One Direction Begins Hiatus Following X-Factor Goodbye

(Radio.com) The guys of One Direction have spent five years tweeting, touring and recording, but their well-deserved hiatus started this week. To kick it off, the four remaining members returned to the show where it all began. Niall, Liam, Louis and Harry took to the X Factor stage in London to perform "History" as their last scheduled performance, for now.

The appearance also reunited the band with Simon Cowell, who had nothing but praise for the lads: 'Well, this takes me back five years ago when I met five guys, singing as solo artists, and then I never could have predicted what happened next.

"And I know you're gonna take a break, you deserve the break. I want to really just take the chance now to say thank you. You've been an absolute pleasure to work with Five of the nicest guys I ever met. Enjoy the time off. Have a fantastic time," Cowell said. Read more here.
