According to wikipedia, One Direction is quite the breakout band.  They won a number of awards in 2011.  They also won everything they were nominated for.  Here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Direction#Awards_and_nominations

The Wanted also won a number of awards, but lost some too.  However, they were nominated for more awards.  It is matter of taste, of course.

I would also suggest that it is simply based upon a matter of personal opinion. Given that One Direction is younger, some older listeners may fell more drawn to The Wanted, or vice versa. Personally, I like The Wanted better.

One Direction seem to have more of an international reputation (ie we have heard of them here in NZ). If you decide that current popularity reflects success in the field of popular music, then One Direction would get my vote.

Yeah, I would have to agree. Seems like One Direction has literally blown up in the past year. I think it's more popular than the Beatles

ONE DIRECTION!! But i'm a massive fan of them so of course i'm going to pick them. I guess it's a personal opinion on which one is best. Different people have different tastes.

Personally, I am a massive One Direction fan. But I am a major TW fan too. One Direction have a completely different genre of songs as compared to The Wanted. The Wanted tend to sing songs belonging to the europop/eurodance genre whereas 1D have songs of pop/pop-rock/pop-dance. They're both equally great at what they do and I believe people shouldn't sit down and contemplate whether they like One Direction or The Wanted more. They're both composed of great people who make great music, so why not like both?

But yeah, like I said, I'm a really big 1D fan. Haha.

I've actually never heard of Wanted, but everyone's heard of One Direction. I can't say I like them, though.

You don't even need wikipedia to tell you who is better! ONE DIRECTION! The Wanted is a great band but, One Dircetion is WAY better...in my perspective! Their new album came out and I absolutely LOVE it! The first ablum "Up All Night", was fantastic and now their newer album "Take Me Home", is showing how much more mature they're getting. They are absolutely awesome! I guess you can tell I'm a Directioner...are you a Directioner? I'm definetely going to be physched if you are! :D
