That was all thanks to his mother, who proposed that Harry enter the televised music contest. In The X Factor, he performed an impressive rendition of “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder.

Aside from Harry, there were also four promising boys who was not able to proceed. The guys names were Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson. They were all of the same age group as Styles. Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger came up with the idea of forming them into a group. This made it possible for Harry and the boys to advance to the next stage but, this time, under the “Group” category. They may not have made it further to the solo part of the competition but at least they were able to progress as a group.
Now that the group was formed thanks to the intervention of some judges, Harry suggested the name One Direction. The name was fitting because that was also what was going on between the boys. Because of that, they decided to keep the name.
It was no surprise that the group gained popularity in the UK several weeks of live shows after. The group also advanced to the competition as Cowell’s last act. The group only won third place but this was still a victory because it would propel them to what is about to come.

The year was 2011 and Cowell signed the boys up for a recording contract with Syco Records. It had a reported deal of £2 million or $2.5 million. Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall, and Zayn worked hard during the recording and released their “What Makes You Beautiful” debut single. In September 2011, it soared to number one on the UK Singles Chart.
Two months later, One Direction released their first studio album Up All Night. The album was a massive hit in the US and it got into top one with only its debut.

The boy band was working hard because they recorded another album called Midnight Memories on the same year. Songs from the album “Story of My Life” and “Best Song Ever” became hit singles and these contributed to making Midnight Memories the best-selling album of that year.
In 2015, they released their fourth album Four but it was the last album with Zayn Malik because he left the group in 2014. After that, One Direction worked on their fifth album Made in the A.M. but it was never released. The group confirmed that they were currently on a hiatus and are working on other projects.
