One Direction are one of the biggest bands in the world. They’ve had three best selling global albums, amassed millions of pounds each, won more awards than we can count and built up one of the largest and most enthusiastic fanbases the music industry has ever seen…..but how?
The lads shot to fame on the X Factor, a singing competition in the UK, and they were put together by Simon Cowell after each of the lads auditioned as a solo artist.
The music mogul listened to Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Harry Styles sing in 2010 and saw something special in each he would say. He put them together, formed a boyband, the lads finished in fourth place on the ITV show and the rest is history.
The stars have had copious vocal training and singing lessons but in the video below, where they can be heard without autotune you’ll see that all the expert in the world hasn’t helped the fab five.
It’s pretty bad! Have a listen to this.
Ok, so we were joking.
Of course One Direction sing way better than this. We LOVE the boys. But still, it was pretty amusing right?
This sort of Youtube trawling is what we’ve been reduced to since 1D started their break before Christmas.
They are certainly making the most of the time off. Harry is in Utah tonight, at the Sundance Film Festival and Louis is at home in Doncaster, where he attended a football match earlier today.
Niall is at home in London watching The Voice and it’s thought that Zayn and Niall are in the capital too. News of the boys has been VERY thin on the ground.
We like to think that the lads would have a giggle at this video too if they ever came across it. Just listen to Niall’s high pitched squeak and Zayn’s wailing. It’s all really a bit genius right?
In fact it’s so giggle inducing that we’re going to listen another. Wanna join us?
