Over the weekend, the 24-year-old former One Direction singer took to his personal Twitter profile to send a messages to fans revealing that it’s officially been ten years since his first audition on British singing competition, “X Factor”!
By now, everyone knows the story of Liam Payne’s “X Factor” journey: he first auditioned at the age of 14 and didn’t get through the first round, but returned two years later to blow away the judges and join four other young singers to form the boy band, One Direction. If it wasn’t for Liam’s determination to become a singer, who knows if One Direction would have existed!
Congrats on your epic milestone, Liam and here’s to many more years of hearing you sing!
Just thoughts 💭…. when I auditioned for X factor 10 years ago I had a hole in my George Asda shoes, borrowed Armandi jeans from a friend just a 14 year old boy with big dreams … crazy what ten years can do… thank you 🙏🏼
