This time last year they won their very first award for ‘Best British Single’, for debut single ‘What Makes You Beautiful’.
Remember that one?
They weren’t favourites to win then, and again this year they’re not favourites to win their latest category ‘Best British Group’.
Ok, we know who we’d pick from Alt-J, Mumford & Sons, Muse, The XX and 1D, but we reckon Mumford & Sons might pip us for the award.
The gongs will be given out this Wednesday evening live on ITV, and NO X Factor act has ever won a Brit Award which was not voted for by the public.
So if 1D do manage to pull it off, it might possible be their biggest triumph yet.
Fellow X Factor success story Leona Lewis has received SIX nominations over the years but famously never won any.
Remind yourselves of last year by watching 1D pick up their award for ‘Best British Single':
Oh the memories! Don’t they look cute

Who do you think will win?
