1 Direction X Factor Boyband Exposed

1 Direction was created at bootcamp by the X Factor judges after each group member failed to make it to the judge’s houses. The group – Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Zain Malik – performed for the first time at Simon Cowell’s judge’s house in Spain after being together for only a matter of weeks. However, they impressed enough and made it through to the 2010 X Factor live finals.
