After 5 years, pop sensation One Direction is finally taking their much deserved break and we’re so sad to see them leave for a while.
One Direction took it back to their old stomping grounds of X Factor UK to perform their very last song before hiatus. One Direction started on the popular show but they had all auditioned as solo acts until Simon Cowell (show producer, judge, manager, and music guru) put the lads together. What a full circle moment this performance was!
The boys performed their newest song “History” off their recent album Made In The A.M. and while performing there was a slideshow of throwback pictures of the boys commemorating them and their success. The slideshow even included recent band member Zayn Malik in the pictures as they looked back on their 5 years of success and constant performing.
After the performance Liam Payne stated:
“We’re sad that we’re going away for a little while, but we need it. Just thank you to all the fans that supported us over the years. You can see how happy we are, and it’s just genuine happiness and it’s all because of you guys, so thank you so much.”
The performance ended with an emotional hug between the 4 lads and they reflected on their last five years as a band.
All the emotions, all the tears. We can’t believe the guys are taking a break for a while but we do know that they definitely earned it. 1D says they will be making their return back soon but in the meantime they’re just going to relax and have some normal lives. Fingers crossed the boys stick to this promise and return so we can get new music from One Direction for years to come!
