Simon Cowell is a genius at discovering pop groups, and don’t you forget it.
The sassy X Factor judge is bringing in the big guns, British boy band and pop culture phenom One Direction, to perform on Thursday’s X Factor USA results show. The band rose to fame after finishing in third place on Cowell’s X Factor UK in 2010.
“Having come from the UK X Factor, we can’t wait to perform on the U.S. stage – it’s going to be a great night,” said group member Zayn Malik in a statement. Added Niall Horan, “It’ll be the first time we’ve performed in front of ‘Uncle Si’ since we were on UK X Factor. So, hopefully we make him proud.”
