One Direction (2010-present)
One Direction are a British boyband who appeared in the 2010 series of talent show 'The X Factor'. The band members are Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.
Formation: Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik auditioned as solo singers in the seventh series of 'The X Factor'. They failed to make it through to live shows individually, and so were put together as One Direction by the judges. While they finished third, they signed to Simon Cowell's Syco Records.
Career: One Direction topped the UK charts with their debut single 'What Makes You Beautiful' in 2011 and subsequently signed with America's Columbia Records. They supported Big Time Rush during their first tour of the US, and their 2012 album 'Up All Night' became the first British group to top US charts with a debut album. During that year, they went through a courtcase (which they subsequently won) after being sued for having the same name as another band in the US.
That year the band performed their debut single at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony in London.
One Direction recorded their second album 'Take Me Home' in Stockholm, and released it in 2012 alongside the number one singles 'Live While We're Young' and 'Little Things', the latter of which they performed at the Royal Variety Performance.
In 2013, they released a mash-up of 'One Way or Another' and 'Teenage Kicks' for Comic Relief, during which time they went to Ghana as volunteers at a hospital.
That year their documentary movie 'One Direction: This Is Us' was released, directed by Morgan Spurlock, and became the fourth highest grossing concert movie. They also unveiled their album 'Midnight Memories' featuring lead single 'Best Song Ever'. They are the first British band to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 with its first three albums.
In 2014, they released 'One Direction: Where We Are - The Concert Film' and an autobiography entitled 'Who We Are', followed by their album 'Four'.
In 2015, it was announced that Zayn Malik had left the band. They later released the first single from their fifth album, 'Drag Me Down', and announced that they were planning a hiatus to explore solo career paths.
The 'X Factor' boss wasn't happy when Niall signed with a rival record label.
Don’t expect Niall Horan to make an appearance on ‘The X Factor’ anytime soon.

Horan, who has just released his first solo single, told an American radio show that One Direction would be "stupid" not to reunite at some point.
The 23 year old singer, who has recently announced a solo career and released a new single ‘This Town’, was speaking to American radio show hosts Kannon and Sybil on Tuesday (October 18th), and said: “We’d be stupid not to go back to it. It changed our lives, there’s no doubt about it.”
But while he’s certain that 1D will eventually end their hiatus and get back together, he can’t give the band’s fans the other bit of news they want: when they’ll do it.

Zayn’s upcoming autobiography promises to be full of juicy revelations.
In an excerpt from his upcoming autobiography Zayn, obtained by NME, the singer says that sex was a subject he could ever touch while in the squeaky-clean boyband.
Zayn Malik is happy he can now talk about sex
Malik's book, simply titled 'Zayn', is published on November 1st, and excerpts were published today via the NME.
Zayn Malik appears to have a few choice words for his former One Direction bandmates, in new excerpts from his forthcoming autobiography in which he claims he is relieved to be able to sing about sex in his music now that he’s gone solo.
According to selected parts of the 23 year old’s upcoming book obtained by the NME, he speaks more about the sense of artistic restriction during his time in the world-famous British boyband.

Niall Horan has joined forces with The Rolling Stones' producer Don Was on his forthcoming album.
The former One Direction band member - who recently released his debut solo single 'This Town' with Capitol Records - is believed to be working with Don, who would be the ''ideal'' person to assist Horan with this career.
And it is believed Horan approached Don after a conversation with the 'Wild Horses' hitmaker.
The ‘X Factor’ boss has previously been outspoken about the lack of loyalty from some One Direction members.
Horan’s ‘This Town’ is at number nine in this week’s singles chart, while James Arthur, who is signed to Cowell’s Syco label, is at number one with 'Say You Won't Let Go'.
Simon Cowell has taken a cheeky swipe at Niall Horan
