABC’s competition series Boy Band. “This” is, of course, the spotlight focused on previously unknown talents Sergio, Michael Conor, Chance Perez, Drew Ramos and Brady Tutton — already familiar to viewers of that show, and now poised for greater stardom as In Real Life.

All the members of In Real Life cite the encouragement and advice offered by Boy Band’s host, singer Rita Ora and architects — Timbaland, Nick Carter and Emma Bunton, super producer and respective alumni of the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls — during the show’s vigorous selection process, which initially put 18 finalists in various assortments in search of the ideal group. “They’ve had a real impact on our lives,” says Chance. “I remember that Nick told us never to lose our hunger or become complacent, because we should always want to be better.”"
