All 5 of the boys had hopes of becoming a solo artist, but then they didn't make it through the Bootcamp stage in the X-Factor Competition, Simon Cowell and his judging panel decided that the boys would make the perfect group. One Direction have been nothing but busy since they wee voted off the show, actually they were signed to a record label the next day! Now they are taking the world by storm. Characterization:

He has four younger sisters, Charlotte, Felicity, and twin sisters Daisy and Phoebe. Louis is known as the practical joker of the group, always looking to have a laugh.

Harry Styles was born on February 1st, 1994 in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, England. He has an older sister, Gemma. Harry is known as the flirt of the group, the other members of the band say the power is in the curls, the women love him! Harry auditioned for the X-Factor in 2010, singing Stevie Wonder's Isn't She Lovely, receiving 2 yes's and 1 no panelist Louis Walsh thought Styles had potential but wasn't quite ready. But Harry was off to bootcamp. Niall James Horan born on September 13, 1993, in Mullingar, Country Westmeath, Ireleand. Niall has on older brother, Greg, as a matter of fact Greg was the one who picked out Niall's name. Niall is known as the care- free one of the group, who laughs at everything. Niall auditioned for the X-Factor in 2010, singing Ne-Yo So Sick. At the time, the X-Factor had a guest judge, Katy Perry. Niall received 2 yes's and 2 no's, Katy Perry was the deciding vote, she basically held Niall's future in her hands. She said yes, and she also added don't let me down. With that being said, Niall was off to the bootcamp stage of the competition. Liam James Payne was born on August 29, 1993 in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England. He has 2 older sisters, Nicola and Ruth. Liam is known as the sensible one of the group, always looking out for the other band members. Payne knew what it was like to go through the X-Factor process, he had previously auditioned when he was only 14 years old. Liam had made it all the way to mentor, Simon Cowell's house in Barbados, he was then eliminated. Then in 2012, 2 years after being eliminated, 16 year old Liam Payne decided he was going to give X-Factor another shot. He sang Michael Buble's version of Cry Me A River, receiving 4 yes's, and a standing ovation from previous mentor, Simon Cowell. Liam was back in the game, and ready for bootcamp. Zayn Javadd Malik was born on January 19, 1993 in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. He has one older sister, Doniya and 2 younger sisters, Waliyha and Safaa. He is known as the quite, vain one of the group. Shy and quite Zayn, auditioned for the X-Factor in 2010, singing Mario's Let Me Love You. He received 3 yes's, he was on to the bootcamp stage of the competition. Bootcamp, the place where Zayn nearly lost it all, now that the X-Factor had added a choreography session to the compettion and by no means could Zayn dance. Zayn decided he would go in back and hide, nobody would notice he would be gone, but Simon Cowell did. He made Zayn, go and finish bootcamp. Elements
of Plot Exposition:
To the untrained knowledge, they may think the band One Direction has been a band since the beginning of time, but that is not true. It all started back in 2010, when Louis, Harry, Niall, Liam, and Zayn all entered the X-Factor competition in the United Kingdom with hopes of becoming the next big solo artist. After making it past the audition part, all 5 boys were off to the bootcamp part of the competition. Bootcamp, the part where all 5 boys chocked under the pressure and did not deliver, causing them to be eliminated as a solo artist. Following the dissappointment of being eliminated, show creator Simon Cowell, wanted the 5 boys for an interview, this is where he suggested that the 5 individuals, become a group. The boys jumped on the offer, they would be silly not to. Now, they were through to judge's house to see if they would make it through to the live shows. Rising Action:
This was the first time One Direction would perform together, in Barbados Spain, for their mentor Simon Cowell. One Direction decided they were going to sing Torn by Natalie Imbruglia. Then, right before the performance, band member Louis Tomlinson, was playing in water, and was stung by a sea urchin. Tomlinson was rushed to the hospital, and made it back just in enough time to give the performance that would determine if they would go on to the live shows portion of the competition. Cowell had one more act he could send to the live shows, and he had 2 bands left, One Direction and another band. Simon Cowell weighed the odds and decided to put One Direction through to the live shows. The 5 boys, who dreamed of being solo artists were now a band with no idea what was going to happen to them, no one actually knew how big these boys were going to be. Climax:
One Direction was now participating in the live shows, week after week the boys did nothing but give a great performance. One Direction was never in the bottom two, some thought that they would be the first group to ever win the X-Factor. Then, it was down to the bottom 3, One Direction, Rebecca Ferguson, and Matt Cardle. Then came something no one expected, One Direction had been eliminated receiving 3rd place overall. One Direction was devastated, they did not know how to take the loss, it is reported that band member Harry Styles cried the most out of all the boys. Now, the boys had to go pack up their things, then do a few interviews. They were absolutely shocked and devastated, but little did they know what mentor Simon Cowell, had had planned for them, something better than winning the X-Factor. Falling Action:
Simon Cowell sat the boys down in front of him, you could tell that tensions were high. Simon got to talking and as band member Niall Horan said "Simon always talks you up, the bring you right back down, so we had no idea going into the conference what was going to happen" Then Simon said "Syco Records will be signing you in the morning." One Direction, had not won the X-Factor, Simon said he was only going to sigh the winner, this was huge! The boys although could only tell their family, until the competition was over, then they could tell outsiders. The boys were so overjoyed, this was going to change their lives! So, instead of the boys going back to regular life which band member Harry Styles said "That was going to be a bit awkward", the boys were going to Syco Records to start work on an album! Resolution:
Now, the boys had put all their time and energy into making the album the best it could be. People had set high expectations for One Direction, one of them was being able to "break" the States. One Direction did just that, they also became the first British-Irish boy band to get to number 1 on the billboards 200 list with their single, this was something not even accomplished by the legendary Beatles. It is hard to believe that the X-Factor was 2 years ago, and since that time One Direction has, won a Brit (being the only artist to beat out Adele for an award, won 3 VMA's, became the youngest act to perform at the Olympics, and won a Teen Choice Award. Currently, One Direction is planning to embark on their 2013 World Tour, and meet as many fans as possible. The only way is UP for One Direction. Point
