Liam Payne Celebrates 10th Anniversary of ‘X Factor’ Audition with Throwback Pic!

As any good One Direction fan knows, ten years ago, a handful of British boys (and one Irish boy!) auditioned for the “X Factor,” and the rest is history. But of course, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan had no idea just how famous they’d become!

So on June 14th, to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of that fateful day, Liam shared an old pic and a few thoughts about just how nervous he was. Talking about his recent successes, he said, “that scared young man didn’t think that was gunna happen.”

Liam continued, “Seriously thank you everyone who’s made this decade of my life possible and to everyone who’s listening thank you for enjoying my music and my bands too.”
