SHOCKING! One Direction’s Zayn Malik & Louis Tomlinson without autotune! (VIDEO)

one direction 2


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?

  4. Tara on January 19, 2014 at 6:52 am

  5. Amy on January 19, 2014 at 6:55 am

    Well, Louis can’t sing anyway so…

  6. Chelz on January 19, 2014 at 7:10 am

    This is just offensive to all directioners around the world. This isn’t even funny it’s just sad to see people do this.

  7. Amy on January 19, 2014 at 7:31 am

    they don’t sing like this at all, leave them alone. this is just sad

  8. kbt1D on January 19, 2014 at 7:53 am

    well gee… whoever made this is stupid …. they shouldn’t have put “SHOCKING” …. directioners would NEVER believe this…

  9. Zoe on January 19, 2014 at 8:31 am

    This is NOT true is says it under the first video

  10. Hilary on January 19, 2014 at 8:59 am

    They obviously don’t sound like this without auto tune. They got so far in X factor because they are good without any editing. If you wanna see them without autotune go and YouTube one direction live 2013. There’s a reason they sold out 131 tour dates!

  11. Leah on January 19, 2014 at 9:29 am

    Guys who are tacking this seriously calm down I love one direction but I laughed at this and they were only jokeing soooo

  12. ema on January 19, 2014 at 12:12 pm

  13. b****please on January 19, 2014 at 12:21 pm

    Louis cant sing ? He can sing waaay better then u if he couldn’t sing then he wouldn’t be part of the most famous band ever and they won’t be selling out records performing in amazing venues just cause he cant sing get ur facts right . I would have agreed with but then we’d both be wrong

  15. Sophia on January 19, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    Why is it so shocking? And that is NOT how they sing. Leave them alone! Let them live their own life.

  16. OneDirectioner_ZaynMalik_ on January 19, 2014 at 2:10 pm

    Everyone,calm down. This is not real I saw them sing TOTALLY better than this. They were probaly having a bad day or something.One Direction, if you come across this, keep in mind that this is not true and there r alot of directioners around the world who still love you.

  20. Directioner on January 19, 2014 at 5:18 pm

    This does sound hilarious but they need to make It obvious that it’s not really what the boys sound like. It’s a great joke and cracks me up but some people are getting really confused. Harry sounds like an old man at the end hehe Xxxxxxxxxxxx

  22. OneDirectioner_ZaynMalik_ on January 19, 2014 at 5:20 pm

    lol ikr xD

  23. Lina on January 19, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    Why don’t you stop putting such misleading titles? They don’t use auto tune at all. It may be some sort of joke, but you always do this with One Direction. Your title always say one thing while the news story/article is another completely different thing that the title made seem like something much more serious or in some cases downright bad. Say it for how it is, not to just have it get more attention. It’s annoying when the title is luring and the story ends up being much less important than how it seemed. That’s leading us on. Your titles are basically lies. Stop.

  24. Lina on January 19, 2014 at 6:20 pm

    Not to mention your stories usually are lies, too.

  25. Jess on January 19, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    I don’t know why everyone says they are lying if you read the article properly then you would know they said it as a joke. We all know the boys don’t sing like that so why is everyone going overboard!! They are journalists they get the reader attention it’s called a hook paragraph to get you to read on and then it turns out to be a loaf of shit. They get paid to do it.

    Saying that I don’t agree with the fact that they used one direction why couldn’t they of used a different band! I’m a huge directioner and its not fair that they’re taking the piss out of them! Grrrrr!!!
    It sickens me that they pick on our boys because they are successful and are living there dreams

  26. Charlotte on January 19, 2014 at 7:34 pm

    This video is no where near amusing, it is insulting and ridiculous. I as a directioner am highly offended and upset by this video. I hope to god after everything that has happened in the world of twitter, that the boys never find this. In the words of Liam, “Write about things that actually matter” to the entertain world, NOT Wannabe fame seekers making a mockery of REAL artists. #LeaveOurIdolsAlone

  27. ZAYN IS PURR-FECT! on January 20, 2014 at 12:37 pm

    @OneDirectioner_Zayn Malik_, if you mean my username, then same here too… sorry, but I love zayn a loooooooottt!!!! more than imagination! I know you love him a lot too.. COME ON! we can share him 😉 Jealousy must be there between directioners.. cuz we are a family 🙂

  28. Sarah on January 22, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    Calm down girls..
    It’s funny reading comments from the “directioners”..
    1D be all forgotten about in 5 years..

  29. Charlotte on January 22, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Sarah 1D will never be forgotten

  30. Samala on January 23, 2014 at 12:28 am

    These are so good!
    And in case you didn’t know, these guys make videos (all equally hilarious) for so many other bands so 1D isn’t being singled out here. So put down your pitchforks, grab your 1D pillows, and relax.

  31. charlotte on January 23, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    Yes I did know that Samala, but it is still horribly insulting. People take the mick out of everything, but when someone with no brains, or talent take the mick out of their voices, then I get my claws out to defend them
