BIOGRAPHY

One Direction are a British boy band, formed in 2010 on the UK TV talent show X Factor. The band's members (Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan) all auditioned for the show as solo members but didn't quite make the grade. However, the X Factor judges could still see potential in all of them, so asked them to return as a group, which they did. They may not have won that competition (that honour went to solo artist Matt Cardle) but they have gone on to become the most successful act from that year's show, by a long shot.
