What do One Direction Fans Think of The Jonas Brothers? We Asked.

The Great Boy Band War of '99 to '01 ended when Justin Timberlake ascended to solo pop stardom. Though the time of peace lasted from some years, the last few years have seen the rise of a new generation of boy bands, with two groups in particular who have once again captured the hearts and minds of America's youth: The Jonas Brothers and One Direction. Coincidentally, both played Dallas in the last few weeks.

We sent a reporter to the front of the battle to ask the fans of One Direction what they thought of The Jonas Brothers. We also sent him to The Jonas Brothers, to ask about One Direction -- you can see the results here.
