Without Nicole Scherzinger there would be no One Direction
The boys of One Direction started their music career and approached X Factor (UK) as solo artists but if it wasn’t for Nicole Scherzinger stepping in and suggesting they form a band, they wouldn’t be where they are now!
Approaching the reality show as an “experience” Zayn Malik was all for joining with the other guys to form the band.
“It was pretty much a choice of progress in the competition as a group or go home as a solo” Malik told Nova FM’s Christo and Kaite.
“I’m going to give it a go and I wanna see how far I can get in the competition and if that means I have to be in a group then that’s what I’m going to do” he said.
A lot of respect for their fans and online following Malik isn’t letting the fame get to his head
“we’re just five young lads doing what we’re doing and getting on with it”.
