The Osmonds

The Osmonds

The Osmonds were a rival act to the Jackson 5 with Donny Osmond mirroring Michael Jackson's role as the young and talented centrepiece in a family quintet.

The Osmonds first appeared on the TV when they were invited on The Andy Williams Show. All of a sudden family-pop became cool and the Osmonds became extremely successful along with the likes of the Jackson 5 and the fictional Partridge Family.

Following the demise of The Andy Williams Show, the Osmonds got a regular spot on The Jerry Lewis Show where they stayed until 1969.

Some of their greatest hits included "One Bad Apple", "Double Lovin'" and "Down by the Lazy River".

Donny Osmond later went solo and later still teamed up with his sister Marie to produce the TV show "Donny and Marie".

    I can remember being in love with The Osmonds. Donny was always my favourite. Puppy Love one of the best songs ever. The Osmonds had loads of number one hits but the most famous is Crazy Horses.I saw them again at their reunion concert in London in May this year (2008). It brought back lots of happy teenage memories
