Niall Horan

Niall Horan

Niall Horan is one-fifth of the British/Irish boyband One Direction that formed on the talent show The X Factor. One Direction's other members are Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne. They finished third on The X Factor, but went on to have massive success, reinvigorating the boy band genre and starting a British invasion in the U.S.

A few facts about Niall: He was born on Sept. 13, 1993 in County Westmeath, Ireland. Growing up, Niall performed in school choir and around his homeland. He is the only Irish member of One Direction, as well as the only 1D star who plays guitar in concert.

Niall has never had a public girlfriend, even though he has been linked to various ladies through rumors. He openly admitted he has a crush on singer and actress Demi Lovato, but they remain "just friends."

One Direction, has released three albums: Up All Night, Take Me Home and Midnight Memories. The fourth album, appropriately titled Four, is set to be released Nov. 2014. The band's hit songs include "What Makes You Beautiful," "Kiss You," "Live While We’re Young," "Best Song Ever," "One Thing" and "Story of My Life."

1D fans call themselves Directioners and are known to write crazy fancitions and "dirty imagines," aka fantasies, about Niall and the other boy band members on Tumblr. One author even changed the fanfiction game by receiving a major book deal for her One Direction-inspired online story titled After featuring a main character named Harry.
