An *NSYNC-style five-piece boy band out of the Netherlands, B-Brave found fame by appearing on the fifth season of their country's edition of the TV talent competition The X Factor. Sharing a background in musical theater, teens Dioni Jurado-Gomez, Samuel Leijten, Cassius Verbond, Kaj van der Voort, and Jai Wowor formed the group to audition for The X Factor in 2013, and they eventually finished third. Within a month of the show's finale, they signed a record deal with Sony Music Entertainment. Their first album, De Eerste Date, was released in the fall of 2014 and reached number two on the Dutch albums chart. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
