What if One Direction wasn't a five guy boyband, but only had four members? Nicole Scherzinger is dishing on the early X Factor days of 1D and revealed a secret: one of them wanted to be a solo star. So...1D as we know it almost didn't happen?

When she worked on The X Factor, Nicole said it was Liam Payne who was uncertain about joining a group. She told Pop Justice (via PressParty): "When I put the group together, Liam was hesitant about it because he wanted to go solo."

Um...can you imagine One Direction without Liam? Yeah. We don't even want to think about a world like that. As for her prediction about who she thinks will leave One Direction first to try a solo career, well, no surprises there. She thinks it will be Harry Styles. And given the almost daily rumors about Harry quitting One Direction, it's not a huge shocker.
Is Harry Styles Leaving One Direction?
