Everyone’s heard of this new boy band One Direction right? Well, this is just a little article to give a little more information about these five singing pop stars.
The boys sang ‘Torn’ by Natalie Imbruglia at their mentor, Simon Cowell’s house. Once again, the boys made it through. Each week, the boys made a video diary for the X-Factor website. Jokes for their fans such as ‘”No!” Jimmy protested!”, “Kevin the pigeon”, and ‘”I like girls who… eat carrots!”’ came up in these videos.
After making it through many weeks of live shows, the boys were voted off in third place on December 12th. The boys were signed by Simon Cowell, or as the boys call him, “Uncle Simon” to SYCO RECORDS.
In September, a little less than a year later, the boys came out with their single What Makes You Beautiful which sky rocketed to #1 on the pop singles chart. “Directioners” –which is what their fans are called- were ecstatic and couldn’t wait for the album to be released.
Then two months later,on November 21st 2011, their album titled ‘Up All Night’ was released. The boys became more and more popular.
In December 2011, the boys announced that they were going on tour. Starting with Europe, then going to Australia in February, and ending in North America in April. The boys performed their songs “Na NaNa”, “Stand Up”, “I Wish”, “Moments”, “Gotta Be You”, “More Than This”, “Up All Night”, “Tell Me A Lie”, “Everything About You”, “”One Thing”, “Save You Tonight”, “What Makes You Beautiful”, and “I Want.” Followed by covers of the songs, “I Gotta Feeling”,
“Stereo Hearts”, “Valerie”, and “Torn”. The tour ended in July 2012.
