Katy Perry bigs up One Direction’s Niall Horan on X Factor 2013 results show!


Katy Perry made an appearance on the X Factor tonight and she couldn’t let the occasion pass without giving Niall Horan a little shout out.

The ‘Fireworks’ singer was performing her hit single Roar on the ITV results show this evening and afterwards she spoke about the time when she acted as a guest judge on the panel.

Katy sat in for Cheryl Cole in 2010 and when the auditions hit Dublin she saw a cute little Irish boy named Niall, who she was keen to put through to bootcamp.

The teenage singer went on to become one fifth of the biggest boyband in the world, One Direction.

Katy was asked if she would ever like to return to the panel and confessed:


“I like that I let Niall through at one point, he is pretty cute. He is in a little band called One Direction.”

However we don’t think she’ll become a permanent judge any time soon as she added:

“I would love to give constructive criticism. I know that you guys [the judges] try your best to give constructive criticism, because it’s actually really hard up there when you become an artist.”

Niall will be glad that his name was dropped this evening, because he has a bit of a thing for Ms Perry!

“Katy’s super-hot. And she’s really cool as well,” he told Now last year.

“I think she feels a little bit of ownership over me because she was the one to put me through on The X Factor when she was a guest judge.”

The pair shared a bit of a kiss when Katy presented On Direction with an MTV award and Horan revealed that things got even more heated between them when they met later in the Green Room.

“She was the first person to say hi backstage,” Niall explained. “The first thing I saw was her with her lips out. I just went straight for her lips.”

Niall has gone on to great things thanks to Katy’s belief in him and he is currently performing his way around Australia, as part of 1D’s Take Me Home sold out world tour.
