"In Real Life," another Hollywood Records band is comprised of the final five boys who received America's vote on ABC's hit show "Boy Band." In Real Life released their first single, "Eyes Closed," following their debut performance of the song on the show's final episode. "Eyes Closed" was written by Justin Tranter, Brandon Skeie, Jussi Karvinen and Wes Period, and produced by JUSSIFER. The five "Boy Band" finalists that make up In Real Life were culled from 30 original contestants, hailing from across the United States, who performed week after week for the chance to become a part of America's next great boy band. Since the show's debut on June 22, the boys have established a devoted fan following, both across social media and at the live performance shows. "Boy Band" also featured host, Rita Ora; and architects Emma Bunton, Nick Carter and Timbaland.
