Liam Payne Career
In 2008, Payne auditioned for the television talent competition ‘The X Factor’. He performed well enough and reached the penultimate stage of the show ‘Judges’ Houses’.
By the next year, X-Factor had raised their application age to 16, making him ineligible to audition. However, he continued to train as a vocalist in the meantime.
At the ‘Bootcamp’ round, he sang ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ and won the approval of three judges. However, Simon thought this performance was one-dimensional and on the suggestion of guest judge Nicole Scherzinger, he was clubbed with four other participants to form a five-member band that qualified for the ‘Groups’ category.
The band thus formed reached the grand finale of the show. However, they could manage to win the third spot only. The group came to be known as ‘One Direction’.
After the show was over, One Direction was signed to Simon’s Syco Entertainment. Till date, they have released five albums. They became the only group ever to have all five albums debut at number 1 position of the Billboard Hot 200 chart.
Payne is one of the principal writers in One Direction. He has co-written with Louis Tomlinson most of the songs in the band’s third and fourth album. He has also taken over band-mate Zayn Malik’s vocals after Malik quit the band in 2015.
