In 2010, The X Factor TV show in the UK put together five singers — Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson to create the group One Direction.
Now the show has released the unseen footage of how the group was formed, and TMI have learned that One Direction might not have existed without Nicole Scherzinger.
Watch the video The X Factor shared on YouTube that showed various candidates with Niall Horan being the first selection for the group that came to be known as One Direction.
Scherzinger pointed out, “They’re just too talented to get rid of. They’ve got just the right look and the right charisma onstage. I think they’ll be really great in a boy band together. They’re like little stars. You can’t get rid of little stars, you know? So you put ’em all together.”
