While there have been a huge amount of wannabe artists that have attempted to make it in the music industry through X Factor and failed, there have also been quite a few more successful acts. However, none more so that boyband One Direction.
One Direction have not only become a huge success in the UK but they have also managed to crack the US market and pretty much the rest of the world. It could be argued that other successful X Factor contestants, such as Leona Lewis, are better than One Direction but the boyband’s success sets them apart from the rest.
The One Direction boys, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik, can put a lot of their success down to luck. Afterall, each one of them auditioned for The X Factor as solo artists before the shows execs decided to put them together as a band.
There is also the fact that Zayn Malik almost walked out on the show during boot camp, before being persuaded to return by Simon Cowell. However, a lot of their success comes down to the fact that the boys have a lovable charm and bags of talent and are likely to be around for many years to come.
Despite coming third in The X Factor, One Direction can take solace in the fact that they are considered by most to be the best act on The X Factor ever!
