This was a big night for The Wanted. They sang their newest single, “I Found You” live at the American Music Awards and killed it. They were also nominated in the “Favorite Band, Duo or Group” category, but lost out to Maroon 5. But even so, after that AMA performance there’s no doubt that everyone has their eyes on these guys now. In the usual fashion of award shows the guys hit up a few after parties. One of which, The US Weekly and Hollywood Agency party, they were set to perform at.
There were two other acts before the guys came on, but frankly they were memorable in the worst sense. Had there not been an open bar I would have had a serious problem. Luckily, they were short sets and by then the guys had already arrived and were standing to the side of the stage having a few beers. As a fan, when I say few I mean they had a lot and probably have been doing so all night (with the exception of Nathan and more than likely, Siva). They’re British/Irish, what do you expect? You can always guarantee a good time to be had when they’re around though, even when they’re inebriated. Okay, especially then.
So a lot of things went down at this party. One of the guys may or may have not had a full on make out sesh with a fan on stage. And by one of the guys, I mean Jay. But if you’re a part of TWFanmily you probably would have guessed that anyway. If you are so inclined you can probably find the whole debacle on YouTube. Alright, alright, you pulled my arm, I already found it here. I must give a warning though…it’s quite…intense. I don’t think anyone watching actually believed what they were seeing until they confirmed it with their shocked pal who was standing next to them. Anyway, that will be old news once they go out again and do something better. Don’t believe me? There’s a reason they’re getting their own TV show.
They sang three of their songs including: “Chasing The Sun”, “Glad You Came” and of course, “I Found You”. Even though most of them were drunk, they sounded spectacular as usual. I guess when you’re talented anything is possible. They worked the stage as always, switching sides every so often, so that they got to interact with everyone around the stage.
After the last song, they didn’t stay long as they were whisked away to probably one more party for the night. Overall, it was your typical award show after party with celebs like Mario, Taryn Manning, Kendra Wilkinson, Patti Stanger and more taking on the scene. The Wanted provided the much needed entertainment and they did so with a bang. They were there and then they weren’t. Not sure how much of it they will remember later, but their AMA nomination and performance will be unforgettable.
