This week is certainly one to remember, with One Direction not only celebrating wins at the teen choice awards, but also their stunning two year foray in the music industry. What better way to celebrate than looking back on some of their achievements in such a short period of time!
One Direction raced out of the X Factor and dove straight into recording their debut album, which lead to the release of ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ which entered the charts at the number one and became the infectious teen anthem that EVERYONE knows the words to.
Unfortunately, Rihanna kept the boys of top spot in the UK, but they became the first UK band to debut at number one on the US Billboard top 200 chart – and also went number one in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland…the list goes on!
The boys first joined Twitter way back in 2010 when they were still contestants in a pool of very talented peers. Now, they have a combined Twitter following of over 20 million!
Directioners are some of the most dedicated fans out there and it’s great to see that 1D love their fans as much as they love the group!
Along with successful music sales, One Direction has released books, phone covers, hoodies, shirts, wristbands, DVD’s and even dolls.
f there is something you need, then no doubt there is a 1D branded version of it out there somewhere! After an appearance on an Australian morning show, Niall’s half eaten vegemite toast allegedly went on eBay…it actually got some bids!
