Watch The Original One Direction Audition Videos From X-Factor

Guys! We’ve almost gone an entire day without discussing the magical wonderfulness that is One Direction. How embarrassing! Luckily we caught our error before the day’s over and we can deliver you the latest and greatest from our fave boy band (sorry The Wanted). Today’s 1D news? It’s an oldie but a goodie.

All the way back in 2010 the five talented fetuses (feti?) auditioned to be on X-Factor in the UK. They were nameless blokes with no one to cheer them on and no one to turn their clever little quotes into gifs. It’s hard to imagine a world where names like Harry Styles meant nothing. But that world existed. It was a cold, dark and bleak place where the term “boy bands” evoked images of a washed-up Nick Carter or Justin Timberlake dancing around stage with his dick in a box.

Well thanks to our friend Youtube, we found the original audition tapes of all five boys edited into just one video. Yep, we’ve got Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan.  Shockingly enough all the judges aren’t on board for all five boys. Little did they know that these young boys (and they do look young!) would turn into global singing sensations.

      Jenni Stop jumping on 1D’s d**k. They don’t like no name bloggers riding on their coat tails to fame.

        Odds are you aren’t a real 1D fan. We would never tell people to STOP talking about them.

      I adore One Directon and Louis is probably my favorite, but how did he get three to say yes? His audition was a little iffy
