On the 12th anniversary of One Direction, the UK X Factor released unreleased footage on how the boy band was formed. Fans went crazy and also got us thinking as it seems that maybe former The Pussycat Dolls member, Nicole Scherzinger, was the one who might have created the boy band instead of Simon Cowell🤔
In the video it shows Simon, Nicole and Louis Walsh gathered around a table looking at pictures of contestants who they think should move forward. The first boy chosen for the band was Niall Horan then Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and finally Zayn Malik. You can check out the video below to see for yourself and decide if you think Nicole was actually the one behind the talented boy band, One Direction, instead of Simon.
Nicole actually ended up talking about the unreleased footage on Sherri Sheperd's talkshow, Sherri, when the video was brought up by Sherri. Nicole said that she didn't think the footage would ever be seen and thought Simon had burned it😂 She went on to say that, "the way that my mind was working, I just came out of a girl group. I know how successful and powerful it can be to be a group." She said she was super proud to play such a small part in creating One Direction. Well we are thankful for Nicole and I mean also Simon and Louis for creating such an amazing group and also giving us Harry Styles as well😂 You can check out the full interview below!
