One Direction has finally confirmed that they will appear on The X Factor Australia.
The teen idols met with former Boyzone star and X Factor judge Ronan Keating in London recently and assisted him as he whittled down his last hopefuls.
Keating had to send half his groups home and put the rest through to the live shows and insiders say that the One Direction boys took a break from recording their second album to assist Ronan for his final audition stage, which was held at a venue in Camden.
One Direction has a large Australian fanbase, after performing at a series of sell out concerts in the country earlier this year. The fans will get to see their idols once again when they appear on The X Factor in autumn 2012.
