Who’s The Best Dancer In One Direction? Find Out…

94

[We're in a reposting mood today, so here's an article from December last year]

X Factor dance choreographer superstar Brian Friedman has been talking with The Sun about One Direction, and in particular their dancing skills.

Niall and Harry

The lads are famously not known for their moves, but when quizzed about the 1D boys’ dancing skills, Brian said:

“Harry was definitely the best dancer. He was always good at the choreography. Niall was good at remembering which direction to move in.”

And the long-term Directioners amongst you might remember that Zayn had a bit of stage-fright when he was first asked to dance on X Factor, and Brian said:

“We all saw at Boot Camp that Zayn was about to walk away from the competition because of his dancing. But he’s better than he thought.”

We put together an awesome compilation video of some of 1D’s greatest ever dance moves a few weeks ago, so what better time than to show it again?

Watch the following “One Direction Best Dancing Video EVER!” – and pay attention at the end for Zayn’s X Factor bit – aww ;)

Who thinks that we should see more of One Direction’s dancing skills?

    IT’S LIAM. Duuuuh!

  • 1d_sister

    Personally, I think Louis is the best!!!

  • 1D lover

    i love ALL of them lol

  • http://twitter.com/KrystalBell20 Krystal Bell

    Awww that video was adorable. And zayn is so cute hes better at dancing than he thinks!!

  • ILOVE1DX5

    Don’t worry Zayn I think you dance AmaZAYN!!!!!

    • http://www.fb.com/1dsfans Mrs.Ghazal Malik

      yeah!!

  • Sarah

    Guyz i think we don’t pay attention to liam as much as others i mean it’s not fare he is one part of the 1d but in many cases i see he becomes the least popular and … Please love him like others:-V

    • http://twitter.com/FabulousNails FabulousNails

      Just because the X factor choreographer tells a newspaper that Harry and Niall were the best with dancing doesn’t mean that people don’t like Liam… The guy commented on Zayn because of the whole dancing fiasco, but I don’t think that this article has anything to do with Liam being less popular.
      I’m not saying are wrong, I am merely surprised that this article leads to those comments about Liam.

      • Darcy Styles

        Exactly!! Besides, they didn’t mention Louis either!

        • Riel Whittle

          No love for our dear Louis

    • Darcy Styles

      They pay attention to Liam, they didn’t include Louis either. (not in the video, i meant)

    • ILOVE1DX5

      Niall is more ignored than Liam… most girls wouldnt care if Niall left (I WOULD JUST DIE!!!!!)

      • Sam

        Niall is the most popular in the band, everyone who is a directioner would care, I have no clue what you are talking about

        • NonHaylorShippaa

          I agree with Sam .__. And this site also posted up something a while ago about fans voting who they love most. It was Niall

          • ILOVE1DX5

            A while back a poll was takin and Niall was the most girls didnt care bout if he left

        • ILOVE1DX5

          Okay, lets start this. There’s about 86% Directioners who wouldn’t really mind if Niall left One Direction, right now. Where are the 24% who would fall on the floor crying and thowing a tantrum? Those are real Directioners. You know, Niall has the LEAST amount of solos, he has about a minute and forty three seconds of solos in One Directions full Up All Night album. Thats just sad. Niall has said himself, “Sometimes all the other guys get hugged by fans accept me, it hurts but I don’t make a big deal about it.” I find that hard to believe! We love our little Nialler. Because come on, Niall is almost ignored by the management basically, and even by fans. Protest! LNS! Post this on every thing you get on: WE LOVE OUR NIALLER! TELL EVERY ONE! LNS. LET NIALL SING. ADD YOUR NAME TO EVERYTHING YOU POST IT ON!!!! Hope you see my point. Directioners Forever <3 put your name on the bottom of this
