One Direction are a boy band made up of Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik. They applied as solo candidates to the the competition show "The X Factor" but failed to qualify for the boys category. After a suggestion by guest judge Nicole Scherzinger, the five teens were put into a band, thus qualifying for the groups category. For their qualifying song and their first ever song as a group they sang "Torn", they finished the X Factor in third place.Following the X Factor, they signed a deal with Simon Cowell's Syco records and have since gone on to conquer the world selling out arenas and stadiums worldwide.
