One Direction boy band member Zain Malik, has admitted that he was a bundle of nerves before he performed live on The X factor each week. He also revealed that touring around the country, has helped develop his skills as a performer and increase his confidence on stage.
Malik told The Sun that the months that followed the ITV show helped him and his bandmates – Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – to bond like brothers. He said:
“Time, and performing to thousands of people, has given me confidence. We didn’t know each other when we were at the show – we were complete strangers. Now we feel more comfortable as a group. We’re all best friends, or more like brothers.”
One direction is currently working on their debut album in the states which is set for release later in the year.
