What Was Your Initial Reaction? Niall recalls being “honestly shocked, because a couple of minutes earlier we were leaving the competition as soloists. Then two minutes later we were in a group and still going to go on in the competition.”
How Did You Build Up Your Chemistry? Niall continued, “We all went to Harry’s house and we all spent a week getting to know each other to make sure we were all friends before we were band mates. We were playing soccer all the time and just jamming on the guitar…we all get along really well, and even when we’re not at work we all spend time together and we all live next to each other.”
