Niall originally had big dreams of being a solo music star. When he didn’t make the cut for boys soloists round in the "X-Factor" UK, he and the four other lads were picked to form One Direction, which ultimately came in third in the reality music competition. They were later signed to Simon Cowell’s record label Syco.
Having put Niall through during the 2010 season of the UK 'X-Factor,' fellow pop star Katy Perry is one of Niall's biggest fans. She even congratulated him on his group’s success in the US via Twitter:
@NiallOfficial congratulations, you didn't let me down! xo— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) March 13, 2012
Aside from being a talented singer, Niall is also great on the guitar. He’s quoted as saying that receiving a guitar for Christmas one year was the best present he could have ever received.
Horan’s career inspiration? Michael Buble. Horan remembers a time when he was singing in the car and his family noticed his vocal talents. "My aunt said she thought the radio was on. Exactly the same thing happened to Michael Bublé with his dad. He's my absolute hero so I like the fact we have a similar story.”
