Niall Horan, from Ireland, had been in school choirs and loved playing his guitar. His excellent singing voice and interest in music led him to “The X Factor.” Zayn Malik, from England, constantly played music on his computer and sang, when, "looking for an experience," he decided to audition for “The X Factor.” Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are also from England and were always singing and involved in music before their separate paths led them to “The X Factor” to audition as solo candidates.
Despite their obvious talent, none of them qualified for the "Boys" category; but one of the judges, Nicole Scherzinger, suggested they get together to form a five-piece boy band and try out for the "Groups" category instead. After finishing as third runner-up, their single "Forever Young", which would have been released had they won, was leaked onto the Internet and launched them into their current stardom.
Since forming, One Direction initially signed with Simon Cowell's company, Syco Records, and later signed a record deal with Columbia Records, where their success has grown. They hold the honor of having the fastest-selling debut album on the United Kingdom albums chart for 2011 and are the first U.K. group ever to debut at number one with their very first album.
Among their musical achievements: They have come out with three books, all titled with their band name. Each book contains exclusive personal and behind-the-scenes pictures, backstage photos and interviews with each of the band members. Their book subtitled with their first released single, "Forever Young," chronicles the boys' trek to discovery and the relationship they have with each other now as they share space on their tours and live their dream of being pop stars. The other book, "Dare to Dream" gives the reader an inside look of their life on the road and meeting their fans on a daily basis which shows they truly love what they do.
One aspect in the life of popular and successful musicians is the responsibility to market various products. One Direction has teamed up with Hasbro to direct attention to new featured toys, games and products featuring the band members. They also became pin-up models for their own calendar for 2012, lent their images to feature on a special edition Nokia phone with exclusive benefits, and have been performing at various special events to meet their fans and gain more exposure in hope of promoting their music to its fullest potential.
Of course, despite this other marketing One Direction's main goal is to promote their music. Even Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez have admitted to dancing along to their music. The music is catchy pop and is perfect to groove to or download into an iPod. Get One Direction tour tickets today!
