This is that story of Harry, Zayn, Liam, Louis and Niall, who all auditioned as individual competitors for The X Factor in 2010 and fromed the band One Direction - AKA 1D - under the guidance of the British televidion show. Thanks to talent, hard work, social media, and the popularity of the show and its live tour, this British-Irish boy band has proved that they have what it takes to reach the top of the charts. The X Factor was in its seventh season when the UK's newest pop icons first appeared on screen.
From five young guys who didn't know each other, One Direction quickly established themselves as an up-and-coming band andnow has an impressive devoted fas base of Directioners, a #1 debut single, What Makes You Beautiful, and the debut album Up All Night, which started at #2 on the UK Albums Chart and become the fastestselling debut album of 2011 in the UK.
