They have been around for 2 years exactly now and they have come to far. Directioners couldn't be any prouder of them! They are also very great live! I saw them June 16, 2012 (Best day of my life! ) I love them so much! They are amazing boys. They have won a lot of awards including a Brit. They also continue to stay humble even though they are super famous and rich. They are great as a band. Pretty much their all brothers.
