Simon Cowell to Create An American Boy Band?

Just Jared is reporting that Simon Cowell is in the early stages of creating an American boy band.

“Simon is really excited to form a group of guys from America. He’s done such a fine job with British boys, so he’s ready to try his hand in America. He’s looking for the right people to team up with and create their sound,” a source tells us.

Shouldn’t he wait to see how his British imports, One Direction do here in the states? Boy bands who sing and dance but don’t play instruments a la 1D haven’t been popular stateside since the days of Backstreet Boys and N’Sync. So good luck with that Simon.
