'''One Direction''' (commonly initialized as '''1D''') is a British-Irish BoyBand formed in London, England. Originally, the boys auditioned for the seventh series of ''Series/TheXFactor'' as individuals. They were assembled into a group by Simon Cowell, who became their mentor throughout the show. After placing third, Cowell signed One Direction to his own record label in 2010. Since then, the band has skyrocketed to worldwide fame, releasing many hit singles, winning numerous awards, and unseating Music/JustinBieber as the biggest teen heartthrobs in the world. After five years of word domination, 1D have become the most successful boy band to ever come out of either the UK or Ireland[[note]]Not counting, of course, Music/TheBeatles, whose status as a boy band is highly disputed[[/note]].

** ''Take Me Home'' (2012) - One Direction are one of very few groups to have debuted at the top with both of their first two albums. Only GirlGroup Danity Kane and Eminem's rap troupe D12 have done so prior to them.

* BoyBand: Their most defining characteristic. While their record sales trail the Music/BackstreetBoys and Music/{{NSYNC}}, One Direction is said to have a larger fan base than their predecessors. While One Direction are significantly behind Music/TakeThat's success in their homeland, they have eclipsed them everywhere else. Their five-man band formula goes as follows:
** The Heartthrob: Harry
** The Mysterious Bad Boy : Zayn
** The Cute One: Niall
** The Older Brother: Liam
** The Funny One: Louis. Unlike most boy bands, the bad boy is also the mysterious one. Louis' role in the band is instead the jokester.
* BritishEnglish: In interviews they use a lot of British slang, which can be confusing for foreign fans.

* {{Camp}}: Their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4cdfRohhcg Kiss You]] video, to great success.
* CatchPhrase: Zayn has "Vas Happenin'?". The other boys use pretty much any opportunity to mimic it.

** What's even more painful for the losers is the Brits' decision to go global that year. Had the awards ceremony remained a domestic event, One Direction, while still likely to win the award, would probably have had far less than 93% of the vote.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: ''A.M.'' from their fifth studio album ''Made In The A.M.'' drops the first ever swear word to be used in the history of One Direction's songs:
''We'll be singing out of our asses.''
* HairFlip: A running joke in the group is Liam's "One, Two, Three, Flick" dance routine. Except now there's no hair to flick. It eventually grew back. Kind of.



** Actually most of their songs could be interpreted as this. They may as well call themselves GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The Band.

* {{Irony}}: The band's SignatureSong is "What Makes You Beautiful", which has the lines "don't need makeup to cover up, being the way that you are is enough" and One Direction just released a line of makeup.

* PungeonMaster: Harry likes puns. The other boys like pointing out how lame they are.
* RefrainFromAssuming: Zayn's "Pillowtalk" is not called "So We'll Piss Off the Neighbors", "Paradise" or "War Zone".

* SpearCounterpart: To Music/FifthHarmony, since they both have 5 members and they both started out on The X Factor (the former in the US version, the latter in the UK version). They both consisted of five solo artists who were put into a group after getting rejected, they both finished third, and they have similar shorthand names (5H and 1D). The only differences is that 5H is American, and they have a more 'urban' bend while 1D is closer to adult contemporary.
