Zayn Malik and his band mates from One Direction are taking over the world, a vision that has become a reality for their X Factor mentor Simon Cowell.
Out of all the One Direction boys, Zayn Malik had the toughest time on the X Factor following his audition.
On the show he was not the most confident of person and although he has a very sweet voice, it was not deemed to be as strong as the other guys. As a result he was pretty much singing in the back ground all the time, which earned him the nickname ‘The Echo’.
Malik also had a run-in with X Factor boss Simon Cowell when he sneaked off not wanting to take part in the dance routines at bootcamp because he could not dance. He was then made to stand out front on stage and show the nation just how bad a dancer he was. (Not good!)
That said, look at him now. Still a bad dancer! Still singing in the background! But at least he is possibly the best looking member of the band. ( Controversial!)
