    back in the day the boybands could sing live, but these bunch of lip syncers are just a disgrace to the brand

    i cant believe how naive these teenage girls are. cute does not equal good music

    @jiggle: His name is Zayn and yes, he basically has the best voice (you’d think his something habit would prevent his voice from sounding so amazing all the time), but Liam also has a great voice.

    For those of you who call them lipsyncers, these guys got famous for performing on a LIVE show like american idol, where they had to sing LIVE every week.

    They are talented – shush.

    Dave Howard Says:

    @uk kid: Let me correct you, they got famous for all entering the show as solo artists, failed at that, and then got booted out at the beginning of the competition as a group, failed there too. Clearly very talented…

    The only place they’re a ‘sensation’ is in the US with teenage girls who have far too much time on there hands. They most certainly don’t represent anything good about British music.

    Liam and Zayn are gorgeous and my favourite from this band. In my opinion they have the best stage presence too.

    snl Says:

    i dont understand why their management put all the attention on that curly hair guy, the one in grey jacket, he seems to be the one having the least stage presence. the one in red is surely way better.

    This band is such a joke! Is this site full of 12 year old girls or what?

    uhm Says:

    @snl: Because he’s one of the top vocalist, which includes the guy in the red jacket (Zayn) and Liam… aside from that fact Harry received a lot of press coverage due to his relationship with Caroline Flack. So yes, it’s safe to assume that he’s more popular in the media’s eyes. Liam is like the lead vocalist and Zayn gets the high notes, because yeah, he has an amazing voice.

    Talent-wise though, I think Haryy has a pretty good voice (based on his X Factor tapes) but I guess in this SNL performance, his nerves got the best of him again, like in one X Factor episode.

    I love these boys!! but i recognise that they are not the best of the best when singing live!

    Sarah Says:

    IDGAF what you think, but I love them & I will support them till the end.
    Their music is awesome, their personalities are amazing, and their voices are just beautiful. Yeah they make mistakes, but who doesn’t?

    I kinda liked it (and I am an old ****) I loved how they weren’t perfectly choreographed- they were very real to me.
    the songs were catchy, and they are very cute.

    Seem like nice guys with ok voices. But I really am confused about the whole 1 direction hype. I dont get it.Very clever marketing by Mr Simon Cowell I think..

    Sabra Says:

    @Dave Howard: What do you mean booted out at the beginning of the competitio?. They placed third and so far have done better than both the first and second placers in and outside of the UK. I don’t understand why it is so difficult for some people to just give credit when it is due. One Direction can sing. They all of a different sound, which is great when you are in a group. Zayn’s high voice is clearly a favourite around here, but I love Harry’s raspy sound.

  34. 34
    Sabra Says:

    @snl: Well, he was the most popular in the UK, so I understand why a lot of focus went on him, but don’t judge his stage presence based on this performance. I have seen many performances and know that he shines. He is wonderful. Everyone has off days.

    I’m glad that Zayn (red jacket) is coming out of his shell more on stage.

  35. 35
    Sabra Says:

    @zhaz: I wouldn’t give Simon Cowell all the credit for One Direction’s fast rise. I would give the boys most. Their personalities and voices connected with people. People from all over the world discovered them on Youtube and other social network sites. I, for one, watched all their performances on the X Factor on Youtube and then actively sought out other videos. I am not even a teenager, but I am very proud of how far they have come.

    I think many people who don’t like the group are just music snobs. They think “good” music must come wrapped in a certain package. How limited is your taste?

    1980disney Says:

    There not bad, they remind me of my boyband time…the 90′s with the backstreet boys.

    Anyways what’s wup with the skinny jeans though?
    And the Justin Beaver haird, 3 of them have that going on. Messy hair, they should fix that.

  45. 45
    Nicole Says:

    It’s clear that Zayn has the best voice, the most stage presence, and obviously the better looking of the bunch… I just don’t understand why their team is set on Harry being the lead singer and face of the band. The British may by that, but Americans won’t. Zayn seems to be the only one with a solo career ahead of him.

    purplehaze Says:

    @amensister: actually they won 3rd place in The X-Factor UK 2010…so that kinda implies that they CAN sing, don’t you think? please research before you start bashing on someone.

    Louis is adorable. espcially when he was fidgeting with his ear pieces and then just gave up, and that little face he made at the end of One Thing. I would love to see more of him though, since he is my fav! (not to say i don’t love the other ones , becuase I do, but Louis is my fav)
