It’s easy to compare One Direction and The Wanted. Both five-man boy bands are from abroad, have hot singles, hot stars and fans who are hot for them.

But Thursday night at the MTV Video Music Awards, the two distinguished themselves from one another a bit, One Direction performing and winning an award (earning them kisses from presenter Katy Perry) and The Wanted engaging in some dirty talk on stage with Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson.

So which group of guys strikes your fancy? Is it the clean-cut One Direction (above), with their casual-cool red carpet looks (three of them in Converse sneakers) and perfectly coiffed hair? Or the more mature guys of The Wanted (below), who hit the carpet in tailored Tommy Hilfiger suits? Vote in our poll below!

I miss Nsync and Backstreet Boys. At least both of those groups put on awesome performances at award shows and just didn’t stand there on stage. The British Boy Bands need to step their game up.

The wanted showed zero personality as presenters.
