5 Years of One Direction: A Walk Down Memory Lane

Today is a very special day; the day that has ruined my life; the day that One Direction was formed. July 23, 2010 at 8:22PM, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik were put into a singing group known to the world as One Direction. It’s no surprise that these boys soon took over the world, winning countless awards, dozens of televised performances, four albums, worldwide recognition, sold out tours, millions of concert dates, four perfumes, and even a feature film! It’s crazy to think just how much these boys have accomplished, and how many lives they have changed, saved, and touched.

For this special five year anniversary, I decided to create a little fan project. I asked fans to tweet with the #allthelove1d their favorite one direction moments and memories from the past five years. I have compiled them together and threw in a few of my favorites. Shout out to Michele for helping me with the extras! Here are 100 One Direction Moments from the past 5 Years, completely random and sent in by you then fans!!!

1. Video Diaries

Who could forget the first time you went on youtube and typed in “One Direction Funny Moments” and stumbled upon these wonderful videos. So authentic and genuine truly depicting fetus one direction. Who could ever forget NO JIMMY PROTESTED! and that Louis loves girls who eat carrots! Click below to enjoy all of the video diaries and relive those first days of One Direction

2. Auditions

It was love at first sight and sound as they boys took the stage and sang the classics

3. “This isn’t the last of One Direction”

Yes I know its ironic now that Zayn said this… but when we all were bummed that they didn’t win the competition and they asked about the future of the band we had no idea that One Direction was about to take over the world and ruin our lives for the next five years

4. A Year in the Making

Who could forget when Harry was so worried what people thought of him, when they all hung out in the bungalow and sang acoustic songs. So much happened in a year and I’m so glad they captured it in a little documentary.

This movie has so many iconic moments that may be mentioned later in the post but…ONE DIRECTION MADE A MOVIE AND IT WAS IN THEATERS! One of the many times I was so so so proud of them. Who could forget the premiere. I was watching it at my desk at work and trying so hard not to cry proud tears.

19 Things You Are Bound To See At An OTRA Concert

Hiiiii everyone! Its time to buckle up and strap in tight because today One Direction officially embarks on the North American leg of the On The Road Tour!!! Get ready for endless shenanigans around the states, countless fans casually stalking, I mean bumping… into the boys all around America. Get ready for more studio time, promo, and trips to Soul Cycle as the boys maneuver around the States and sing their little hearts out. It’s also important to keep in mind that all four boys are 21 now!!! One Direction, drunkenly coming to a bar near you!

I’m sure you have all been setting your world clocks to various locations trying to catch up with the European leg and the shows they played overseas. I can’t even tell you how many random countries I had added so I knew when to be awake when they were on stage. Spending countless days waiting to see if my favorite song would be added to the setlist, and saving numerous stage photos to my camera roll. I’m sure you have all seen the craziness that has unfolded during OTRA, but if you haven’t, I’ve compiled a list of all to expect on this upcoming tour.

1. LILO water fight

From waterguns to waterbottles, chances are by the end of the show both Louis and Liam will be soaking wet and will most likely fall, lets just pray they decide to wear white!

2. Harry being a stripper

Its no secret Harry loves his mic stand and random poles around the stage

3. Harry moaning


This happened at every show on the European leg, so start practicing now because chances are Harold will be asking you to moan at your show

4. Liam saying you are the loudest show on tour so far

Liam: Asks crowd to sing

Crowd: Quiet as fuck


We all know he says it to every crowd at every show, but he’s so damn adorable we just let it slide

5. Liam wearing hilarious fan gifts

From hamburger hats to banana suits, throw it to Liam and he will most likely put it on

6.  Louis antagonizing everyone on stage

Liam is his biggest target, but this little shit also loves to annoy Niall and act like a child on stage

7. The classic Niall Horan crotch grab and jump

Niall is electric on stage, just exudes so much energy and enjoys every minute

8. Harry holding his pants during the WMYB solo

Thanks to this fiasco

Harry now always holds his pants during the solo even with the new formation

9. Harry paying attention to the dads

He notices them before he will ever notice one of us, hope you guys are taking your dads to OTRA (and I’m not talking about Liam)

10. Harry will try to make you to shut up

I feel you should all take this time to scream out your deepest darkest thoughts to the boys while the whole stadium is silent, you’ll be vine famous and they will be sure to hear you

11. Liam will bust out the moves

Liam has actual moves and I can’t wait to see just what he will do on this leg of the tour

12. All four will effortlessly cover Zayn’s solos

No footage for this because I didn’t want any spoilers, but from what I’ve heard, the boys take turns doing Zayn’s parts and although it will never compare, they truly do their best. I enjoy that it gives the boys a chance to show that they have great singing ability and that they will manage to go on without a key member.

13. One will most likely be wearing black or white

Most shows they all wore neutral colors so expect a lot of white and black shirts.

14. Harry doing the whale

A WWA favorite has carried over into OTRA

15. Liam reading signs

Whats the best way to stall inbetween songs? How about reading all the signs in the crowd. From Larry signs to asking about what a Loaded Gun is..Liam reads it all

16. Niam dance in SOML

One of the cutest things you will ever see

17. Harry pounding the air

Boy knows how to feel the music


Hope you aren’t done with fireworks after the fourth, because OTRA is gonna be full of them

This tour is so beautiful when the fireworks go off…breathtaking


At the end of the day, your OTRA concert will be better than you ever expected, the boys are back and in full force. They have been delivering and giving it all they got while also making it such a fun and crazy show! SO GET READY BECAUSE OTRA IS BACK TONIGHT!

ALSO!!! I only have 19 things and everyone loves even numbers! So comment below or tweet me (@shelleyann1817) a NUMBER 20!  Of something you can expect at every OTRA show!!!
