Are you ready for the world's newest boy band sensation? 

Regardless of your answer, ABC's Boy Band is making its debut in just two days, and E! News has your exclusive first look at the boys themselves. 

In the premiere episode, titled appropriately "Meet the Boys," 30 young men from all over the country (and a few other countries) will audition in front of "architects" Nick Carter, Emma Bunton, and Timbaland for the chance to join a brand new boy band. Eighteen will make it to the second round, but only five will go on to steal the hearts of America's youth as the winners of the competition.

Boy Band contestants

ABC

To meet the boys (and our commentary) before it's officially time to "Meet the Boys," start scrolling! 

Boy Band, Jaden Gray

ABC

Before: "Jaden Gray" is 100% the name of a fictional pop star in a Disney Channel movie, so this 16 year-old from California already has a leg up.

After: And now Jaden Gray is 100% the name of a boy in America's newest boy band, because wow

Boy Band, Sergio Calderon

ABC

Before: This 16 year-old from California has a cool name, a sharp suit jacket, a nice smile, and some sweet hair, so if he can sing, he might be unstoppable. 

After: He can sing in multiple languages. He's officially unstoppable. 

Boy Band, Miles Wesley

ABC

Before: Sorry Boy Band, there's no way this 19 year-old Texan isn't already in a boy band, even if they're only famous on YouTube. 

After: This boy has no money for furniture but plenty for tattoos, which is to say he's exactly what we expected him to be and he's perfect for the band. 

Boy Band, Marcus Pendleton

ABC

Before: This Nashville 16 year-old is going to need to tell us where he got that sweatshirt, because it's cool AF. 

After: "My Girl" is a surefire way to our hearts. 

Boy Band, Chance Perez

ABC

Before: This 19 year-old from Seal Beach, CA looks like he gives really good hugs. We're not basing that on anything but a gut feeling and maybe the fact that his shirt looks really cozy.

After: Not the strongest singer of the bunch, but Emma Bunton's really into him, he's got an adorable toddler, and he still looks very huggable. 

Boy Band, Michael Conor

ABC

Before: We're guessing this 17 year-old from Cleveland, OH rode to this photoshoot in a convertible to achieve that magnificent wind-blown 'do. 

After: He's a rapping violinist! We are always down for classical instruments in pop music so yes please. 

Boy Band, Andrew Bloom

ABC

Before: This 19 year-old is from Yorba Linda, CA and his name is also Andrew! This boy band could be 3/5 Andrews. How fun would that be?! 

After: This Andrew has one hell of a voice, and while he doesn't yet seem like a dancer, he could get there. 

Boy Band, Jay Gilbert

ABC

Before: A regular 14 year-old from Las Vegas, or a young time traveling Leonardo DiCaprio trying his hand at the music business? You decide!

After: Young Leo can beat box, ya'll. We need to hear him sing something other than Kanye, but any band can always use a good beat boxer probably. 

Boy Band, Brady Tutton

ABC

Before: When this 15 year-old from Shorewood, WI isn't competing to join the next great boy band, he's starring as someone's brother on a Freeform show, probably. 

After: He's actually an opera singer! We've never before contemplated opera in our pop music, but now we want it. 

Boy Band, Andrew Ramos

ABC

Before: This 19 year-old from Bronx, NY has a very cool sweater. 

After: Drew's a mama's boy with a lovely voice and excellent boy band potential. 

Boy Band, Jon Klassen

ABC

Before: That's a bold jacket choice for this 19 year-old from Greenwood, IN, and it is working. 

After: OF COURSE HE SANG WONDERWALL. 

Boy Band, Camry Jackson

ABC

Before: Cam is 19, comes from Willingboro, NJ, and if we were to cast him on a Disney Channel show, he'd be the rule-following best friend of someone kind of wacky.

After: He's got a really beautiful low tone but we also only saw him for about two seconds!

Boy Band, Dorian Tyler

ABC

Before: This 15 year-old from Memphis, TN has both a tooth gap AND hair that matches his pants, so he's already cooler than we'll ever be.

After: Dorian didn't get a ton of screen time, but he made Emma cry so he must have been good. 

Boy Band, Devin Hayes

ABC

Before: Nick Carter and Justin Timberlake's love child is 17 and from Springfield, IL.

After: Devin looks and acts the part 100%, but it kind of feels like he's this season's underdog story since he doesn't quite have the voice or the confidence. 

Boy Band, Michael Jiminez

ABC

Before: This 17 year-old from East Los Angeles has the eyebrows of a true star. 

After: Not sure about him yet, but they didn't show him enough!

Boy Band, Andrew Butcher

ABC

Before: And this 17 year-old from Greenwood, IN most likely moonlights as the misunderstood older brother on an ABC comedy. 

After: Nick said he thought Andrew belonged at a country show and we kinda agree, but not in a bad way! 

Boy Band, Gavin Becker

ABC

Before: We've got a lot of respect for a boy in a bold print, and the print on this 18 year-old from Philadelphia is seriously bold. 

After: We haven't seen much of Gavin yet, but Emma said she wanted to see more performance from him. 

Boy Band, Cameron Armstrong

ABC

Before: Cameron is 22 and from Columbia, SC, and it was really nice of him to cut the sleeves off of his shirt for us.

This 21 year-old from Liberia has a smile that could definitely melt a few hearts.

Boy Band, Lukas James

ABC

He may only be 15, but this Floridian is definitely the coolest kid in an '80s teen movie. 

Eliminated

Boy Band, Stone Martin

ABC

We're not saying this 18 year-old from Hartsville, SC has the absolute coolest name in the competition, but it's pretty hard to beat a first name like Stone.

Boy Band, Santino Cardinale

ABC

Hey girl, are you cold? 'Cuz this 18 year-old from Las Vegas has probably got enough room in his coat for two.

Jordan Grizzle is 22, he's from Fort Lauderdale, FL, and he just seems really damn happy to be here. 

Eliminated

Boy Band, Timmy Thames

This 17 year-old from Malibu, CA needs to give us some hair care tips immediately because those are some seriously luscious locks. 

Eliminated

This 17 year-old Texan will either be the bad boy or the quiet one in the band, but we can't decide which.
