British boy band One Direction won three coveted Moonman awards Thursday night at the MTV VMAs including the award for "Best New Artist." As we told you just the other day, the VMAs have not always accurately predicted who will really be the next big thing, often opting for one-hit-wonders and snubbing artists with real staying power.

One Direction was up against Carly Rae Jepsen, Frank Ocean, Fun. f/Janelle Monae and The Wanted this time around, so do you think they deserved to win? Will they be the the next big pop band?

MTV.COM reports:
One Direction go home three for three at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards with a Best New Artist win.

    Wow, you fail at life .__.

    I, DP, am marking this as the day that music has officially died. NSYNC danced and sang, but these boys just sing songs written by others. They hardly even have input in what they sing about. It's a sad fact, but mainstream music has gone down the drain. The only salvation we have is, sorry to say this, the hipsters. Their obscure bands may be pretentious, but they have more substance than these boys singing songs written by some money-hungry fat man while wriggling around awkwardly, the girls distracted by their pretty prepubescent twink faces and "swag".

    Sorry, but this is a sad day for music-anity.

    Guys .. they ARE whether you like it or not /:
  • DP Say_wut... 2012/09/08 20:50:52
    Um, no they aren't. They only sing songs. They don't even dance or play their own instruments.
  • pig soda DP 2012/09/08 21:11:08
    pig soda
    Niall and liam play the guitar and you yanks didn't even watch the uk xfactor so how would you know whether they can dance or not. Fyi they can.
  • DP pig soda 2012/09/08 21:18:05
    Hahahahahaahahahahaha! Phew, you think that yank is an insult? Sorry, but we won that war!!!!!!!! Anywho, no they don't play instruments on their songs, so please, don't. Using your logic, you can't say anything about "yank" artists over here because you didn't "watch" them.
  • Say_wut... DP 2012/09/08 22:45:15
    Yes they are, have you seen how many fans they have?
  • DP Say_wut... 2012/09/08 22:45:45
    So what? Charles Manson had fans, did he not?
  • Say_wut... DP 2012/09/08 22:48:49
    Hmm that's a little different when he only has about 10 thousand likes on fb but 1D has almost 10 millions...
  • DP Say_wut... 2012/09/09 17:33:07
    The dumbest logic I have ever heard in a few days on here. Please, tell me that you have better logic than that!
  • Say_wut... DP 2012/09/09 17:36:16
    All I'm saying is that 1D has a lot more fans than 'Charles Manson' and if you would actually take the time and realize just how many fans they have you would maybe change your mind
  • DP Say_wut... 2012/09/09 17:39:01
    No, I'm not going to change my mind. I like tons of facebook pages, but don't actually like any of the stuff. Fans does not translate into talent. If that's what you think, then wake up call because it's not true. 12 year old girls are easily brainwashed by the media machine.
  • Say_wut... DP 2012/09/09 17:47:11
    Yeah so ? There are still millions of teenage girls that love them and after this there'll probably be a lot more
  • DP Say_wut... 2012/09/11 19:23:49 (edited)
    You forgot a few words: brain dead and idiotic teenage girls.
  • Say_wut... DP 2012/09/11 19:24:54
    Still fans?...Doesn't matter who they are
  • DP Say_wut... 2012/09/11 19:29:29
    Sorry, but it does. I see that I'm getting nowhere here, since you still believe that One Erec-direction is god's gift to mankind. I hope you become musically enlightened one day.

  • Say_wut... DP 2012/09/11 19:39:36
    I'm sorry what? Did I EVER say that I was a fan of 1D?....
  • ranishma DP 2012/09/10 06:06:08
    hey people, if you guyz dont wanna hear that, please why dont you tune in to the South Pacific Ocean, Fijian music is so much the best.... come over to Fiji & try to experience the difference.... cheeers to the world....
  • DP ranishma 2012/09/11 19:21:53
    Lol, okay?
  • shadowedbydarkness 2012/09/08 20:39:46

    They're no Nsync. Boy groups never last especially in this generation, I can see them breaking up soon. Wish them all the luck.
