You might remember Liam from the 2008 auditions when, at the age of 14, he made it as far as Simon's house in Barbados. However, Simon believed he wasn't ready for the competition. With two years to improve on his voice, is Liam ready now?

What a great performance ! Simon knew what he was talking about when he said to Liam to come back in 2 years time. He get's him to join Harry, Louis, Zain and Niall, all similar in age, sounds and good looks, to form the most incredibly tallented new boyband for years, then lands the role of mentoring the groups, (crafty one), at Louis Walsh's expense! So Simon has made sure he is also a winner this year.
There is only "One Direction" now for them and that is upwards !
All the best boys, Terry
