One direction is a pop music boy band from London, England consisting of members Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and previously Zayne Malik. All members of the band were initially solo artists who auditioned for the seventh season of the singing television competition The X Factor in 2010 and, after failing as individual artists, they came together to form a band in order to compete in the groups category. Although they reached third place in the competition, they gained a massive following internationally which helped propel their professional careers after getting signed by Syco Records.
