One Direction’s X Factor performance – the Twitter reaction

Fans react as Dermot O'Leary accidentally says there's four members and the band performs in the middle of tonight's result...

One Direction were X Factor finalists back in 2010, the glory days of the show everyone is so keen to recreate. Their mentor Simon Cowell is back on the judging panel, but these boys aren’t here to sing for survival anymore. Oh, no. Tonight the five-piece band returned as “the biggest band on the planet” to sing as a guest act once again alongside smash-hit star Sam Smith. 


The 1D fans are dedicated, loud and proud. Here’s what they had to say on Twitter…

First up, they do need to remind ol’ Derms that there’s five of them, with the host saying the “four boys” would be on the show tonight. 


Awkward just about covers it

Anyway, back to the five boys, there was a little bit of excitment

Not too much

Ok, so the performance was pre-recorded

But that doesn’t stop the fans

In fact, the fans have a lot to celebrate tonight

What do you reckon guys?

There were nerves…

There were warnings

This certainly would have made waves

The reactions came quickly

A lot of love for track Steal My Girl

More and more

In fact, it’s hard to keep up
