HISTORY QUESTION #11979

When Simon Cowell believed that One Direction had what it takes to become one of the biggest boy bands on the planet he told the Daily Star..what exactly?

I think they are the new Take That!

Explanation

In 2010, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson auditioned as solo candidates for the seventh series of British television reality singing competition The X Factor. They all failed to progress as individuals, but they were put together to form a five-piece boy band and qualified for the "Groups" category. Styles' father first suggested "Status Single" but they all did not agree. Styles then came up with the name "One Direction".
