One Direction Bio

One Direction

One Direction was the leader of the boy band resurgence of 2012 and became the figurehead of a modern British Invasion into the United States. The band members – Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson – all auditioned separately for the seventh season of the British TV show, The X Factor, but joined forces at the suggestion of Nicole Scherzinger (one of the show’s judges).

After finishing third on the show, the group would capitalize on their popularity and ink a deal with Simon Cowell’s Synco label. One Direction has already sold over eight million albums in their young career, backed by massively popular singles “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Live While We’re Young.”

One Direction performances are packed wall-to-wall across the globe with young, infatuated girls and older women who recall the days when Justin Timberlake was part of ‘N Sync. The group won over harsher critics with surprisingly on point covers of songs like “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon.

Make sure to buy your One Direction tickets as soon as they go on sale, as the band’s fans are social media and Internet savvy and never miss a beat to see the new torchbearers of boy band music.

WHY!? I have to ask why. I thought boy band music died with the greats like Backstreet Boys. Their music is just ridiculously catchy. I guess I understand why teeny boppers like them, but its not just teeny boppers! Can someone please explain to me the appeal of One Direction's music? Or is it just a common guilty pleasure?

How can I best describe One Direction? They are the descendants in a long line of the fabricated boy band species that happens to be this year’s popular flavor. Their lineage includes The Monkees, Menudo, New Edition, New Kids on the Block, Take That, Backstreet Boys, N Sync, Westlife, etc. Just like their predecessors that have launched a couple extremely poppy songs including “One Thing” and “What Makes You Beautiful” which have received extreme amounts of airplay on all forms of Top 40 radio, tv, and websites. And also like their predecessors they are driving young girls into frenzies with their pre-determined styles, looks, and moderate singing and dancing abilities. I will also say that these guys should enjoy every minute of the ride they are currently on…their flash will not last too long and I hope they fully take advantage of their time in the spotlight.

Finally saw these guys perform at the Olympic Closing Ceremonies (on TV not live). Been hearing a lot about them. Nothing spesh. Just another boy band. Tell me I'm wrong if I am though...
