On July 23, 2010, One Direction got together on “The X Factor UK.” The group was comprised of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik. They all auditioned separately. They were about to get the boot but Simon Cowell and the judges decided to put them together to make group.
They ended up finishing in third place, but went on to become one of the most successful music acts of all time. But so much has changed since 2010: Malik left the group last year and the rest of group are on hiatus. Just a couple days ago, Payne announced he signed a solo record deal.
Tomlinson, one half of LiLo, recorded a video message for fans saying, “I just wanted to film a little message to say thank you because you guys are incredible. Your continued support is remarkable, really, and every single one of you had a hand in changing our lives, and I hope you’re as proud as we are.”
And Twitter erupted.

Devin Corwin writes, “one direction has lasted for 6 years strong (minus zayn leaving) & yet i cant even have a solid friendship for over a month.”
