Currently on “hiatus”, One Direction was once comprised of Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and future Oscar-nominated actor Harry Styles.
The boyband was famously formed on the X Factor UK after auditioning as solo artists. Their Judges Houses performance of Natalie Imbruglia's Torn remains their best performance to date. In 2015, after the departure of the artist formally known as Zayn Malik, the boys released one more album (Made In The AM) before going their separate ways. Life has never been the same since.
Fun fact: The band has an unofficial tour mascot called Rainbow Bondage Bear. And yeah, it is exactly what you think it is.
