One Direction

Members: Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson
Kevin Jonas, Nick Jonas and Joe Jonas You'd have to be living in a cave(or possible just out of the country?) to not know about the latest objects of tween's affections, British boy group One Direction! Hand-picked by Simon Cowell on the set of the X-factor, the boys ranging in age from 18-21 sing classic pop odes and ballads to their lady loves, making all the girls swoon. They've been compared to the Beatles and what with their first single reaching over a 100 million hits on Youtube, One Direction Mania isn't going to die down any time soon.

Next Up: The 1d hijinks continue!
